Eating & Drinking Guide

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

You'll not want for a decent curry in Glasgow, but even by this city's high standards, VIP Taste stands out for its simple, authentic cooking. You're more likely to get 'lamb with potatoes' or 'chicken with chickpeas' than 'bhuna' or 'tikka masala' here, and at ridiculously cheap prices. Massive yoghurt-marinated legs of chicken sit alongside trays of samosas and spiced patties of lamb mince, while chapattis are made to order in front of you. Owner Abdul Rehman's main business is catering (for groups well into the hundreds) and he's provided food for various political functions over the years. A gradual refurbishment process has just finished in the kitchen and is working its way towards the front of house, but until then, anyone who can see beyond the spartan interior and who has had enough of kormas and jalfrezis might want to try this place.
