About
Since arriving on the Glasgow’s Southside in 1982, the name Turban Tandoori has become synonymous with quality Indian food. This has been achieved by using only the best local produce, fresh herbs and carefully selected whole spices. It is also in no small measure down to you, our customers. From day one till now your support has been overwhelming. Our cuisine ranges from the exotic to the simple homely cuisine of the North and South Indian region ensuring authentic taste and flavour. Our aim has always been to provide traditional dishes by preserving the classic Indian recipes and enhance our offering with some signature dishes to reflect the changing food trends in modern India. Over the years we have evolved to be instrumental in changing the perceptions of the subcontinent’s cuisine thus ensuring our position as one of Glasgow’s leading Indian restaurants and a destination of choice for Indian food lovers.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came here for dinner on a Saturday evening which we had previously booked as the restaurant always seems fairly busy and we were shown to our table on arrival.There was a general buzz in the restaurant with some diners having to wait for a table. After perusing the menu we placed our order of mixed pakoras and a sharing platter with accompaniments of lamb tandoori on a sizzling plate, chicken Achari, Kerala style chicken and a Jalfrezi together with boiled rice and naans. While awaiting the food we had Pinot Grigio , southern comfort with lemonade and kingfisher lager and our server Chai was very attentive. When the food arrived it was freshly cooked and full of flavour.To finish our meals we had a few baileys on ice. When we had paid our bill our server arranged a taxi home for us and a wonderful evening was had by all. We would recommend a visit here and make sure you book in advance so as not to be disappointed.

Been going to the Turban for long time now and never written a review....don't know why ? Quite simply the best Indian food I have tasted across many restaurants in UK. Without a doubt the best staff and the owners are wonderful people. Go out there way to make you welcome. A delight to go for a night out or a takeaway. Its top notch quality food and the preparation shows in the taste. Don't miss out on this Indian restaurant. Even raised substantial money for the NHS by donating takeaway receipts during this current crisis....quality all round. Billy Mc

Our first time back in 18 months and everything was just perfect. The guys were their usual kind & friendly selves, and all came over to say hello. Food arrived sizzling on the dish perfectly cooked just the way we like it. Monkfish, Salmon and King prawns- a pescatarian heaven- no one does it as good as the Turban. Great new ambiance and some nice plush new decor. Old school class. Well done guys- great job as always. see you next week!

The only reason we visited this restaurant is that our car is off the road and it’s on the train line from where we stay. We were sorely disappointed with the quality of the food which, as far as we are concerned having visited numerous Indian restaurants, some good, some not so good, is not freshly cooked. The haggis bon bons were revolting, we’re not sure what kind of batter they were in as they looked pre-bought. We are under the impression that chicken tikka came on a sizzling plate, ours wasn’t and the chicken was dry. Either the chicken tikka was left sitting under a heat lamp or health and safety are at work here. The only redeeming point is that the wine and the service was very good, but we will not be returning.

When ordering by phone I queried the cost and was told that the 4 samosas I wanted were £4.95 each. Feeling that this was a bit much I completed the transaction anyway. When the food arrived there were 8 samosas and 4 large plastic cartons of a chick pea dish I didn’t order. I called the restaurant and spoke to the same man who took my original order. He told me that ‘ one portion of samosa’ was actually 2 and that the chick pea dish was its accompaniment. He should have told me this to begin with and I’d have saved my self £10. Also worth pointing out that the packaging should be drastically reduced. Don’t they know about the Climate Crisis! The food was average and I shan’t be ordering from them again.

Recently had another terrific night at the Turban Tandoori. A warm & friendly welcome set the tone for great service throughout the 2 hours we were there. The food was delicious as usual, especially the vegtarian option the waiter recommended that didn't seem to be on the menu.

This has always been our place to go for many years. Staff are ALWAYS friendly and welcoming and the food itself usually can't be beaten. However we were disappointed with our recent delivery which resulted in us spotting not one but 3 grey hairs. Neither of us has Grey hair and we have no animals so 100% not ours. Put us righy off what would have been another very enjoyable meal. Disappointed. Hair nets or something required in the kitchen! Come on Turban Tandoori, you're better than this!

It's not on the menu but the Special Beef is something to ask for if you like your curry sauce thick and part of the meat. It allows you to taste the meat with the sauce adding to the taste rather than just something which is soaked up in the rice or breads. Lovely

I visited this restaurant with a group of friends for our Christmas night out. I cannot find fault with it at all. We felt very safe with the covid measures in place. Our temperature was taken on arrival and staff were very careful to clean and sanitise the tables in between guests. The food was absolutely delicious and very filling. The waiters were friendly and efficient. A lovely night out. I will definitely return.

Four of us were booked for 6pm on Saturday but we were struggling to get a drink and to get them to take our order we had to ask 3 or 4 times before it was taken. People came in after us and got served very quickly. We eventually got our meal 45 minutes later, so we only left a £2 tip

I always enjoy my takeaways from here. It’s expensive but worth it. The restaurant looks very nice to sit in. The quality is reflected in the price. I can never find the menu online though. I’m not adventurous and always order the same but my husband likes to try different things so I picked up a menu last time to see what we will have next time.

Leaving a 5 star review here for every single visit - me and my fiancé are regular visitors of turban tandoori. It’s our once a month treat and it’s never let us down. Food is genuinely better than any other Indian restaurant you will visit. Staff lovely and attentive. Would be lost without this Giffnock gem!

My husband and I live near this restaurant and eat their food about once a week. The quality and consistency is outstanding. Of particular note is the tandoori salmon & tandoori chicken, but every dish we’ve ever tried is amazing. Pakoras are by far the best I’ve had. The Beautiful desi rice is a must. Would 100%recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates Indian food. Top quality at fair and reasonable prices.

First time visit based on recommendations from family and they weren’t wrong. Service was impeccable and personable with lots of recommendations given on what to order based on our pallet. Has instantly become a firm favourite, and we’ll 100% be making a return visit soon.
