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…

Tanjore

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…

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…

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…

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…

Kama Sutra

105-109 Lothian Road, Edinburgh, EH3 9AN

If you’re looking for a spot of nourishment in between hitting a couple of Lothian Road’s bars and pubs, then Kama Sutra may serve as your pit-stop. With a menu incorporating classic curries as well as slightly more unfamiliar dishes, there’s plenty…

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…

The Spice Pavilion

3a1 Dundas Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6QG

Tucked into an unassuming New Town basement, one could be forgiven for thinking Spice Pavillion was just your typical neighbourhood Indian. But a look inside the restaurant will make you think again. Its elegant yet warm, welcoming surroundings make…

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…

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…

Killermont Polo Club

2022 Maryhill Road, Glasgow, G20 0AB

Mr Singh's India

149 Elderslie Street, Glasgow, G3 7JR

Mithas

7 Dock Place, Edinburgh, EH6 6LU

Though Scotland’s capital may be teeming with Indian restaurants and curry houses, Mithas on Dock Place is truly one of a kind in Edinburgh. With an innovative and exciting menu which features stylish and exotic twists on Indian favourites, as well as…

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…

Ashoka

97 Hanover Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1DJ

Having firmly positioned itself on the West of Scotland dining scene, with half-a-dozen outlets (as well as a number of associated stablemates, including the Shak brand), it should come as no surprise that Glasgow kari kings Ashoka have eventually moved…

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…

Iman's

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…

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…

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…

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…

Neelim

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…

Rivage

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…

Spice Quarter - Leeds

2 Millennium Square, West Yorkshire, Leeds, LS2 3AD

Billed as 'the ultimate buffet', Spice Quarter brings four different cuisines together to create a new concept in dining out. Located in the Electric Press Building in central Leeds, the restaurant offers diners a choice of more than 100 dishes from…

Gurkha Café

25–27 Cockburn Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1BP

Gurkha Café proudly showcases the cuisine of Nepal in a venue where remnants of previous tenants remain: the incongruous mock-rustic Italian terracotta tile-roofed bar now shares space with stupas and Annapurna posters. Aside from a couple of tables…
