Curryhouse run by proud Southsiders, serving an enormous selection of North Indian dishes.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Southside institution Danny Singh’s closed late last year, but the family business lives on in Govanhill at New Gandhi. Hidden atop a short flight of stairs on Victoria Road, a huge range of curries are served – but don’t let that sizeable menu fool you – these are dishes given attention and served with love and pride. From the top, poppadums come with spiced onions and a wonderful mint chutney, a deceptively fiery condiment that brings with it the sweetness of pomegranate seeds. For starters, there’s plenty of pakora, puri and samosa, while mains draw from a tandoori grill and a range of sauce based dishes, from the classics to the connoisseur selection – the majority are available as small tapas-style portions. South Indian garlic with lamb is succulent and spicy but not overpowering, and the pistachio-flavoured pista pasanda pairs harmoniously with fresh vegetables from the local market. If you’re vegan, they’ll make your dish free of animal produce, and there are loads of European and child-friendly options, too.

The List's rating

  • High point: Local connections and family-friendly vibe

As a new, modern styled, premier Indian restaurant in the south side of Glasgow, we believe the New Gandhi stands alone in its attention to the details and delights of the culinary senses. The deep aromas, painstakingly perfected from the riches of the mother country, swirl through a lavishly assembled contemporary space. The taste of refined spices and complex flavours beckons to the tongues of all people, from the most discriminating to the uninitiated and inexperienced plates alike, imparting the alluring pleasures of traditional Indian food. The rich culture of India has found a home in the heart of Glasgow, and the concept of a Glasgow-based Indian restaurant will never be the same.
