India Quay in Finnieston (foot of the squinty bridge) is my favourite for a buffet. Never eaten off the main menu, haven't needed to! Freshly topped up all the time. Caters for vegetarians (was actually given a choice!). The staff ar really friendly too.

We had a good meal at Chillies West End in Woodlands Rd on Saturday night. Popadoms and dips for starters, then Baingan fritters, tarka daal, garlic chilli chouza, seekh roti, nan and pilau rice all freshly made and served tapas style.
It doesn't serve alcohol so we had Salt Lassis. The service was very good and it was busy, so booking a table is advised.
The cost? £28.

Was at Thali on Albion Street a few weeks ago, pretty tasty and fun to put your meal together from the selection.

Ally Doll, The Thali on Albion St was recommended to me on Friday by 2 different people! :)

I went to the Dhabba on Friday, which has been recommended by a number of people here. Some of my colleagues have been raving about it for ages so I finally went. Strangely though, all the women I've spoken to haven't enjoyed it as much as the men. There were 5 of us so we asked if we could have 5 starters shared between us, 3 of which looked identical and 3 of which arrived with 5 pieces on them, the smaller “cheeseballs” had more than 5 due to their size, but one of the dishes had a mere 4 pieces so had to be divvied up between 5. I'm pretty sure that it wouldn't have bankrupted them to give us an extra one just to make up the numbers.

Despite being told by near enough everyone who's been to the Dhabba that they don't do Pakora because they only do “real Indian food” the chicken starter we had was actually deep fried and coated in a light pakora-like batter.

I opted for "chicken meatballs" for my main course, which could be served mild or medium but I wasn’t asked which I preferred. It consisted of 4 pieces of ball-shaped chicken in a creamy and mild sauce in a shallow dish. One of my colleagues went for the "hot" chicken option, which I tried and can say that it wasn't all that hot, in both senses of the word.

One starter, one main course with rice, a bottle of beer, a bit of roti and bit of naan worked out as £20 per person excluding tip. Contrast that to the meal I had at the Shish Mahal a few weeks earlier, which was cheaper, more filling and I was able to take a doggy bag home for the following night’s dinner!

Emperor's new clothes I think.

I'm a big fan of Mother India, Shish mahal or whaterver it's called is pretty damn good as well. I haven't tried Mr Singhs, but I see they have 241 mains this month, so I might try it out this week.


There are a lot of bad curry places in Glasgow though.... I tend to stick to Mother India because most times I have tried somewhere new I have been dissapointed. Banna Leaf was a major dissapointment, they even managed to forget to put one of our dishes in the bag.... We didn't realise until we got to the park, we went and got our money back afterwards though. Tere curries were made with frozen mixed vegies, I swear.

Maybe on Wallacewell Road?
I was in a nice wee place on Friday night. I can't remember the name. From the city side of Sauchiehall St., cross over the motorway and it's the first Indian on the left. Nice food and great service. Not posh mind, but Asian customers gave it the thumbs up for me. (Nae swally)

Can anyone recommend a curry house anywhere around town that does a good buffet on a Saturday night?

I've worked with quite a few chefs, and they all say the same thing. Don't eat out on a Saturday night.

Okay... thanks for that but what are we supposed to do? Not eat? I have a bunch of guys I'm bringing over to sample some Glasgow hospitality. A buffet is the easiest and least formal option. I'm just looking for a great Indian buffet on a Saturday night somewhere around town.

Indian restaurants lay on buffet nights to fill the place on a quiet night. I'd wonder why they were running a buffet on a Saturday night. Crap cooking and a liberal attitude to stag nights maybe.

Check out the rest of this thread and pick the place that appeals to you.
