It may be small but you can’t miss Nutan’s in the line of shops and cafes near the Cameo Cinema in Tollcross. Bold and bright both inside and out, this colourful eatery offers authentic, home-cooked Indian food. The menu is short but good value, with starters focusing on pakora and samosas, the latter a generous pasty-sized version, full of spiced potato and chickpeas. The meat and veggie mains vary depending on daily specials but the chicken korma is especially good. Full of flavour and spice and cooked to a medium heat, it’s a world away from the traditional sweet, creamy and often bland versions on offer elsewhere. Ideal for a quick bite before the cinema or theatre, it’s also handy for a cheap takeaway on the way home on this side of town.
