the food was fantastic and there was lots of choice. the was a problem with the booking though and the had to move our time slot but they called the day before and that was fine however on the phone they asked for a deposit and this was a little annoying as they have already changed our time so i said i would prefer to give a deposit and the server said this is to secure your table (so it was not secure without a deposit?) but i didn’t get into it further and still said i didn’t want to give one. when we got there our table was very close to the door and we were next to a very louse large party and all the table were very close together at this side of the restaurant - i wonder if we gave a deposit if we would have been seated at a nicer table.

Lovely meal- lunch for two so we decided on a non vegetable Thali and three courses from main lunch menu.

Food fresh and tasty - breads lovely and light.

Would recommend for a meal in a trendy and lovely area If Glasgow

Covid measures first class by staff.

Fantastic food however service was a wee bit slow and the £45 per person tasting menu certainly isn’t the best value. However I’d certainly go back and the main thing is the food was delicious.

As ever, the Dhabba comes up trumps again. Our table had been booked for 8:30pm,but we called the restaurant to ask if there was any chance of an earlier slot. A quick check of their appointment book and there we were, seated inside at 7:55pm. Fantastic customer service as always. If you have never been to this restaurant, then I'd strongly advise that be rectified. Amazing food and brilliant service.

First time I had been to The Dhabba in quite a while and I was not disappointed. Started with the Bhel Puri from the Indian street food menu for something different, which was good. I then had the Laal Maas for my main which was excellent.
Staff were friendly and helpful at all times.

This place was a solid 5* for years.
Just not as good now.
Pretty poor value.
Great service still.
For Glasgow and a super vibrant Indian food scene I'd not rush back.

Best curry in Glasgow by an absolute mile. Service is exceptional. The manager and his team treat you like old friends and want you to delight in the experience.

I have been back 6 times now and had something different everytime.

Love the Dhabba

My husband and I were looking forward to our dining experience, but we were disappointed. The restaurant itself is very basic, staff were not very friendly, and the meal was very bland. I asked for a glass of tap water and got a glass with no ice, in a tumbler that had seen better days. !! We spent about £70 including wine, but was not worth it!

Great food choice not your usual Indian experience. Varied and unusual choices. We had the pre theatre menu which was great value. Service was excellent and attentive. We were there quite early on a Saturday afternoon so was very quiet but this did not spoil our experience.

The lamb wrapped in fried Roti was delicious! It was billed as a starter but was a generous portion.
