The service and quality of food is first class. Looking at the a la carte prices it is expensive but there is cheaper option before 6.30pm (6pm weekends) which is much better value. £15.95 for 2 courses with rice or bread (popadoms inc). Flavours in the curries are outstanding and portions are good. Great atmosphere and worth paying more for... More

We booked very last minute and they managed to squeeze us in just before Christmas along with lots of christmas party nights with large tables. Initially it was a bit of a wait and no one seemed to be in charge at the door. However, they redeemed themselves with the most fantastic food with friendly service and at a reasonable... More

My partner and I aren't the greatest fans of Indian god but after a strong recommendation at the hotel we tried it out. It was lovely. Wasn't sure about way to order as all the names in the menu were unfamiliar. But our waiter was very good and help us choose. He said Ben made his own suggestions. I'm glad... More

My and my friends visited Glasgow for the holidays and the guy at the hotel recommended this place. I was not disappointed at all. The food is different from any Indian food we've seen before. The staff are friendly and helpful. Ask the staff to suggest their favourite dishes. You will not go wrong.

This place is pricey but the food is fresh and the quality good. The recommended "hot" dishes are not too hot and all dishes are recommended for all palates. The Chicken balls with cheese fillings are not that great, having tried them on several occasions and I still cannot find them worth recommending, but all other dishes are good, fragrant... More

We visited this place for lunch. We ordered for one Rogan Josh, Biryani and Chicken Makhanwala. The quality of food was poor it was very ordinary and it was even highly priced which cannot be justified either by the ambience or the taste of the food. The service was poor as it took almost 30 min for the food to... More

Birthday dinner went down well with all guests, young and old. Ingredients were as fresh as can be and the staff were outstanding in helping us. We felt welcome, relaxed and spoiled. The taste of each dish was spot on and delicious.

Thank Si M
