A word from India Quay
Glasgow"s India Quay triumphantly pairs traditional Indian cuisine with urban chic. Adjacent to the newly redeveloped Finnieston area, this restaurant overlooks the banks of the River Clyde, providing awe-inspiring views of the city's Squinty Bridge in the distance. India Quay's menu is made up of long-established Indian favourites, but they do have a few surprises up their sleeve. The restaurant's stark black and white interior oozes understated style - though dashes of flamboyance accentuate the space. Their cutlery, for instance, is specially designed to balance at right angles, creating an eye-catching visual illusion that will intriguingly play on your eyes throughout the meal. It's the little details that make India Quay's individuality stand out above the rest.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Glasgow has many Indian restaurants - most fall into the good or very good category. A Glasgow Indian restaurant needs to be very special to stand out from the crowd. India Quay achieves this by a combination of excellent food and service. (comments based on numerous visits)"
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "Amazing food, service and surroundings as always. My only negative is that there isnt an India Quay closer to home 😊"
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "We went before the Robbie Williams Swin concert and it was fantastic as usual. Friendly staff, very helpful and the food was really lovely. The music in the background is usually the music of the performer at the secc/hydro which gets everyone in the mood for the night ahead."
    dined on 26/06/2014
  • "Great service, absolutely brilliant food! The pakoras are the best I've ever tried."
    dined on 22/06/2014
  • "This is the second time I've visited this restaurant in two weeks (because the first time was great). I've now tried quite a fair few things on the menu and everything has been excellent. The service is also consistently good. I was delighted to pick up a take away menu as well. I think that, from now on, this is where I will take friends when they visit Glasgow."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "We visited for a pre concert dinner. Best chicken pakora I've tasted. The South Indian garlic chilli chicken is fantastic."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Great selection of beautifully prepared cuisine. As a sufferer of coeliac disease it was no problem to them and they went through the menu with me. Dosa bread stunning"

  • "Three of us ate at the India Quay before Dolly Parton's concert. The service was tailored to pre theatre timings but at no point did we feel rushed by staff. Every dish we had was very tasty. I would recommend the starter platter - very good value particularly on a pre theatre menu. They played Dolly in the restaurant as we ate; a nice touch."
    dined on 17/06/2014
  • "Really enjoyed the food, wine and service. The waiter was very friendly and helpful and chatted to us happily about the food (possibly because the restaurant was a bit quiet when we arrived). He recommended some dishes we had never tried before and they turned out to be delicious. I'm looking forward to trying out their pre/post theatre and lunch menus and I'm hoping that they also offer take away."

    dined on 02/06/2014
  • "Got in got the table offered and ordered drinks, menu's were handed out and we were asked if we were ready to order in the same breath. Waiter left us someone approached the table to offer drinks, we said we had ordered them, they left someone else approached and offered drinks. Constant barrage of is everything OK can I get you any more drinks. Starter arrived and plates whipped away before one of out group had finished! Main course the barrage of is everything ok. We just wanted to have a meal chat amongst ourselves and be lefy alone, this did not happen"
    dined on 02/06/2014
  • "Travelled over 50 miles to eat at this restaurant, wasn't dissapointed, the occasion was my daughter's 21st, staff bought us any drink of choice free of charge to celebrate the event. Excellent Service"
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "I booked via opentable for 4.30pm as it was the only pre concert time available. I received a phone call from the restaurant that they were too busy and was asked to arrive at 4pm, it was a bit early but I accepted it. The buffet wasn't set up and I had to wait. The mains were finally available at 4.45pm (I'd have been as well with the original 4.30pm arrival time). The food was ok but it didn't excite me, the mains that I tried were chicken tikka masaledar and chicken korma. I expected it to be better considering how booked up they were. The staff were attentive enough and pleasant and the restaurant itself was lovely. Perhaps the a la carte or pre concert menu would be better, but I don't know that I'd rush to return so I may never know."
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "The food, service and hospitality at this restaurant are all excellent - portion sizes are generous, and the menu choices are all tasty and good value for money. "
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "We booked an early table for lunch and were the only patrons for the first half hour or so. The waiter was courteous and made us feel very welcome, explaining how the buffet system worked and serving initial starters to our table. We had expected a set price 2 course lunch so were somewhat unsure what to expect from the buffet. We need not have worried. There was plenty of choice and every bite was delicious. The nan bread was freshly made to order and again served with friendly professionalism. At a cost of under £7.00 per head the lunch was super value. I really would struggle to find fault with anything and certainly intend to return to India Quay in the future."
    dined on 23/05/2014

  • "This restaurant was in the perfect location for the Hydro. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The starters were excellent and the mains good but too full for a pudding. Service was good and aware of the time we had until concert.the music even matched the concert we were going to -nice touch."
    dined on 18/05/2014

