Fantastic food plus fantastic service. Probably the best curry I’ve had. No waiting and help choosing meals for the kids which they loved. Can’t recommend this place or the staff enough. My kids are insisting on a return visit as soon as we are back in Glasgow and I will be only too happy to return. Thank you Charcoal for a great experience!

First visit in a while due to covid and was not disappointed at new restaurant in the Merchant City area, was able to book easily online, on arrival service was welcoming and food as usual was delicious, hope to be back again soon.

Food was nice enough but the place could do with a good clean.
Toilets were terrible.

Ali and team were amazing! We’ve been traveling across the UK over the past 4 weeks and the food and service were the best we’ve had thus far. Great flavor and right amount of spice!

We where a group of friends visiting this place for the first time. The restaurant looks really really small and when we entered the others in our group said “ are you serious u booked here”
Then the smells of the glorious food took over our mind. We booked for 5.15. Which we got seated straight away. Drinks where on table with spiced onions abs popadoms on table within 5 mins. Starters served pretty much instantly and all scalding hot. Tasty and fresh food. Very quick service and always wait staff available for another drink or for anything else.

I would highly recommend for any occasion. The food is quality and tasty. Never had an Indian as good as this one. Friendly staff. Portions are great and the food is fresh. Doesn’t taste like the reheated slop we have had at other restaurants.

Deffo recommend a meal at Charcoal!

The best Indian restaurant in Scotland and the UK as proven by numerous awards it has won.

The food is simply superb, the service is brilliant, The staff and Muhammed Sultan really do ensure that you enjoy your dining experience and you aren't treated just as another customer but as a guest.

Well worth a visit and you will truly enjoy the food in Charcoals

Charcoals is quite a small restaurant and easy to walk past, but is well worth a visit. This is my second visit this summer.

The waiter was efficient and friendly, but we felt a bit rushed to make our order and when clearing the table after each course. However there was a good gap between courses and we didn’t feel rushed to finish and leave.

The food standard on both our visits was excellent, with freshly prepared, good quality food that tasted amazing. Only slightly let down on this visit by an over cooked portion of chicken pakora for a starter. Otherwise excellent.

Considering this is a city centre restaurant, it serves excellent food at a reasonable price and will happily visit again.

Been going to Charcoals for years approximately every 2 months with a few friends. We dont spend a fortune, just lunch but every single time we go back the very warm welcome is the same. Fantastic food, service and great lunch menu value. Fully recommended.

14 year old daughter, myself and my younger brother went here for dinner last night. The waiters were attentive and brought extra dips and all the food tasted amazing. Very reasonably priced which was a huge bonus and have recommended it to a lot of people so far. Will definitely be back next time I’m in the city!
