Also the service is excellent and the staff are very helpful. I’m looking forward to going back to this lovely little Indian Restaurant.

Naan bread was the best I had ever tasted! The mains were just enough for a lunch, and a bit different from the standard types. The vegetarian starter was really tasty, and I preferred it to the chicken. My only tiny comment was the masala chips, which were nice though I would maybe have preferred them to be chunkier from fresh potatoes rather than french fries style, but that is a purely personal choice. I will definitely come again and will try some of the veggie options from the al a carte next time.

It is really a great place, food was delicious, service outstanding! As I was dining alone, decided to try several appetizers instead of an entree! Everything was delicious, bread, coconut shrimp, sea bass! I regret not to be in a big group to be able to try more of the delicious food I saw served in other tables!

When we got in it looked okay. the card came and we were there a little before 6pm. we had a sort of cheaper card back then, but that was not reflected in the food. we enjoyed every bite there and it was certainly not expensive. if we had lived there we would have gone there more often!

The food was delicious. The mango peshawar naan breads were as tasty as there were unusual. All in all a great meal in a friendly, pleasant and calm atmosphere. Thank you to all the staff.

The food and service were outstanding and no one rushed us despite it being a busy Saturday lunchtime. It was pretty noisy, but after a couple of years of COVID restrictions, who minds listening to other tables having a great time? Definitely be back here!

We percevered and eventually gotta small table for two. Staff were friendly and our food was well tasty. I,d go back again and hopefully receive a better table next time. Thanks John M

An early reserved table at 1700hrs, but there were already diners seated, which we took as a good sign. Starter of Chicken 65 was excellent, with succulent breast of chicken and crisp batter. My main of Lamb Rogan Josh was melt in the mouth, with deep intense flavour, simply superb. My partner's South Indian Garlic Chicken, was also full of flavour and looked mouthwatering. A cracking garlic and coriander naan with jasmine rice rounded off an excellent meal Will be back.

It was busy so assumed they needed our table, although there were plenty of people there before us, so not a nice feeling. Also it was very noisy indeed, which didn't help the ambience.

There was an excellent choice of food from street food to traditional curries and a good selection of sides. We had poppadoms and dips plus some of the best samosas we've had in a long time.The lamb and chicken curries we chose to share were very tasty with meltingly tender lean meat. These were accompanied by mushroom and pea rice and a great mango peshwari naan. Service was smooth and efficient and we had a really enjoyable experience. We would definitely recommend the Madras cafe but it's a relatively small venue so book in advance to guarantee a table.

Chicken and lamb very freshly cooked, and nicely flavoured. Good portions, not too rich! It's a nice medium sized restaurant 30 odd places, all within view of the staff area, so service was sharp as well as friendly. Among the best I've been to in Glasgow which is a very competitive City. We will be returning to try a fish dish or two!
