Khublai Khan Mongolian Barbecue Restaurant

0.3 miles
26 Candleriggs, Merchant City, Glasgow, G1 1LD

Mongolian barbecue may be a gimmick, but it can be a lot of fun, and this large Merchant City establishment is the place to experience it. It works like a buffet, but you pick the food before it’s cooked, assembling the ingredients for a stir-fry from…

Las Iguanas

0.3 miles
16-20 West Nile Street, Glasgow, G1 2PW

Newly opened in early 2014, the Glasgow outpost of Las Iguanas had already created sufficient buzz to fill up midweek soon after arriving – and with room for 200 diners plus a few at the bar, it’s a big place. There are now over 30 restaurants in the…

Boteco do Brasil

0.4 miles
62 Trongate, Glasgow, G1 5EP

Café Cossachok

0.4 miles
Trongate 103, 10 King Street, Glasgow, G1 5QP

There’s a genuine feel to Café Cossachock – as if it’s run as a service for homesick Russians rather than as a mere business opportunity. Dishes are the real deal – for example, beef stroganoff here is not the mushrooms-and-sour-cream concoction we…

Buzzy's Restaurant and Bar

0.4 miles
Princes Square, 48 Buchanan Street, Glasgow, G1 3JX

Princes Square has become somewhat of a dining haven for shoppers. Among the eclectic range of dining options is Buzzy Wares, which has held residence in the square’s courtyard for over 25 years. The North American / Mexican menu plays it relatively…

The Calabash Restaurant

0.4 miles
57 Union Street, Glasgow, G1 3RB

This Union Street basement is as much a meeting place for Glasgow’s tiny African community as it is a restaurant, with folk dropping in for a beer on the way home from work, catching up with friends and watching football on the big screen TV. Whenever…

Anatolia Chargrill

0.5 miles
140 St Vincent St, Glasgow, G2 5LA

The flames from the grill seductively lick the skewered meat in the open kitchen at the rear of this smart dining room. It’s real charcoal – not gas – and it all adds to the flavour of the cooking. The menu here is long, so the hot or cold lux meze…

Viva Brazil

0.6 miles
87–91 Bothwell Street, Glasgow, G2 7AA

The rodizio style of serving at Viva Brazil is a committed carnivore’s dream, with virtually unlimited quantities of freshly grilled meat served at your table until you’ve had enough, for one inclusive price. Rump, sirloin and rib of beef, as well as…


0.7 miles
363 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G2 8LT

This is a rodizio, a Brazilian style, all the meat you can eat meal. Set your coaster to red and the meat stops coming – leave it at green and the busy, eager, waiter will keep offering you more slices of chicken, lamb, beef, or pork. The results are…

Alla Turca

0.7 miles
192 Pitt Street, Glasgow, G2 4DY

As aromas from Scottish scallops and a delicious pomegranate salad wash over the room, under the soft glow from hanging lanterns, it’s easy to imagine that outside is somewhere more exotic than Glasgow. An engaging subtlety runs through everything here…


0.7 miles
22 Bridge Street, Glasgow, G5 9HR

Bacon and scrambled eggs might sound like an odd way to start a meal – but when the bacon is basterma (Egyptian air-dried beef) and the eggs are infused with Egyptian spices, and it’s cooked fresh by chef patron Ali Hammudah, it works very well. It sets…

Babylon Café

0.8 miles
Clyde Place, Glasgow, G5 8AQ

This new Persian and Middle Eastern venture sits with an Indian curry house to its left and an Egyptian restaurant to the right – which sort of makes sense in world terms. It's nothing fancy inside – clean, crisp lines and tables hugging the walls on…

Athena Greek Taverna

1.2 miles
141 Elderslie Street, Glasgow, G3 7AW

The Bay Tree Restaurant

1.5 miles
403 Great Western Road, Glasgow, G4 9HY

A café that has served over 50 years from the same site can’t be doing much wrong. As one of the first Arabian restaurants in Scotland the Bay Tree has built a reputation for fresh food and generous servings. The interior makes good use of the small…

The Greek Golden Kebab

2.6 miles
34 Sinclair Drive, Glasgow, G42 9QE

This is the sort of place people imagine when they think of a Greek restaurant. All the favourites are on the menu, while rustic bric-a-brac and cozy seating go some way to reaffirming the ‘old-fashioned neighbourhood restaurant’ vibe – which is exactly…


2.7 miles
1179 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow, G41 3NQ

Sometimes the playful messiness that comes with devouring a towering burger is part of its charm, and this is certainly the case at Ketchup's Shawlands branch – aimed more at families than the student-driven Ashton Lane venue. There is inventiveness in…

Bibi's Cantina

2.8 miles
599 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G11 6HY

Even on an unremarkable evening during the week, Bibi's Cantina is packed, clearly a popular neighbourhood restaurant. With only 35 covers, it's a snug place to dine but the food is fantastically fresh and thoughtfully prepared. The friendly staff…
