Curryhouse run by proud Southsiders, serving an enormous selection of North Indian dishes.
Up a flight of stairs between shops, Mahatma Gandhi looks out on diners with the reminder: ‘God comes to the hungry in the form of food’. And while it may be unlikely you will experience Nirvana you may be pleasantly enlightened in this Indian from the Danny Singh family stable. The menu has several subheadings with lengthy choices – so it can seem a bit confusing. But staff will make recommendations on an if-you-like-that-you-will-love-this basis. Everything is made from scratch so it is easy to mix and match dietary requests. Among the starters are puris, monkfish tikka and a choice of pakoras – including a warming and spicy fish variety and fresh-tasting paneer in bright red cubes of batter. From the mains a simple vegetable curry is lifted by a lightly acidic tomato-based sauce that soaks deep into the cauliflower and potato, all topped with chopped green chillies. A recommended mosmi bahar is a much richer sweet and spicy sauce with succulent, marinated chicken breast pieces. Generous portions may defeat some people – but takeaway boxes are gladly provided.
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.
