Evening spoiled by the table being next to the door and a constant draft. Not helped by the door not closing properly most of the time.

Got seated very and drinks ordered very quickly.
Soon we had popadoms and pickle tray brought to our table and our orders were taken.
Food was really tasty and we were given 2 additional dishes to try for free, all really tasty.
This is our second time here and will be back when next in Glasgow!

Charcoals is a consistent favourite of ours however our food wasn’t the best on Xmas eve. Chips were inedible, really bad, had to send them back. Curries were fantastic as always, service great. Table at the door was freezing, we sat with our coats on. Due to sanitising etc we didn’t want to move from table to table but experience on a whole was not as good as usual. When bill arrived, we asked if we could put tip on, guy actually put an amount in, ie without asking. As it was what I was going to pay anyway I never said anything, didn’t want to be unduly picky (we also found it quite funny) but it was a bit presumptuous. Charcoals is still our favourite place in town and there have been a lot of challenges lately.

Great food, service and adherence to coronavirus rules, highly recommend this place. Shame it was quiet when we went in (Monday lunchtime) as it deserves better - I've been in for work lunches before and it's been mobbed!

We have been going into Charcoals on and off for a number of years, by no means a regular as we don't live in Glasgow, unfortunately standards seem to have dropped dramatically in terms of cleanliness within the restaurant and especially on the stairs leading to the toilets and the actual toilets themselves. Had I visited the toilets before eating my meal we would probably have left there and then as those first impressions would have put me off. Whilst they had screens up between the tables but the tables themselves were sticky to touch and didn't feel particularly clean..

The food was fine, I had the Chicken Madras whilst my wife had the Chicken Tikka Chasni and both meals were very good.

In summary the food was good but the restaurant, stairs and toilets are sadly in need of a makeover, whilst a deep clean in all areas would undoubtedly help.

Unfortunately we wont return until the toilets have been upgraded which is dissapointing.

Food in general was as usual very good, however, I ordered a “special chapatti” and it was the worst I’ve ever had, anywhere. It was very akin to a piece of cardboard dipped in fat, absolutely inedible. I did not complain as I did not want to upset the ambience of an otherwise enjoyable night out with friends.
