Swadish (Merchant City, Glasgow) : Review

V: 12th December 2020


Today was the first day back for all restaurants after the tier here was lowered, which was great for all of the shops restaurants etc

I booked a table and already knew what I would be ordering.

Todays Order

I wanted to try 2 dishes I had never had here before, and thats exactly what I did.

Remember to check out either my previous blogs posts or my VLOGs on Swadish, as Swadish is one of my top places to eat.

My Drink

A Swadish Christmas Mocktail

Unfortunately I cant remember how much this is, but when I find out I will update this post. I also wont say what was in this as it means you have to go and try it!

I will tell you one part…it did have cinnamon in it and wow this was a really tasty mocktail.

When you visit you have to ask for one of these…or two.

The Food

Coconut Broth Mussels £7.50
Scottish Mussels, Green Curried Broth, Spiced Bread.

Mussels are one of those dishes that they are either done really bad or really good, there is never an in-between and thats with either just salt and vinegar or a lovely sauce.

On arrival the presentation was really good, and they smelled as good as they looked.

I dug right in….

These were cooked to perfection and the broth had a lovely flavour, there was no need for extra salt or anything it was really good!!!!!

Main Course

Delhi’s Butter Chicken £13.00
Tender Chicken in rich and silky Tomato Sauce, Brown Onions, Dried Fenugreek, Garam Masala

When I was with my ex this year we followed one of Ajay’s recipes for this, and it turned out very good so today I thought I would order it and see how it was.

How good does this look? now it was tasting time.

This was very creamy, tender chicken and a really really good flavour. I would easily have this again….but next visit I will try something different again 🙂

Was it as good as the one my ex and I made? well that info I will never tell :p

dessert

Warm Gulab Jamun £6.00
A sweet spongy balls made of milk, Topped with Berry Compote

I love Gulab Jamun, and its a fav for me to always end my meal on….well thats if there is still room for a dessert.

How good does this look, and with the ice cream and compote? hmmm never tried it with that before so this would be interesting.

WOW this really worked well!!! I could have easily had another 2 helpings of this!

Cant wait to have this again on my next visit.

Swadish (Merchant City, Glasgow) : Review

V: 3rd October 2020


With my appetite slowly returning, I decided to take a visit to one of my favorite restaurants Swadish.

I have been here a few times and tried their Heat & Eat, which if you havent check out here VIEW as at the time I am posting this there is a mini lockdown for restaurants so check it out for a great take away!!.

I have never had a bad meal here, everything has always been very tasty and extremely morish.

Todays Order

As I said I wasnt too hungry but I wanted to try and see what I could eat, as there were 3 dishes I wanted to try.

The Food

Crispy Kale Bhajis £4.50
Battered Kale, Onions, Gram Flour, Minted Yoghurt.

This is something I would have never ordered, but today I wanted to give it a try.

On arrival this looked very nice, and also the smell was really good to. I am glad I did order this as it was nice and crispy with an amazing taste, everything worked really well.

This was a really good dish, the sauce, kale, crispness was really really nice.

If like me this is something you would skip, don’t!! trust me you will really like this.

Main Course

Butter Chicken Naanwich £7.00
Finger licking chicken marinated in lemon, lots of butter and tangy spices, toped with a caramelised onions and spicy tomato salsa.

I follow Swadish on Instagram, and this popped up a few times and really tickled my tastebuds so I knew I had to order this when I visited.

On arrival this was a big portion, and visually looked really nice and the smell mmmm my mouth started to water.

The first bit through to the last bite were just perfect, the flavours of everything and the textures really it was a perfect mouthful every time.

This is something I would 100% order again.

Side

Poppadom Nachos £5.50

This sounded interesting, as I have never had or heard of Poppadom Nachos before so I had to order and see what it was like.

On arrival this looked really interesting, and I couldnt wait to dig in and try it.

WOW this was so good, it was a modern Indian take on a classic and it worked 100%. The sauces, the salsa and poppadoms worked really well together.

You need to order this!!!

Tonight I tried dishes I might not have ordered, and I am so glad I did as now I can recommend them to you to try as they will blow your mind!

I highly recommend everything I had tonight, and in my previous reviews and if you havent visited Swadish before then you need to add it to your place to visit as it will become your new favourite place for dinner.

Swadish 5 Course Heat and Eat meal for 2 (Glasgow, Merchant City) : Review

GIFTED

Swadish is back woohoo!!!

I have been keeping an eye on when Swadish were going to do a takeaway, and they are now doing a great one.⠀

They gifted me a 5-course Heat and Eat for 2 meal, and I couldn’t wait to dig in and start eating.⠀

With the takeaway you get instructions on how to heat each item, and for how long so that they taste great.

Nibbles

POPPADOMS

These poppadoms were lovely and crispy, and had a great flavour.

They worked extremely well with the dips and spiced onions.⠀

Crispy Battered Kale

Wow now this was my first time trying Kale, and I think I am in love.

This was so nice and super moreish.⠀

I cant wait to get this again.

Spiced Onions

You can’t go wrong with spiced onions, these were mega YUM!!!!!⠀

Starters

Tomato Shorba (Soup)

I am not a soup fan, but wow this was very tasty, really nice flavours….and if you normally don’t like tomato soup you would love this.⠀

Chicken Chat (Wings)

The chicken meat was very tender, and had a nice flavour….finger licking good as they say.

Onion & Potato Bhaji 

I am becoming a big fan of Onion Bahji and mmmm these were so so so so good!!!!!!!!

Main Course

As you have seen from above the starters were supper mouth wattering

I couldn’t wait to dig in to the mains, as they all looked and smelled amazing.

Chicken Tikka Masala

The chicken was very tender, and melted in my mouth.

The sauce was nice and creamy and had an amazing flavour.

Lamb Karahi

I am not a massive Lamb fan, its something I have to be in the mood for but I opted for this dish to see what it was like.

I am now converted, the lamb was tender, and again another amazing flavour.

Delhis Chaana Masala

This had a nice little kick to it, but the sauce was very creamy, and overall again another really nice tasty dish.

Pilau Rice

The rice was nice fluffy and is the perfect accompaniment for an Indian main.

Plain Naan

Fluffy and very nice, naans are ideal served as a side dish to your favourite curry.

Desert :

Yup and theres more…

Gulab Jamun

This is a big fav of mine, as its something I ALWAYS order and mmmm so good.

I could have easily had many many more of these 🙂

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the Heat and Eat from Swadish.

Firstly a big thanks to Swadish for making my Saturday evening special.

The food tonight was amazing, and that is really the only way to describe the food.

Everything was cooked to perfection, had amazing flavours and mega moreish.

I have been to Swadish a few times, and plan on visiting again when I can. I can honestly say the food, service etc was perfect.

If you want to taste how good Swadish food is then follow them on Instagram, Facebook etc and send them a message. The Heat and Eat platters are going fast, so you need to get your order in or you will need to wait till next weeks.
