The original Mr Singh and his sons opened this contemporary, fusion Indian restaurant with a Scottish twist, in September 1994. Now the grandsons are also involved.

The restaurant marries Scottish staples such as haggis, thistle and tartan and incorporates it into fine Indian cuisine, decoration and dress respectively. By this is meant haggis is cooked in different Indian styles, thistles adorn the tables as elegant table decoration and some of the waiters wear tartan kilts!! The tartan is MacRae or now dubbed McCurry!!

I had a starter of haggis, neeps and tattie samosas (x2) on a bed of sweet and sour chick peas with a simple side salad, followed by a main course of chicken tikka ginger chilli bhoona accompanied by the Papa Singh’s nan.
The starter and main course are from the Connoisseur range and the nan is a speciality (from the Taster Menu).

The samosas were freshly made and the combination worked very well ie the richness of the samosas was complimented very well with the tartness of the chick peas. The bhoona was exceptional. There were juliennes of ginger tempered with chilli and spices and cooked with chicken tikka in a thick sauce. The nan was amazing filled with cheese, onion, coriander and chicken tikka.

There are of course many other dishes both traditional and restaurant specific.The food and service was exceptional, a true testament to the whole family.

Definitely one of the finest Indian restaurants in Glasgow, with a couple of unique touches. A restaurant frequented by many a sports star from the world of golf and football alike.

This restaurant is a true, bona fide Indian restaurant which is owned by and run by Indians and food also cooked by Indian chefs.

From trams to art!!

The BFM visited Tramway and was totally amazed!!

25 Albert Drive
Glasgow
G41 2PE
United Kingdom
http://www.tramway.org
0845 330 3501

It started as Caplawhill tramshed in 1893 before becoming a Tram and bus depot. During the war aircraft wings were manufactured and in
1964 it opened as The Transport Museum. From the early 1990’s til now it has became an art space.

It has two art spaces, a studio, a visual arts studio, a large foyer display area, a cafe and a Garden Sanctuary. It is also the HQ of the Scottish Ballet who also rehearse here. The cafe had a good selection of drinks and snacks. A great place for a cuppa!!!

A great use of an old building and space, would be nice if there was a more formal restaurant.

World buffet in Glasgow

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
Glasgow

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.
