Found the Rogan Josh far too hot but full of flavour . Waiter very kindly cooled it off without any loss of flavour. Brilliant

Not very welcoming as we were early, many empty tables. Waiter spilling food at serving hatch and licking his fingers. Very unhygienic.

It was ok but not something I really enjoyed.
Didn't realise it was Halal meat as I don't agree with the way they are killed.
Over priced really for what it was

Easily the best Indian in Glasgow.
Super nice people and Ali and the staff can't do enough for you.
You know where you have a favourite Indian for a while then the chef changes or they change hands?
Not here. Consistent every time.
Just check out all their awards on the walls.
And they are really good to the homeless as well.
5/5

My husband and I have visited Charcoals a number of times. Either just the two of us or with very good friends. The service is always to a high standard and the food is absolutely fantastic!

The price for the same set menu has gone up as December. The quantity of food was very poor compared to other experiences. Barely any chicken pakora and barely any in either main meal. Mostly sauce and chicken wasn’t very good at all. Very disappointing.

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!

Haven’t eaten here for nearly a year. I must say the food was wonderful, even better than before and I thought that to be impossible. A brilliant dining experience and I will be returning soon. Excellent!
