    I had dinner here with some friends and I felt as if we were being treated differently as we were 3 Asian ladies. This was more apparent initially when we started our dining experience and it did get slightly better as the evening went on. I did not like the abruptness and attitude of some of the staff that seemed to have a different level of care for our table which ultimately was biased. The food was good but the biryani not a recommendation. They were polite enough to not charge us for it. We were sat by the door, and asked if we could have different seating but were declined on a number of occasions that the other tables were booked. I watched all evening thee tables coming in and out and they could have easily accosted our request but chose not to. After spending close to a £100 for what was meant to be a birthday celebration I would have to say I am reluctant to go back. It’s an extremely small place and the ambience not my cup of tea. Unfortunately I have to say not somewhere I would return considering that there are so many places. In Glasgow to eat and of course how unwelcoming I felt certainly was the cherry on top.

    First time in Charcoals, we booked it last minute as our other plans fell through. Service was outstanding - Ali really went out his way to make us feel welcomed. Quick to take our order, got extra poppadoms given to us, main course was probably the best curry I have ever had! Everything made so fresh. Got a free gin at the end too. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good Indian. 10/10.

    As usual the service and welcome are as good as the food. Can't praise these guys enough, worth travelling to Glasgow to eat here. Make sure that you go to the new location, they have moved from the original location. 😉

    Charcoals is my favourite Indian restaurant, where the staff are super welcoming but not intrusive, food is superb quality and generous portions. I've never had a poor meal and always leave with a smile at how good it tastes. Good prices too. Thanks guys.

    The minute you open the door the tandoori smell has your mouth watering. The food was delicious, my lamb was melt in the mouth. The waiter was friendly and even gave us an extra free starter for us to try. Good service, the restaurant was quite quiet when we were in but it didn’t spoil the atmosphere. Looking forward to going back.

    Had a lovely curry at Charcoals last night. Pros: Nice food, I enjoyed the chicken pakora, chicken saag and rice, Staff were attentive Free extras including popadoms and a chickpea salad, Large Portions if this is what you want, we all left some Reasonably priced Areas for improvement: Fish pakora was quite chewy Biryani wasn’t hot like other mains Naan wasn’t the usual large buttery garlic style I’m use to Quiet restaurant, not much atmosphere A lot of the awards they display are quite dated now… Nice to try but not my favourite glasgow curry
