I had a delicious Chicken Tikka Masa - very thick, creamy and tasty. The restaurant is nice and the staff friendly.

I was recommended this place by a close friend of mine because he knows I love a good curry, unfortunately we no longer are on talking terms since he sent me to the worst curry house in glasgow. From start to finish was terrible

1. The meat was over spiced to the point you couldnt even taste it was meat you were eating.

2. The staff were no help when we complained about the quality of the food being low.

3.after eating the food all 3 of us didn't feel good as we suspect the overspicing was to cover up the fact the meat was not fresh lamb but was in fact old mutton.

4. I hadn't even put half the money on the tray to pay the bill when the staff whipped it off the table in a hurry.

5. The price for the food is way too high for the quality provided.

In my honest opinion if you want a excellent curry and good atmosphere at a reasonable price go to Akbars restaurant on sauchiehall street much better place.

Food is amazing but the lunch time portions appear to have shrunk considerably. Disappointing. Maybe I'm just greedy.

The location was great and the staff were quite accommodating, you really get your money's worth there with nice sized portions. However the one star was for the fact that after todays conformation by my local hospital I was given salmonella poisoning by tainted meat, the source was my Chiken korma

Being from England where I am use to Bengali "Indian" Cuisine which is a totally different taste to Glasgow's "Punjabi" influenced Cuisine. Indian food in England is Bengali influenced and all curries are very mild ie Bhuna, Dopiaza, Rogan Josh etc (other than the hot curries Madras and Vindaloo) and are not spicy, no cream, no yogurt (other than a Korma), no ginger and no garlic but very flavourful but not in a spicy way but I love it (maybe because that's what I grew up with) .

So I asked the staff at Shish Mahal if they could make me a curry that's not how they normally make a curry and to make it like a Bengali influenced curry you would find in England and they created it to a "T". I was amazed how incredibly nice it was and how they managed to totally accommodate a customers particular palates. So helpful which I appreciate so much.

They use Fresh Chicken, full breast - never frozen. It was so tender and delicious! I have had curry from many places in Glasgow and they use a cheaper version of chicken which is not full breast and also frozen which gives it that rubber texture which is soooo awful. But not this place!!! They provide their customers with the highest standard and quality of food that is possible.

I highly HIGHLY recommend!!!

We have been going to Shish Mahal for nearly 15 years. If you like Indian Cuisine, this place is the must. The food taste is always the same, very tasty, meat juicy and tender. High quality from papadum to bhuna lamb desi style. Staff always smile and very helpful. Highly recommended.

We had an excellent Indian meal here, when we came for lunch. The restaurant was busy, but there were plenty of service staff. Despite this, sometimes it was some time before plates were collected, and we find it somewhat difficult to attract they're attention at times. Despite this, the good was excellent. Both of our curries were top class in terms of taste, and the naans were among the best I've ever had. Because we had a lunch deal, our meal was quite reasonable; certainly well worth the price for what we received.
