My Top 8 Best Indian Restaurants in Glasgow

I got asked recently “what’s the best Indian restaurant in Glasgow?” and to be honest you cant really have one best. The reason I am saying this is that all the Indian restaurants anywhere can be different styles, different presentations and prepared in the style of the region they are from.

I have tried many in Glasgow, and still have many to try but from the ones I have tried I narrowed them down to my top 8 which was very difficult.

Some of these I am linking to when I was invited as this was how I was introduced to them, but please do remember it is a 100% honest review of the night and this is how I would like you to be introduced to them.

I have also gone back to the invited ones, without them knowing and ate again as you cant always judge on an invite….you have to judge when its a normal night….and the service, food etc for these restaurants below have always been good….I just didn’t blog about it as I was wanting to enjoy the company I was with and have a non blogging night.

If I have gone back to them do a wee search and check out my more up to date reviews.

The reasons these are in my top 8 are due to the following reasons

  • Good service
  • Good portion sizes
  • Great quality food
  • Good prices / Value for money
  • A good overall experience

Please note these are not in any order, so do check them all out. If you have tried these restaurants please let me know what you thought in the comments, or on the Instagram post.
