Food was incredibly delicious, staff pleasant and knowledgeable. My only complaint was that the restaurant is very noisy and the lighting is quite bright, but those things didn’t spoil the delicious food. Thank you

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.
The staff were attentive and friendly - definitely will be back next time I'm in Glasgow!

The food was delicious, beautifully presented and piping hot. The waiter was knowledgeable when discussing dishes and offered a recommendation which we took - the lamb shank - it was superb. The only reason I've not given 5 stars is because we waited so long to be asked for our drinks order, I had to eventually ask a waiter to take it.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my sons graduation. The food and the service were both first class. The waiter appreciated that this was a special occasion and went out of his way to make it so.
I would fully recommend this restaurant and we will definitely be back.

This is the best curry in Glasgow.The food is excellent and the staff very friendly.The only reason I did not give top marks for service is that I did have to ask for a knife and fork for my main course.A small point which in no way spoiled my night but a little more basic attention.Finally on occasion as this is a popular Indian restaurant it can be a little crowded at the doorway when awaiting your table.This is a lovely restaurant and in no way should feel like queueing for an ice cream at the ice cream van.Again these are small points.This is a great restaurant

The restaurant is well decorated, the staff are polite and efficient but the food is at best
ordinary and very expensive, I've seen other posts about cost and the replies been because it's North Indian we are more expensive, now can someone tell me why chicken no doubt purchased in Glasgow area and spices which are available in lots of continental stores suddenly become very expensive in the Dhabba

Fantastic service as always but felt the menu was more limited than it used to be. That said, the food we had was great but put down to 4* on options.

I like to have a curry on a sinday, so it was completely empty restaurant, so no atmosphere, food was average and sevice was shared by every waiter in the premises.

Major disappointment was that you could not actually order a real 'Dhabba'-dish, so the name is a bit misleading. Meals are OK, but not outstanding. Price for value is there a bit on the high end. Have been to better Indian restaurants with much more reasonable prices.
