Well where do I start. Met Ali on our way in and I said Hi Ali and was greeted like a brother.
My wife and I have been going to Charcoals for a long time now and its always been great and never been disappointed. So I decided to take a few friends, we are all retired firefighters well they were so glad that I did. Ali looked after us and he was superb as usual may I say.
We choose the pre theatre menu but one of our party preferred a certain dish and it was provided as part of the pre theatre.
The food was out of this world. Its got to be up there with some of the best. Ali left before we could thank him but the rest of the staff looked after us until we left. Great visit and cant wait to go back. Please give it a try.

A cafe style Indian. Pretty good service but the food was nothing to write home about. It was fine but there are many good places in Glasgow.

Lamb chops were not cooked properly and my husband chipped his tooth trying to eat them . Chicken tikka was dry and bland and the sauce I ordered was tasteless apart from only getting about four spoonfuls and got charged extra for it!

The four people that we had sitting next to us were way to loud. Myself and my husband found it hard to hear ourselves talk, I was out for my birthday and ended up very poor.

I visited with my family but I was extremely disappointed when I was told that they do not have high chairs for babies. My excited 8 month old baby basically had no place to sit therefore I had to hold him which totally ruined my meal which could have been a good one as the food actually tasted quite nice. It's the first restaurant I've ever been to who dont offer this. I mean do they not want children in their restaurant?????? Extremely disappointed to say the least

Charcoals was up to its usual excellent standards in every way service,food and friendliness.
This is a great little indian restaurant near the bottom of Renfield Street,never varies from its high standards.
If you like a good curry this is the place,on the right hand side walking up Renfield Street.

This is a small and very busy restaurant, I would recommend booking. First off the food is superb, however we weren't made aware card machine wasn't working until we went to pay the bill, thankfully had enough cash to avoid an embarrassing situation! Need that info when being seated please!
Also there is a 10% service charge to be aware of.

Tiny place with lots of character. The papadums were some of the best that I had ever had- as were the pickled vegetables that they were served with! Veggie pakora was so-so, and my fiance loved the Chicken Tikka and samosas.
