Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2014/15 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2014) edition.

One of Mother India’s offspring, the small dining room’s décor pays homage to Glasgow’s proud curry heritage. Despite it’s size, the layout cleverly makes use of the space and it doesn’t feel cramped. The menu is reassuringly small and populated with quite a few unusual choices. The cuisine is not specific to one region of India, and dosas from Southern India sit side by side with lamb achari from the North. There is pakora, of course, and as well as the obligatory haggis variety, they also serve a more interesting haddock, pea and potato version. The lentil cakes are large, a little on the dry side. Mains include Malabar cod which is not available on Mondays or Tuesdays as they pride themselves on getting fresh fish locally. It's a generous portion, as is the Ashton Lane beef with okra, where the meat is slow-cooked and melts in the mouth. The thali selection represents a good pre-theatre deal and is a great way of experimenting with the enticing menu at this rewarding curryhouse.

My wife and i were taken out to dinner for a birthday treat to the wee Curry House AShton Lane.I have been eating curries in Glasgow and abroad for the last forty years and can say by far this was the worst curry I have ever received,it was in inedible,I can only assume a packet of salt was accidently tipped into the pot.I did tell the waiter the problem but what was even worse is that the chef/ cook/dinnerman did not even come and speak to me,everyone sitting at the table tasted the curry and agread it was very bad.I honestly never complain and eat almost every kind of food,one good thing is I will always remember my birthday at The Wee Curry House but for all the wrong reasons it was pathetic. PS Has anybody else experienced this. J Rice[Chef]
