Booked a table here on a deal prior to attending a gig at the O2. Food was first class and the staff were welcoming and very knowledgeable when discussing the menu. Would Deffo return and recommended.

Not your normal run of the mill menu it is a bit more authentic to traditional Indian fare. Food is very tasty and good quality. Staff are very friendly and helpful and service is very good.

A good Indian restaurant with an interesting menu. Some different choices compared to the normal Indian restaurant and the dishes are cooked very well. Set price lunchtime menu was value for money. Evening meal dishes were a little more expensive than other places in Glasgow but similar to what I've paid in other towns. Would recommend.

Spur of the moment, felt like lunch today (26 Oct 2016). Good selection of tasty dips for the popadoms at the start of the meal. For main, I had the thali selection. This can be either a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian taster menu - I chose the latter. This comprised a small (but good-sized) portion of chicken curry; lamb bhuna;... More

The lunch menu is a three course deal for under £10. There is a reasonable choice of starter and main course followed by a couple of desserts or coffee/tea. The food is well presented and tasty. For a fixed price lunch offering, the portion size was good.

The food is out of this world and is served with attention to detail and professionalism. I truly believe this to be the best Indian food I have ever eaten. I had the Lamb Chops and I would highly recommend them. The Dum Pukht is a must if you've never had it before; it will blow you away. Excellent.

This place claims to be authentic Indian. Some of the dishes (we had) was neither Indian nor authentic. I have been to a lot Indian restaurants and I would rate this below average.
