Food was amazing! Congratulations to the chefs. The service was very good too, although we were rushed to order 8.30pm and told that our table might be needed Last orders were 10pm. Felt a little pressed.

Absolutely fantastic meal. We were in Glasgow overnight and came across here by chance. We didn't have a reservation and were given a 20 min wait which was fine. The waiting staff were very attentive and efficient. We had poppadoms and chutneys to start which were very fresh. We both had a curry which was a good portion without being over facing. The basmati rice was light and fluffy and the naan bread was the best I had tasted- Very thin and light with a crispy base. The food was served piping hot. Would definitely recommend and will be happy to visit again. More...

I would recommend anybody visiting Glasgow to try Koolba. We had an excellent meal there and the staff even surprised my partner with a slice of cake for his birthday which made the night even more special.

This in my opinion is the best Indian restaurant in Glasgow. In for a family meal on my sons 18th birthday. Service brilliant as usual. Food brilliant as usual. A wee special added touch with a cake and candle for my son and a chorus of happy birthday. A great time was had by all. Highly recommend a visit. More...

Went for a birthday celebration. The food was lovely and the staff were lovely as well would definitely go back. The only thing was it was really cold inside and people had jackets on. To be fair it was -2 outside but a couple more movable heaters would be great. More...

First time trying here after many good reviews. I never leave any reviews but feel the need to after my visit. This is hands down my new favourite place. Everything was so fresh from the dips with the popadoms to the chicken tikka starter to the south Indian curry... speechless. 6 stars if I could More...

We had our day trip in Glasgow on March 31st. We just walked in and staff has been accomodative in arranging the table for 5 of us. Staff and service were excellent! We had lamb briyani, chicken Jaipuri and royal kebab. Food was served hot and delicious. Highly recommended if you are in Glasgow. And yes if we were to be back in Glasgow in the near future, will definitely coming back for the briyani �� More...

Fantastic service and recommendations. Fantastic food. Reasonable prices. They accommodate you whether you're a hot-head or require milder.

The undoubtedly was some of the best Indian food I have tasted in this country. The only thing I would say is that you do not get much rice and the naan bread was a little too thin but the flavours are amazing.

Food was absolutely brilliant & had a great chicken bhuna with the best chips I’ve had from any restaurant. The service was great too. Staff were always walking about, making themselves approachable without interrupting our meal. The desert was amazing, would highly recommend getting the chocolate fudge cake with ice cream! More...

Very happy we choose this restaurant. We were looking forward to some good Indian food after a week in the Highlands and were not disappointed! The menu had a wide selection of familiar (and delicious) dishes with all the sides, and the service was the best we had during our trip. Plus it was nice to get away from the tourist crowds on Buchanan Street. More...

Great food, lovely environment and excellent service.
There was a group of about 10 of us, and the team of staff at Koolba couldn't have been better. Just the right amount of attentiveness, quick with the drinks and meal orders (even though a couple of our party were running a little late).
Food was wonderful, and such a variety to choose from. I think we each ordered something different!
At the end of the dinner we had so much left over, and the staff were so kind as to package it up into little takeaway boxes, which we gave to the homeless people of Glasgow on our way back to our hotel... I bet they were overjoyed to be eating such lovely tasty food too!

Excellent place to eat - highly recommended!

Was recomended by a lady passing us by. Deciding wether to go in. SOOO glad we did. Up from England for a few days, decided on a curry. Service was lovely. Made our curries to suit us. They were the best curries we have tasted in years. As for the veg pakora, its to die for. Next visit to Scotland we will make sure on coming back. Please keep up the good service and beautiful food.

"If I was a cat I would be purring"

This was probably the best meal I have ever had eating out. I chose fish starter and lamb main. I am fussy with both of these but given the good reviews, I thought I'd see if the reviews were accurate. The fish pakora was sublime. The lamb kebab was so lean (and tasty). The naan was perfect. Spiced onions (spicy) but also perfect. I have two days in Glasgow and I will eat here both days. I think this is my first 5 star restaurant review on Google...

Ignore the 'nay sayers' try this place out. It was well priced, friendly and delicious.

"Still purring"

My reviews: 3 meets expectations (normal, good score); 4 exceeds; 5 outstanding (rare).

Visiting Glasgow from Dundee. We were recommended this restaurant and were not disappointed. The menu was different to other Indian restaurants but most probably the best! ! Staff were attentive and friendly and the waiter whom we ordered drinks from was also extremely patient as we weren't too sure of the currys on the menu, so he took extra time to explain. Thanks to all staff but in particular the chef who does a great job! More...

Cracking wee place in the middle of Candleriggs in the Merchants City area of Glasgow. Friendly staff, good selection of beer, food is amazing, 100% brilliant. Prices are also very good - 5 Adults with starters, main courses a round of beers and a couple of soft drinks less than £150. Will certainly go back. More...
