    Whilst visiting Glasgow for a long weekend we were lucky enough to get a table at Madha. The food was exquisite and the service was exceptional. The staff were very attentive but not overly so. I would definitely eat here again when in the city and would highly recommend to friends and family.

    Probably the best Indian meal I have had in the UK. Stumbled in thinking we were going to have a standard 'British' Indian meal, and came away having had authentic, fabulous southern Indian cuisine. The food was interesting, well prepared and soooo very tasty and the service was impeccable. I've never had a dosa, and though i was intent on having a naan bread, we ending up ordering both, so i could try something new. The dosa was so tasty (and gluten-free, a bonus!), I hardly ate the naan. The starters were sublime (we had chicken, pankaj pyaz (onion bhaji-like). I had a paneer dish that was rich, aromatic and deeply satisfying. Sadly I was so full I had no room to try the desserts. Can't wait to go back!

    Friday night two weeks before Christmas. Restaurant busy but not full. Drinks served fairly quickly then a 25 minute wait to order food. Pickle tray and popadoms arrived promptly. Followed about 15 minutes later by our food. Or that should say my husbands curry but no rice, my sauce but wrong main. After trying three times to give me lamb chops that I didn’t order another waiter came and told them to take everything away. Another 15 minutes and correct food arrived. Husbands curry had obviously been sat in the kitchen as it was lukewarm. Otherwise can’t fault the food. Nobody asked us if we wanted more drinks. We did but could not attract anyone’s attention and gave up. After the bill had been paid and we were putting our coats on we were offered coffee or dessert on the house. Fortunately Glasgow has many good Indian restaurants as we won’t be rushing back to this one.

    Had been recently and the food was fantastic, although we were forgotten for half an hour when it came to seeing the dessert menu. So I suggested going again, since the food was so good. Service was even worse this time round with a wait of over an hour for starters. Didn’t wait around for the dessert menu this time and still had to go to the front to get our bill. Won’t be back, which is a shame as the food is excellent.

    The food was very good (and spicy!), people were very friendly... But it felt as if they were forgotten us. Apero was served, and immediately the starters. Then, after 3/4h the rest. We bought a bottle of wine and grace to our observation skills, we've found out that they were serving us not a whole bottle, but a bottle which was already opened and missed a full glas... After diner we've asked for a taxi. One or another friend of the restaurant picked us up and charged us the double of the price we've paid when we were arriving...

    We have been to the Madha before and have always been very happy! This time was no exception. The service was wonderful and attentive, and the owner made great recommendations. The food was delicious as always, the perfect amount (almost too much!). This is not like the standard Indian takeaways you can find all over Glasgow, the food is much more diverse and make with passion. I can only recommend going.

    Great food and service but getting a little bit pricey. Enjoyed a lovely meal here recently, the food is excellent and the service is very good. Joseph looks after you very well. I would have to say it is getting quite pricey though so be aware. I've no doubt I'll be back but maybe only on a special occasion.

    I had read and heard good things about Mahda. I was not disappointed. The menu offered a wide variety of dishes, all of which sounded so tasty that it made the choice very difficult. I have never come across such a varied Indian menu, with both northern and southern dishes on offer. I chose a Keralan chicken stew with vegetables which was outstanding. And I'm 57 and have been to many, many Indian restaurants. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The whole experience was wonderful. Go!

    Terrific find just by our digs. Host Joseph and his team took very good care of us. They are passionate regarding their business and food and their confidence in their menu is justified. Joseph suggested we go off-piste menu wise and, based upon our general tastes, devised starters and main courses that were really delicious. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

    Excellent restaurant particularly for group looking for vegan /vegetarian options. Excellent knowledgeable attentive staff. Food really nice with lot of different dishes from both North and South India. Quiet on Saturday afternoon so atmosphere slightly lacking but I am sure this is not the case at night. Would certainly recommend.

    Based on the many good reviews we had such high hopes for this place - but were left hugely disappointed by the food. We both ordered soups to start, expecting something sumptuous. But both were thin and watery. (The Mukkavan soup had hardly any seafood in it, and the Rasam had the consistency of a curry cup-a-soup.) The mains were also disappointing (both off the Chicken part of the menu) with runny sauces that had a harsh spicy taste but hardly any depth of flavour. Despite ordering very different dishes (with supposedly very different ingredients), they both tasted almost identical. The service was good but all in all, this was a massive let down. At £46 for 2 soups, 2 mains, bread, and 2 pints of Kingfisher, it wasn't too pricey but we could have spent half that on a carry out from our local Indian (in fact, ANY local Indian) and enjoyed it a hundred times as much.
