The BFM and young daughter went to Glasgow on a day trip. We arrived at 12.15 and she was a tad hungry. We were walking along Sauchiehall Street and came across Cook & Indi’s World Buffet.
90 Renfield Street

Good job we got in when we did as the place filled up quickly and there was a queue to get in. There was an ample selection for the price paid. It was £5.99 for me and £3 for the lil lady.
The range of food was good in places and wanting in others. I managed to get around almost all. The Italian selection was a range of pizzas which were flavourless, macaroni cheese which was bland and had no salt and pesto pasta which was nice. My daughter enjoyed this, so that was ok.
Then moved onto the starters and accompaniments. The starters were fantastic. Proper coal tandoori wings,spicy wings,chicken pakoras to name but a few. The accompanying sauces and pickles should be next to these mixed starters and nans should not be there,they should be with the mains. There was no salad either.
The sushi selection was nice with some nice wasabi.
Onto the mains, the Indian selection reflected North to South ie Chicken Kashmiri, Lamb Jaipuri and Fish Malabari. My favourite was the lamb, it was cooked to perfection and followed by fish Malabari. The Kashmiri dish was bland and chicken Rogan Josh was not Rogan Josh,but it was nice. The rice was well presented on banana leaves.
Next there was a cold salad selection which was ample. The very disappointing bit was the Mexican and Spanish. No Spanish dishes and just Chilli Con Carne. There was nachos and sour cream and guacamole, but the salsa wasn’t proper salsa.
The Oriental section I liked, Thai veg curry was tasty, chicken curry, sweet and sour chicken, special fried rice and noodles were all lovely. If the chain is owned by Indians then in my view beef should not be served.
My daughter loved the ice cream and jelly!! Staff were efficient. I guess you get what you pay for. There is room for improvement guys.
Once again the BFM shares the food love!!! Ciao down now!!!
