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

Food Review: The Mumbai Mansion, 250 Morrison Street, Edinburgh

One of Edinburgh's best Indian restaurants, near to Haymarket Railway Station Located between the Jolly Botanist and Chop Chop on Morrison St, this is where the head chef (and many of the staff) from the well-regarded Indian fine-dining restaurant Mithas have relocated after its closure in 2015.

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.

V Deep new menu - Hipster Vindaloo

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

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
