As most my readers know my favourite Indian restaurant in Glasgow, is Charcoals and I have been here many times and even filmed inside.

Tonight I was treating my dad to dinner, and I decided to take him here. My dad is a big fan of Indian food, and he has never been here so it was time to introduce Charcoals to him.

The Food…

Starter

Onion Baji (GF) £3.25
Finally Spiced onions mixed with spicy gram flour, spices and deep fried

I have had these a long time ago, plus I knew you got two so I thought I would share a starter with my dad.

These were perfect, flavour, texture and just YUM!!! I could have easily had more of this but I didn’t as I had the main course coming.

My dad said these were the best he has had.

Main Course

Butter Chicken (GF) £9.95 & Basmati Fried Rice (GF) £2.75
Invented in Delhi in 1970’s, mildly spiced and slightly sweet and accessible to all tastes.

I have had this before, and it was thanks to Charcoals that this is now one of my favs to order.

This was really nice, flavours, and the chicken was very very tender it was a perfect mouthful each time.

Charcoals are still my #1 Indian restaurant in Glasgow.

Yip another visit, and I couldn’t wait as I needed another Charcoals fix.

For me this is my all time favourite Indian restaurant, every visit the service is 10/10 and also the food is bursting with flavour and amazingly tasty.

The Food…

Starter

Chai Tea

Not really a starter but I did order it when I went in, rather than my normal cola as I wanted to give this tea a shot.

Meat Samosa £3.25
Lamb minced and spices rolled in a pastry

Well there would be a photo here but I was hungry and guess what? I forgot to take it (sorry)

Anyway……I would normally go for the vegetable samosa, but today I thought lets try the meat one. Lamb for me is hit and miss, some dishes i like it, some I don’t but I wanted to be different today.

This was so so good, and it was that good I visited here 3 days later for my works night out and had this again.

Main Course

Charcoals Goldie £9.95 & Peshwari Naan £3.50
7 Lentils cooked together in chefs special spices, chicken or lamb.

This is my all time favourite naan, I love the flavour and it works well with nearly every dish.

I had this dish ages ago and thought lets have it again, as I remember I really liked it so hopefully it was the same today.

This was a little spicy but just a little kick nothing major, and wow the flavours were amazing. Its very hard to describe, but all I can say is mmmmm and this with the naan worked very well.

Love Indian food? then you need to take a visit here!!! thats all I can say as its always 10/10 for me here.

Back again at one of my favourite Indian Restaurants in Glasgow, and this time I would have something other than my normal dishes.

As always I was welcomed and shown to my table, which today was closer to the window so I had a nice view.

Yes I did stick to ordering something different so here is what I thought.

The Food…

Starter

Vegetable Samonsa £2.95
Vegetables and spices rolled in a pastry.

As soon as this was on the table the smell instantly hit me and my mouth started to water, so now time to see what it was like.

This was a perfect size for a starter, and was packed with flavour.

If your a fan of samosa and like a little extra kick of spice, then you will like this.

This is a starter I would order again.

Main Course

Kofta Curry £9.95
Meatballs cooked in smooth spicy sauces


As my side to this dish I ordered chapati as I felt a naan would be too much.

I have had this dish at another restaurant and really liked it, so I thought lets see how here does it.

This for me was a little too spicy, don’t get me wrong it was very nice but for my palate it had too much of a kick (I normally do Korma so thats my heat level). Putting that aside the flavours were very nice, and very tasty.

Overall

As always here I have a nice relaxing time, and the food is always amazing. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough, and can promise you that you will always get good service and good food every time you visit.

If your a fan of Indian food then do check this place out.
