Review on The Dhabba

Dhabbas are unpretentious roadside diners common across North India, and this stylish venue aims to bring an authentic taste of that region to Glasgow's Merchant City district. Since opening, the place has garnered rave reviews for its dazzling food and equally stunning decor - think vibrant colour schemes, luxuriant greenery and massive photos on the walls.

The kitchen puts its faith in top-notch ingredients, authentic cooking techniques and traditional recipes - although there's a healthy edge to the food, with minimum use of oil, butter and cream. A raft of tandooris and tikkas are one of the high points - expect anything from black bream and monkfish to impressive raan sikandari (sizzling baby leg of lamb cooked in its own juices and served with dark rum or plum sauce).

Also look for the special 'dum pukt' dishes based on the princely eighteenth-century tradition of cooking in sealed pots (try lamb pieces in a golden saffron sauce garnished with a dish of egg yolk). There are also fascinating curries, vegetables and breads (look for the delicate, ultra-thin roomali roti).
