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 2011 edition.

This modern tandoori restaurant offers mid-range dining on the busy main drag of Sauchiehall St. Sleek service meets Bhangra and Bollywood bling in an intimate but comfortable setting. Images featuring Bollywood stars and cultural icons adorn shiny formica and chrome-clad walls. Most tables command great street-side views to watch the action beyond, while stairs lead to the more glitzy mezzanine, ideal for small groups. While the impressive menu of traditional and modern Indian cuisine raises expectations, delivery can be a little inconsistent. Standard fare egg pakora is slighty oily, and chicken chasni lacks the quality expected, but plenty of flair is evident for more bespoke dishes. Hot favourite, albeit pricey, is the Goanese fish and prawns, which marries meaty cod and juicy Atlantic-style prawns in a velvety coconut sauce laced with endorphin-raising fresh green chillis. The attractively priced pre-theatre thali platters and lunchtime menus incorporate a wide choice of classic dishes such as dopiaza, bhoona, korma and masala, and are well-placed to appeal to corporate diners and nearby theatregoers.
