Firstly i would like to apologise for your recent experience at the restaurant. Although it amazes me that any customer would eat a rubbery chicken curry and tasteless lumpy lamb curry and not say anything at the time to the nice staff, who could rectify the situation is slightly bemusing. I was on duty on that particular evening, if you... More

I always enjoy the Pubjabi. Decor is not great but the food is never a let down. We were there on Friday for a small family gathering and everyone enjoyed it.

Superb meal. Both the haggis and fish pakoras were sublime. Very nice lamb biryani but star of the show was the massive chilli cheese naan. Will be back next time in Glasgow.

We stumbled across this after a day out in Glasgow. As a vegan I usually struggle to find vegan options but the staff spoke me through the menu and assured me how the food would be cooked and the ingredients. One of the best curries I have had and excellent value. Looking forward to a return visit. Can see this... More

We found this restaurant by pure coincidence late last night, about 20 minutes before closing time. Even at this late hour nothing was a problem to the friendly, helpful staff. Most of the dishes are gluten free, so a real bonus for Coeliacs. The food was excellent and was reasonably priced. We have got no hesitation to recommend this restaurant... More

Had vegetarian version of the chef's special. It has to be one of the best Indian meals I have ever had - including the curry mile in Manchester. Wife had saag paneer which was also fantastic and made to order to her special instructions! Also, get the pakora if you get the chance. They are to die for! Thanks guys.

Description
Set in the heart of Glasgow, Punjabi Charing Cross offers a dining experience unique to all. Whether it is for an intimate meal, to take the family out or even to enjoy a curry with a group of friends, our restaurant will provide a unique experience. Why not start your meal with our unique starters which range from delicious keema padora to our much heralded lamb chops or even our freshly cooked fish pakora. Our curries are cooked the punjabi way and retain a unique depth of flavour. Why not try our traditional lamb on the bone or even the chicken equivalent. Other curries such as our lamb chilli ginger and our punjabi garlic chilli provide a unique twist to the classic curry everyone loves. No description of the Punjabi would be complete without mentioning our newest creation:the lamb Gurmeet.With such depth of choice one visit is simply not enough.