  • "We were attending a show at the hydro on wed. We went here first for a meal pre show and the service was excellent! The food was brilliant and the staff could not do enough for us! Even after the show we struggled to get a taxi and the staff in the restaurant made sure they booked one for us and that we were sorted to get back to out hotel! Excellent service and will definately be back again"

  • "We visited the Quay as a birthday treat.The staff were really friendly and the restaurant had a really good atmosphere and was really busy.Our food was fantastic and the portions were big.The sharing platter was excellent value.When we asked for the bill the head waiter came and asked who s birthday is was and we got 2 glasses of wine on the house. We will be back and would recommend to all."
    dined on 10/05/2014
  • "Lovely modern decor, and an enjoyable meal overall. Delicious crispy chicken pakoras were followed by a rarely bettered Lamb Rogan Josh. Cheese, chilli, and coriander naan was tasty (and certainly hot!), but soft and spongey. It was round too, and overall reminded me of a pizza base. Most naans are dry, crispy, and taper from a wider end to a point. Double scoops of Movenpick ice-cream rounded off a delicious meal. Would visit again, but would hesitate at ordering another baa served like that one. A shade or two over-priced, so three stars overall because of the slow service, and disappointing naan."
    dined on 10/05/2014
  • "The food was pretty good but did not enjoy my experience due to the level of heat within the restaurant which was uncomfortably hot. I asked if air con could be turned on and they assured me the fans were on but def were not."
    dined on 26/04/2014
  • "Service was first class with food very good, plenty of room at table unlike some other restaurants I have been to also located overlooking the squinty bridge which gives a nice outlook through the windows. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our time spent here."
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "I have eaten here before on a couple of occasions and always found it to be more than satisfactory. Food not the best I have tasted, but better than most. Went for the pre theatre, with the combo starter for two the talking point...it is more like a combo starter for THREE. Eat too much starter, so couldn't cope with all my main, therefore never had dessert. "
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "we really enjoyed our dining experience at india quay... starter was more than enough and main meal was excellent ... all food was pipimg hot .... we had a lovely time ... "

  • "Perfect for post evening concert dining at SECC/HYDRO/Clyde Auditorium (5 mins walk) Food & service both very high quality"
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "India Quay has a nice, broad view of the Clyde and Squinty Bridge, and is handy for the SECC, Hydro and South Side in general. But what makes it great is the service - I found the staff to be efficient, friendly and courteous. The food is tasty, arrives swiftly and hot, and is readily adapted to preferences and dietary requirements. The surroundings are clean and pleasant and prices are reasonable. The lemony refreshing hand cloths are a nice touch! I would recommend to anyone who likes Indian food and is in the area."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "Lovely food. Arrived quickly and nicely presented. Staff helpful and attentive. Hot towels for hands, good plus!"
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "Went to India Quay for a meal with my daughter before we went to the Hydro (very handy for the Hydro, SSEC...). Meal was lovely, well presented and staff were very friendly and helpful. Toilets spotless. Great value for money too - we had the pre theatre menu. Will be back."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "Decided to go local at the last minute, and booked the nearest place on toptable. Fabulous welcome - they remembered us passing the previous night (for good reasons I hope), and gave us a delightful table "a deux" in the window. An excellent menu, with plenty of variety and a number of dishes that were beyond the standard fare. The staff were all really personable and appeared to make time for you without being overbearing. Poppadums were served with a great fresh onion salad, mango chutney that didn't seem bulk manufactured and seemingly a home-made raita. The mixed starters were delicious; a variety of textures, flavours and content that set taste buds aflutter. Mains even better - recommended is Lamb Desi. You should try here."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Really great food... Nicest vegetarian option I've had for a long time. In my top 5 Indian restaurant across the uk... Wish I lived nearer! Lovely service, chatty waiter but not over bearing."
    dined on 19/03/2014
  • "We had the evening buffet. Good selection of choices, and all were very tasty. Waiters are helpful and friendly. Will be going back to try the A la Carte menu."
    dined on 18/03/2014
  • "The quality of food was very good. The setting is nice. The staff were lovely. My only gripe was that there was a table of 7 in the middle and one lady was so loud the whole place was looking at her. She even had an air horn! The management should really have said something to her."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "It was nice. Very tastey yum yum. I liked my meal, a lot. So did my lovely dining partner"
    dined on 11/03/2014
  • "We went for a meal before a concert, easy access for the hydro. The food was lovely and the service was quick without feeling rushed. When we finished our meal the manager asked if we could finish off at the reception area as he had a table book but more people had came along with the party and he needed our table. We were ready to leave anyway but he insisted that we had a drink on the house and offered us tea or coffee. In my opinion this was great customer service he was genuinely concered that he hadn't rushed us or offended us in any way. I will definitely be back !!!"
