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…

Ashoka at the Quay

The Quay, Springfield Quay, Glasgow, G5 8NP

See Ashton Lane branch for review


6–8 Clerk Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9HX

Although a relative newcomer, Tanjore is becoming an increasingly popular spot for diners in the know. And quite rightly so. Tanjore exquisitely exhibits the best of south Indian cuisine, a lot of which is not to be found on menus in other Indian…


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…

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…

Banana Leaf

76B Old Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G3 8RE

The food of Tamil Nadu with its intriguing sauces and eye-candy dosai, idly and vada is perennially seductive. The outsize lamb dosa is a lentil pancake with a spicy lamb filling, tamarind-infused sauce and two delicious chutneys one coconut and one…


235 North Street, Glasgow, G3 7DL

The Koh-i-Noor is Glasgow’s oldest Indian restaurant. Celebrating its 50th birthday in 2014, its longevity is testament to a formula that clearly works, and it’s something they’re very proud of – a photocollage of famous visitors is displayed on the…

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…


2 Byres Road, Glasgow, G11 5JY

It’s almost a running joke when someone new sets up at this jinxed venue at the bottom of Byres Road. Nothing ever lasts it seems – even the clout of Tony Macaroni couldn’t maintain operations recently for more than a few months. Nearby Tribeca ’s…

India Quay

181 Finnieston Street, Glasgow, G3 8HE

Sitting on the corner of Lancefield Quay, India Quay is a reliable choice in a part of town that’s not particularly well-provided with restaurants. Its huge wraparound windows allow a panorama that takes in the Hydro, the Clyde Arc and the lights of the…

7 Church Street, Glasgow, G11 5JP

Dining at Balbir’s is a sumptuous experience. The large elegantly designed space creates an immediate sense of well-being while the interesting, reasonably priced wine list and well-stocked bar ensure that all tastes are catered for. Negotiating the…

Café India

29 Albion Street, Glasgow, G1 1LH

Since it opened in 1987 Café India has had mixed fortunes, thriving in Charing Cross before it burned down, moved across town and suffered a revolving ‘under new management’ sign over the door. In October the original owner bought it back so technically…

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…

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…

The Clay Oven

86 Morningside Road, Edinburgh, EH10 4BY

A steady stream of business flocks to this neighbourhood restaurant, and passing trade is not the secret. Loyal Morningside residents provide the mainstay for success in an establishment where pristine white linen tablecloths and handsomely uniformed…

Kebab Mahal

7 Nicolson Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9BH

The well-worn décor and slightly greasy menu at Kebab Mahal may not have changed greatly over the years since opening in 1979, but neither have the prices. Busy with students and locals, it has the feel of a classic Indian takeaway right down to the…

Kebabish Grill

323–325 Victoria Road, Glasgow, G42 7SA

Kebabish Grill’s lime green neon sign has been a landmark on Victoria Road for almost ten years, and its enduring popularity with its primarily Asian clientele is easy to understand. On entering the cheery, well-lit restaurant you first pass a huge…

Tuk Tuk

1 Leven Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9LH

Since opening in late 2012, Tuk Tuk has brought a dash of modern India to this corner of Tollcross. On offer is a westernised take on the Indian street food delivered in small bowls, saucepans and tin plates by Tuk Tuk wallahs dressed in black aprons…

The Dhabba

44 Candleriggs, Glasgow, G1 1LE

A very modern curryhouse styled as an upmarket diner, The Dhabba has an atmosphere as lively as its food and the frequent weekend queues at the door. The menu is classy and authentic North Indian, specialising in dum pukht, which are slow-cooked curries…


4–8 Lochrin Buildings, Gilmore Place, Edinburgh, EH3 9NB

Downhill from Bruntsfield Links, between the Cameo and the King’s Theatre, Iman’s claims to offer ‘a true taste of Punjab’. This is backed up with 'Mum’s home cooked specials' – eight desi saag, (traditional spinach, potato and fenugreek) dishes…

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…


29 St Leonard's Street, Edinburgh, Midlothian, EH8 9QN

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…


1590 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G14 9DB

After two decades of serving loyal Scotstoun locals, Neelim must be doing something right. Couples and families flock here, whether it be for a sit-down dinner or some takeaway dishes to enjoy at home, and it can fill up even on week nights. The menu…


126–130 Easter Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5RJ

Meandering down Easter Road, you could easily walk past the humble exterior of Rivage. But once inside, your senses are rewarded with alluring aromas from the tandoor oven, which is visible from the main dining room. Since opening in 2007, Rivage has…
