Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

In the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City sits the newly refurbished Obsession of India. A fresh lick of paint, cool lighting, an ultra modern bar and bathrooms have propelled the place into 2019 and made it a stand-out option for one of the best curries in the area. A lively energy awaits inside and the smartly dressed staff are on the case from the moment the door opens. All food is made to order and the chefs are very accommodating, making no fuss over small changes. The staples of Indian eating are free from food colouring here and sit perfectly in a balance of light and rich. In keeping with the exceptional service, diners are allowed to return any dish that is not 100 per cent to their liking. Standout dishes such as the chicken tikka shahi karahi   feature good portions of tender meat, and most dishes – including house specials – can be made vegetarian, a feature rare in the city. A curry house doing dishes this conscientiously may not, quite rightly, be the keenest priced on the à la carte, yet pre-theatre and set deals help make this place a must visit at any time.
