Dhabba glasgow Indian merchant city

Food review: The Dhabba, Glasgow

Yabba Dhabba Do The Dhabba in Glasgow's Merchant City has a new menu, designed to look like a newspaper, to celebrate both 70 years of Indian independence and 15 years of The Dhabba (opened in 2002). It's also a rare menu change as we were told that this is the first time in 7 years and

Yaars Indian takeaway Southside glasgow

Food Review: Yaars, 44 Skirving Street, Glasgow

A new yaardstick for Southside takeaways Recently opened in the site of the original Buddy's on Skirving Street is Yaars. It's an Indian takeaway and home delivery with a difference. There's a lack of gloopy oil and sauces here.  Instead fresh flavours and moreish Indian food with a twist. Mr Foodie ordered online and picked

Indian Cottage - mains

Food review: Indian Cottage, 42 Albion St, Glasgow G1 1LH ***CLOSED***

Indian Cottage is clearly not a cottage, it's a ground floor unit on Albion St, and on arrival you could perhaps be forgiven for thinking you're entering a spa - there was ylang ylang or something in the air, a water feature and soothing music. I was in here years ago when it was Thali,


Food Review: Dakhin, 89 Candleriggs, Merchant City, Glasgow, G1 1NP

Gluten-free tasty food in the Merchant City Well-located on Candleriggs but easy to miss due to its upstairs location is the amazing South Indian restaurant Dakhin, sister restaurant to Dhabba on the same street.  How it took so long for us to come here I don't know. They are listed in the UK Michelin Guide as simple

Food Review: Babu Ji, 175 Avenue B, Alphabet City, New York

A must visit for Indian street food in NYC It's always handy to know someone in a city and in New York we have a fellow foodie chum in Fiesty Foodie who we hadn't seen since early 2015 and we just happened to be in New York so what do us foodies do but go eat

V Deep new menu - Hipster Vindaloo

New menu at V Deep, 60 Henderson St, Leith, Edinburgh EH6 6DE

Christmas is time for turkey in most places but not at V Deep for they've just launched a new menu and there's none of that dry boring meat in sight, this is Indian food with a few twists but sadly there's no sage & onion dhal or Brussels sprout pakora yet (maybe next year!?). But they do have plenty of

Mother India Westminster terrace west end Glasgow

Food review: Mother India, 28 Westminster Terrace, Glasgow G3 7RU

Mother India has been a staple for curry in my family since around 2000. It was my first experience of properly spiced fish and I'm glad to see the spiced haddock is still on the menu! It had been a while since I'd been and Mr Foodie had never been but was eager to find something better
