The Wee Curry Shop
7 Buccleuch Street, Glasgow 0141 353 0777, www.motherindia.co.uk
For over a decade this Garnethill dining room has been one of Glasgow's best loved little eating spots, with just 25 covers but a big reputation for simple, fresh curries and a down-to-earth approach. There are now three Wees in town, the two others on or near Byres Road.
The Wee Restaurant
17 Main Street, North Queensferry, 01383 616263, www.theweerestaurant.co.uk
Craig and Vikki Wood's simple but confident restaurant by the Forth Rail Bridge continues to garner praise, with the Michelin guide rating it as one of the better value places to eat around. Originally just 24 covers, it has grown by a further ten with the opening of an extension, The Study, late last year.
Two Fat Ladies
88 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow 0141 339 1944, www.twofatladiesrestaurant.com
This tiny fish restaurant, named for its address not its proprietors, created quite a stir in Glasgow's West End when it opened in the 80s – a time when Scottish seafood didn't generally stop in Scotland on its way to the continent. The TFL empire has grown under Ryan James, but this remains a cornerstone.
