Cook and Indi's World Buffet

410 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3JD

Glasgow's love affair with buffet-style dining is boundless, and it has found the ultimate mistress at this popular buffet-orama in the midst of Sauchiehall's staggering nightlife district. In the premises formerly Slumdog, Cook and Indi have managed to…

Flavours

218 Burnt Oak Broadway, Edgware, London, HA8 0AP

North West London welcomes a heart and soul-warming addition to its portfolio of family and social-oriented eateries as Indian fusion restaurant, Flavours, opens its doors in Edgware. With its décor matching its fusion style food, each area of the…

Mother India's Café

3–5 Infirmary Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1LT

The Indian 'tapas' concept is here presented with such assurance that it is puzzling not to see it replicated in curry houses across the city. The menu consists of around 50 dishes, each at around a fiver, all about the size of a generous starter. Four…

Mother India's Café

1355 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 7RU

Mother India’s Café offers all the culinary style and finesse you’d expect from the brand in an informal setting. Classy burgundy and gold flock wallpaper nods knowingly towards Indian restaurant style of old, while dark green subway bricks are…

Mother India

28 Westminster Terrace, Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G3 7RU

After a decade and a half, having spawned a dynasty stretching to the East Coast, the original Mother India is the Chesterfield sofa of the local curry scene – well worn and a bit battered round the edges but still a much loved and sought after piece of…

The Original Mosque Kitchen and Café

Edinburgh Central Mosque, 50 Potterrow, Edinburgh, EH8 9BT

Debates over its actual ‘Originality’ rage on, with the (unconnected) Mosque Kitchen over the road claiming copyright, but the Original Mosque Kitchen remains a popular spot, still resolutely lo-fi, ladling curries from school dinner drums on to paper…

Akbar's

573–581 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G3 7PQ

From the huge crystal chandeliers and neon pink highlights in the upscale dining room, to the ‘King of Curry’ strapline on the menu, there’s nothing understated about Akbar’s. The Charing Cross restaurant is the sole Scottish outpost of a Bradford-based…

Ashoka at the Quay

The Quay, Springfield Quay, Glasgow, G5 8NP

See Ashton Lane branch for review

Chillies West End

176–182 Woodlands Road, Glasgow, G3 6LL

With its zero-corkage BYOB policy, relaxed ambience and warmly contemporary décor, Chillies couldn’t be better located than the Woodlands student heartland. And Oddbins is round the corner. They do takeaway shop staples like kebabs, pizzas and burgers…

The Den at Dining In with Mother India

1347 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8AD

The bistro-like ambience of The Den relaxes and intrigues while the thoughtfully selective menu reassures the discerning diner that this is no mere Indian takeaway sit-in. Dishes are tantalisingly described by their ingredients. A range of fresh fish…

Ishq Bar and Restaurant

217-219 High Road, Harrow Weald, Harrow, HA3 5EE

Serving classic North Indian dishes from its colourful restaurant on the High Road in Harrow and Weald, Ishq has a stylish contemporary interior with plush red banquettes, exposed brick walls and an eclectic collection of Indian art. Its extensive menu…

Kalpna

2/3 St Patrick's Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9EZ

Vegetarian dining can be a minefield of narrow and samey choices. Not the case at Kalpna, whose menu declares a dedication to the pleasures of Indian vegetarian food. The interior is curiously decorated with mirrored mosaics and plaster relief under…

Kama Sutra

331 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3HW

Don’t be put off by the entrance – hinting at a restaurant that puts a cheesy theme first – for inside is a colourful, spacious yet pleasantly intimate space. Menus may proclaim 'the food of love', yet the twisted metal table dividers and heavy wooden…

Khushi's

10 Antigua Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3NH

If at first glance you thought the stylish interior of Khushi’s restaurant, with its warm, vibrantly coloured patterns stencilled on to muted grey walls, seemed a little modern to belong to Edinburgh’s oldest Indian dining establishment then you may be…

Namaste Kathmandu

17–19 Forrest Road, Edinburgh, EH1 2QH

Pale wood floors, plate glass mirrors and faintly antiseptic lighting set Namaste Kathmandu apart from the cosy décor of a traditional curry house. It is, in fact, more of a Nepalese restaurant that deftly keeps a foot in the door of the traditional…

Punjabi Junction

122–124 Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH6 5DT

Set up by the Sikh Sanjog charity and staffed by volunteers, Punjabi Junction has a 'down home' simplicity that Leithers are happy to lay claim to. The interior has an endearing blue and orange railway theme and the menu is succinct and full of…

VIP Taste

623 Cathcart Road, Glasgow, G42 8AE

You'll not want for a decent curry in Glasgow, but even by this city's high standards, VIP Taste stands out for its simple, authentic cooking. You're more likely to get 'lamb with potatoes' or 'chicken with chickpeas' than 'bhuna' or 'tikka masala…

Bollywood: The Coffee Box

99a Bruntsfield Place, Edinburgh, EH10 4HG

One day Nutan Bula would love to open her own Indian restaurant, but for the last three years she has made do with an old police box – the only one in town serving curry. It is an impressive feat, cooking up dishes to order in such cramped conditions on…

Bukharah

Lorne Hotel, 923 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G3 7TQ

Exposed brickwork and duct pipes give Bukharah an industrial feel that is complemented with contemporary furnishings, warm lighting and carefully positioned partitions that create an atmosphere more intimate than a space this size should. The…

Charcoals

26A Renfield Street, Glasgow, G2 1LU

The depth and complexity of flavours of a Charcoals curry result from the judicious use of freshly ground spices and herbs. Lamb desi served on the bone comes in a rich and abundant sauce while, by contrast, chicken saag is served in a yogurt sauce with…

Indian Gallery

450 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3JD

This modern tandoori restaurant offers mid-range dining on the busy main drag of Sauchiehall St. Sleek service meets Bhangra and Bollywood bling in an intimate but comfortable setting. Images featuring Bollywood stars and cultural icons adorn shiny…

Indian Lounge

129a Rose Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3DT

Variously known as The Indian Lounge, Tipu's Indian Lounge, or Tippoo Sahib (its previous moniker that lingers on menus and framed certificates on the walls), this stalwart of Rose Street has been serving up traditional curries and Punjabi specialities…

Indian Platform

1051 Great Western Road, Glasgow, G12 0XP

Nasreen Aksi is a stalwart of the Harlequin Ashoka chain and the owner of a couple of their most successful restaurants in Glasgow, to the extent that while some may haggle about the local curry king, there is few that will dispute that she is the…

Itihaas

17–19 Eskbank Road, Dalkeith, Edinburgh, EH22 1HD

Since opening in 2007 this neighbourhood Indian in the centre of Dalkeith has established quite a reputation. Fail to make a reservation for the bargain Sunday buffet and you may find yourself in a queue on the pavement. On the other side of the door…

Khaana

123 Rushey Green, Catford, London, SE6 4AA

Much more than a run-of-the-mill Indian restaurant, Khaana specialises in Northern Indian, Pakistani and Kashmiri cuisine in a chic and contemporary restaurant setting on the Rushey Green promenade in Catford Town Centre. Healthy, wholesome and freshly…
