This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Rawalpindi is another of Glasgow’s old-school Indians that date back generations. Most diners are regulars and there’s an easy-going vibe in the comparatively intimate space, even midweek when other city-centre restaurants can seem a bit cavernous. Staff are friendly without being overbearing, and the curries are generous without being rich and overwhelming. By and large there are not too many surprises on the menu – the exception being the inclusion of boiled egg pakora which is pleasantly light, crisp and tasty. The main dishes, such as Goanese fish and prawn curry and paneeer pasander, are very enjoyable, if lacking much distinctive spiciness. On the wall there’s a large TV showing flickering firelight on a loop, providing the comforting allusion of heat if not actual fire itself – so it’s a bit like the curries in that respect. Rawalpindi is an ideal spot for a night out in the city if you are looking for a personal and personable experience.
