Excellent service tasty food but my only complaint is that the food was lukewarm not hot. Disappointed really
Lovely meal, polite and attentive staff and would definitely return.
Superb food! So fresh and delicious ! Can’t wait to return
Fabulous food and service. Our go to place for a curry!
Sorry to say, this visit was not up to Balbirs normal high standard.
The waiters questioned our choice of sauce and when serving the meal told us that we couldn’t have an extra sauce,even though we had asked for this to be added to the bill.
The pakora was lukewarm and possibly re-heated. The portions were much smaller in general.
Putting the pakora sauce bowl on the same plate as the pakora was a bit of a ruse to disguise the amount of portions on the plate.
Sad to say, we see a huge decline in all in portion sizes and presentation.
It’s always been a favourite place for our friends and us to meet up and have a treat. Sadly,not this time!
Back again. Warm welcome and excellent food. Nice staff always make the difference.
The start of our visit to restaurant was good then it all went down hill from there , a couple of things about the service and food made us think we won’t be coming back.
My friend ordered a sizzler dish and the chicken came out cold, staff advised that the reason for this was, the meal was sitting out waiting for the other meals for the table - this must have been for some time for it to be cold! We also waited over 45 minutes for coffee, which was also cold, this must have been sitting out as well and we had to ask twice where this was.
I believe the focus of the restaurant is their delivery/take away service.
Superb Indian cuisine in the west end of Glasgow. Highly recommended.
another first class meal
the chef never disappoints
Great food (although could have been warmer) and great service.
Happy to recommend.
Will definitely be back. The food was delicious and the service was spot on.
Reasonable prices and a lovely ambient restaurant.
Fabulous. Haven’t eaten there for a while but didn’t disappoint. Introduced my friends to their Goanese Fish Curry. Absolutely amazing. Will go back soon.
Balbirs is one of our favourite resturaunts to eat. Amazing service as always and the food is outstanding. Would highly recommend. Katie
Wonderful authentic Indian cuisine, tastes like home cooked. Best Indian in Glasgow.
Usual high standard. Lovely fresh flavours and great service
Staff are always very welcoming nothing is ever too much bother for them
Def be back
Food is to “die” for absolutely delicious, very friendly staff who ate not overly attentive. Wine list that has something for everyone, is a must when you are in the west end of Glasgow. Would recommend to anyone.
Lovley food , very friendly staff 3rd visit we will return again .
First class service. Attention to detail. Would recommend balbirs for great family gathering.
The restaurant is nicely decorated. It was quite busy and has a good atmosphere. The staff were very good, attentive and polite. Our party of four all thought the food was lovely , My favourite was the lamb keema, another favourite was the chicken methi. Great value as we had a 5pm deal. I would highly recommend and will return
Was ill after my meal with an very upset stomach. The food was nice at the time but about 20 minutes after I was ill. The staff were nice enough but a large group of young boys were sat beside us and were very nosy spoiling our quiet romantic date night. Also no cocktails served on a Saturday night
I am a regular visitor to Balbirs and always enjoy their food - a few new meals on the menu this time - we tried two of them and they were very good.
Staff extremely helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Food excellent as always
Very pleasant evening slight disappointment that some dishes unavailable due to impending closure for a couple of weeks but enjoyed the prawns achari
The attention to details was very nice. The food is wonderful and the service is very personal.
Food was delicious, not your typical Indian cuisine, sauces were lighter. Lovely restaurant, great service and good value for money.
Lovely food staff very welcoming.definately be back
Absolutely fabulous as always, just gets better each time
Food is always terrific, great customer service... the team are always very attentive.
Brilliant evening with my family - food as always fantastic
Good variety of dishes on the menu. Food was fresh and delicious.
We have dined in Balbirs on a number of occasions and it remains one of our favourite Indian restaurants in the city. The food is excellent and the staff are not only professional and efficient but friendly and with a sense of humour too.
Well worth a visit.
Having dined previously this visit was very disappointing. The food was reasonable, although not outstanding but the service was lacklustre and slow. Having your dinner abruptly dumped in front of you before the server quickly makes an exit (this happened for every course) didn’t improve on the long wait to order or the even longer wait to try and get the bill. The service we received was minimal and certainly not what we considered acceptable for the price you’re paying.
We have been dining at Balbirs at least once a month since it opened and not had a bad meal yet.
Wonderful food. Well prepared and presented. Service excellent. Smart and courteous staff. A superb dining experience.
Lovely authentic Indian food. Always enjoy the quality of food and service.
Wonderful restaurant with attentive staff. The food was very well prepared and tasty.
Food and service were very good.
I was extremely disappointed regarding the wine.
I ordered the £30 Rioja and was told the wine list was being changed and I was given a different Rioja.
Wine was fine, but on receiving the bill it was listed at £41.
I did not complain, nor did I leave the £10 tip I would have.
Fantastic food, great service and a lovely atmosphere. Will be back before long. Thanks
Brilliant food and service. Highly recommend. Handy location for underground
