Review on Shish Mahal
Glasgow's original curry house opened in 1954 as the Taj Mahal, before changing its name (a reference to The Palace of Mirrors in Lahore) and undergoing a serious refit during the 1990s. It now boasts a stylish glass frontage and a mezzanine area for private functions and is still regarded as the blueprint for most other Indians in the city Ė which says a lot about its enduring qualities.
The menu is of epic proportions with a bewildering choice of starters and tandooris, lots of balti-style specialities and curries from all corners of the Sub-continent. Chicken achari flavoured with pickling spices, and chicken tikka nasheder laced with brandy and served in a cast-iron karahi are typical.
Also look for the section devoted to owner Ali Aslam's 'Old Favourites'. The wine list does a good job in promoting suitable tipples for the food on offer.
