Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

With a capacity of just 24 the aptly named Wee Curry Shop caters to a steady stream of city centre diners and Garnethill residents. A short walk from Sauchiehall Street’s pedestrianised thoroughfare, the restaurant serves up Indian dishes at prices which belie the talents of the chefs at work in the open-plan kitchen. Bookshelf wallpaper, dark wood furniture and soft lighting create a homely atmosphere, ensuring the small restaurant feels cosy rather than crammed. Dining here is a fuss-free experience beginning with the limited but confident menu, which sees potentially run-of-the-mill options such as chana dhal elevated to something special thanks to a rich tomato sauce and well-balanced fresh heat. Likewise saag paneer, a familiar face in the veggie section, is taken up a notch by adding broccoli, giving the dish a bit of bite and a depth of flavour it can so easily lack. Accompaniments equally excel – aloo paratha is noteworthy, stuffed with gently spiced potatoes, so easily stodgy elsewhere here it remains deliciously flaky and light.
