Review on Charcoals

Do not be fooled by the unassuming exterior of Charcoals in the city centre of Glasgow, because this is a a gem of an Indian restaurant that is the recipient of multi-awards. Inside the cosy restaurant the bar takes centre stage, small tables are simply laid and walls are adorned with gold framed paintings depicting Indian scenes. The ambience is relaxed and welcoming with first-class service provided by the Maitre d' and his staff.

Given the name, it comes as no surprise that the Indian cuisine is cooked on a large charcoal grill using carefully sourced ingredients and spices. The extensive a la carte menu will satisfy all tastes, from those wanting a more classic dish to regional specialities. Kick off with chicken hara bhara kebab, chicken marinated in a host of green spices before a main course of lamb desi, traditionally cooked on the bone in an exotic mix of herbs and tomatoes or fish fans might opt for the fish masala cooked in butter sauce and exotic spices. The restaurant also offers an extremely good value two course lunch and pre-theatre menus.

There's a carefully assembled wine list to complement the food together with Indian beers.
