Enjoyed our meal and would personally rate the restaurant as a ‘good’ Indian restaurant!
Would I travel out of the city centre to visit I’m not too sure as there are many comparable Indian restaurants in the city.

Second time I have eaten in the restaurant and the food has always been delicious. The staff are very friendly and knowledgable regarding the dishes and made some really nice recommendations. Service is timely and from being seated to having our order taken we waited no longer than 5 minutes. I will definitely be making this a regular place to eat.

This was our first visit and I was very pleased with the whole visit. Staff were very friendly and food was very tasty, hot and well presented. Drinks were a tad on the expensive side but overall it was a great dining experience.

Family birthday and we all enjoyed the experience at Nakodar. This has become our favourite Asian dining restaurant - a popular destination on the Dennistoun Strip.

I got my confirmation that I had a table for 2 from open table.and when we got there they said we didn't have a table and one of the waitresses was quite rude to us . We spoke to the manager and complained . He was quite helpful but we got turned away after travelling for half an hour to get there . We won't be back to the nakador .I have already left a review on the nakador website .

This place reminded me of an episode of fawlty towers due to the fact that staff where constantly getting orders mixed up and taking them to wrong tables,the food was also cold when eventually arrived.Be prapered for anyone who decides to go here as the set menu doesn’t have everything on it ie.dessert etc.felt bit uncomfortable with waiter as persistently coming back and forth to table.Only wish Basil was there to whack him on head with spoon as he was a total pest .Certainly won’t be returning as a trip to McDonald’s may have been more appealing!

Waited 40 min for our table even though we had booked,restaurant was cold and service was not it’s usual standard,I got lamb chops which I always do but just too much fat in them. We will give this restaurant another try as it is not normally like this.

Been to the Nakodar several times with my husband and the food and service is always outstanding. Booked a table for Christmas Eve and took my sister and her fiancée with us. This was their first time and they thoroughly enjoyed it. As always the food was delicious and the staff attentive and cheerful. Can't wait for our next visit!

Interesting use of local ingredients in an inventive Indian menu. There was an excellent choice for the vegan in our party and staff were able to double check quickly when not clear. A great mix of meat, fish and veg dishes. Very tasty without being too spicy hot. The staff were delightful, attentive but without being obtrusive. Travelled by train across Glasgow and it was easy to get too from local station, so no need for nominated driver. Good Indian beers on tap. I would recommend the Nakodar highly for all tastes - meat and fish eaters, vegans and vegetarians.

Had to try it as heard good comments . Booked table for 2 on Sunday - got date crashed by teenage daughter - she got fitted in no problem. Food amazing. staff nice , only problem was the hovering staff at tables eager to take plates away - found this annoying ! But would definitely go back 😁
