Chicken Tikka Meal
Marinated tandoori chicken served with fresh salad, rice and sauce
Food was delicious and service was friendly and efficient. Will definitely return.
We have dined at Koolba in the Merchant City many times and have tried different dishes, the food has been delicious every time. The staff are very friendly and efficient, it’s very reasonably priced and value for money! I would definitely recommend this restaurant all day long, if you are looking for good quality Indian food
Lovely meal from the 3 course lunch menu, would recommend to anyone.
Had a lovely meal and afternoon in Koolba. Waitresses were attentive and helpful throughout. Food was delicious, highly recommend dining here!
Starters were amazing, best Indian sharing platter I’ve ever had and would come back just for them!
The mains were a real let down, no real depth to the sauces and we had to send the sea bass curry back, in fairness the staff dealt with our disappointment without a fuss and credit to them for their overall service especially given the tough environment
Garlic nann out of this world, make sure you get it well done though!
Was prepared to spend a bit more time normal but do think they have pushed the prices to the top end
Fantastic time here. Food was outstanding as were the staff. Highly recommend this place. 10/10
Excellent food , fab restaurant and excellent customer service
Excellent meal and good service lacking atmosphere as no background music but this is due to current covid situation
Great food and nice surroundings. One of the best Indian restaurants in Glasgow.
Had another fantastic meal would recommend the tandoori monkfish
the meal was delicious and well priced. staff are lovely and very attentive. highly recommend this restaurant.
My most favourite Indian restaurant. We go for every occasion
First time back in since lockdown lifted. Felt very safe cos of COVID-19 changes. Food, drink & staff as great as usual.
Meal was nice. Small starters. Place was empty no atmosphere.
Amazing food amazing service one of the most underrated restaurant in Glasgow
Great service and great food, outstanding value , will be back.
Great place ,Moorish decor lovely staff & food , definitely good value for what you experience.
The food is amazing. The best Indian in Glasgow in my opinion. Love the South Indian Garlic Chilli sea bass curry with coconut rice. Beautiful. Had popadums and chutney and spiced onions for starter. Even the garlic nan was so light. It is pricey but, in my opinion, worth every penny. Service was very good also.
Outstanding as usual, best curry in Glasgow.......
Well organised, great staff and great food will definitely be going back
To celebrate our wedding anniversary we decided to have lunch in our favourite Indian restaurant, the Koolba, located in Glasgow’s Merchant City. Once again the food was outstanding and the staff were attentive as always. Received a lovely surprise, a large slice of chocolate cake from the staff to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary. Looking forward to going back.
All aspects of the meal and service were excellent. Lovely food, with attentive service but not at all obtrusive. In these times of "the virus" attention to hygiene was first rate. Strongly recommended.
Great food as always and currently in the eat out to help out scheme
It was nice enough in general, although quite expensive for the portion size that is given. There was quite a draft due to there being a door that is always left open (this would be fine in summer, but it was 8pm in September so it wasn’t really suitable). The restaurant itself looks lovely and authentic to its credit.
Lovely food and nice staff. Good value having the pre theatre.
The food is absolutely delicious, staff were friendly and all restrictions in place to feel safe whilst dining. Will definitely be back!
Food was amazing best curry I have had in a while and the staff where great when asking them about the menu.
Amazing food, and service was fab. Would recommend it
Food was brilliant. The skewers of grilled meat were super fresh and tasty. The vegetable saag was one of the best non meat curries I’ve tasted. Starters, breads and rice all very good. Staff were lovely as well.
Honestly some of the best Indian food I’ve had in a long time. Everything we ordered was so tasty (poppadoms & dips, butter chicken, chicken tikka masala see, rice & naan). Service was also really good.
Only negative was there was no lunchtime menu available during the Eat Out to Help Out campaign, which I thought was a bit disappointing. Even with the £20 discount it was quite a pricey lunch.
Had not been in for a while but no worries as service and food still as good along with great staff,will be back
We were a party of 5 all first time at KoolBa and we really enjoyed it. The waitress was so nice and friendly with great service. Really good selection of dishes to choose from and we were very happy with our choices. Will definitely be back
Some of the best Indian/Persian meals anywhere and the staff are so friendly.
My wife & I stayed in Glasgow for the Bank Holiday weekend and KoolBa was on our “must visit” places. They did not disappoint. Their vegetable pakora was light and crunchy, and their mixed vegetable dopiaza was flavoursome & delicious. My wife loved her Tikka Massala too.
KoolBa never disappoint. They serve the best Indian food in Glasgow.
Brilliant as usual. I have missed coming here over lockdown and was still a bit hesitant to venture out. However this wonderful Indian/Persian was all sorted to make the experience as safe and enjoyable for all. Nicely full but not over packed, the staff were all masked up and the food was amazing as usual. It was a real boost to get out and really heartening to see that all of the Merchant City is putting the safety of customers first. Can't wait to go back!
As a regular at Koolba I couldn’t wait to visit again after lockdown. I wasn’t disappointed - food amazing as always and customer service second to none. I feel safe and well looked after.
First meal out since lockdown and Koolba was an excellent choice
Covid ready and great staff
Food was excellent
Fabulous meal as usual service good as always very popular place I would certainly recommend
Great service received upon arrival and was taken straight to our table. orders were taken fast and food arrived quick even though we were told there might be a wait. Had the Persian mixed kebab platter and it was just perfect. Food was piping hot and we were well taken care of by servers. The first time trying here and definitely will be back.
The food was good but the service was not covid friendly in the slightest.
First of all, the staff had their masks hanging below their noses and on occasion below their mouth. They would have been as well just not wearing one. Our waitress touched our poppadoms with her bare hand and regularly was close to dipping her tie in the food. Multiple times members of staff leaned across us, social distancing was not even a consideration. A one way system is in place which no one, including the staff, follow. The tables were filled as usual, not socially distanced as they should have been. The toilets were a disgrace, clearly these were not being monitored and cleaned regularly. Taking all of this into consideration we did not leave a tip, the waitress noticed this and said nothing other than ‘would you like a receipt’ then walked away from the table with no other pleasantries.
We are regular customers to Koolba but unfortunately this visit has left us with a bad taste.
thanks for your visit, We have invested a lot of time & money in our restaurant to follow the Government guideline for Covid-19 code of working, we have clearly shown & following social distance and hygiene steps require and we have photographic proof of it. therefore we reject your claim here and if you so worried about Covid-19 issues try to dining in your own kitchen and don't try to destroy hard working people jobs out there.
