    Been going to "Charcoals" for years (both places in Glasgow) I've recommended it to friends and family and only heard praise for the food, service and atmosphere, not a single negative comment. Whither its afternoon or evening weekend or mid week makes no difference. Consistently good, latest outing on 29/12, comments from the table, best Rogan josh ever, lamb desi superb, all their various awards are well justified. Portions are a good size, fresh cooked and hot to the table.

    Not as good as we expected. Restaurant was very cold. Struggled to see how they have won all those awards as the quality of the food we received was pretty average. My dopiaza was OK but lacked any distinct spice taste. My wife’s prawn dish was overly smothered in yogurt. Papadums were cold, and my peshwari nan was undercooked. Service was OK but I don’t think we’ll be going back.

    We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service. The service charge for a table of 3 was a more of an unpleasant surprise. Very handy for gigs at the Barras.

    If you’re looking for a great curry then Charcoals is the place to go. Delicious food and there’s often a little extra surprise delivered to your table (an additional starter for example) to add to the experience. Friendly service too. Would definitely recommend!

    I selected this restaurant on the back of the immensely positive reviews, and I wasn't disappointed at all. Don't be fooled by the relatively nondescript decor, this is food to be reckoned with. You can tell when food is cooked with love, and Ali's team clearly take enormous pride in hitting the highest of standards. The menu has a few unusual offerings, as well as the kind of fare you'd typically find in a South Asian restaurant. For our main dishes, we opted for Chicken Jhatpat and Lamb Nihari, and both were sensational. Before that, we had some starters and they were also excellent. In addition to the food we ordered, a number of complimentary dishes were brought to our table. This is a very worthwhile kind of showing off, as each offering was both delicious and unusual. Ali was charmingly attentive, and you can tell he is the kind of entrepreneur who sets the standards for his business. He looked almost embarrassed as we told him how much we were enjoying the food, even though he must hear it day and night. If you are an 'all about the food' diner then this is the place for you. I just wish I'd found it sooner.

    The most amazing Indian cuisine experience in Glasgow. Charcoals is absolutely outstanding when it comes to food and customer service. The waiting staff and owner are attentive of your every need and provide a smile and exceptional service every time. The food is flavoursome, great quality and served with plenty. This place is phenomenal for certain! I for sure and my family will not be attending any other Indian restaurant in Glasgow ever again! Full marks to Ali and all his team!

    Our second visit in a week. Food was perfect. We had lamb chasni and lamb Rohan Josh. Lamb could not have been more tender. Restaurant was busy inside and out and they were doing a brisk take out but our service was efficient and personal. Will return.
