Dhabba always hits the spot and superb service too- a kingfisher is only a glance away. Stop the clock; no sooner than you've sat down are you greeted by popadoms and your ordered drink. Say yeah! to the mixed starters - a braw selection of tasty toothsome morsels that sets you up nicely for your main. Monkfish heaven!The staff give... More

We'd spent the best part of an hour trudging around Glasgow city centre trying to find somewhere with a table for 3 people who hadn't booked. We ended up in the Dhabba, who gave us a seat in the bar while we waited for a table. We'd waited a while and were on the verge of leaving when our table... More

Popped in to here on a whim as we were close by in a bar. They were fully booked but I left my number and was told to come back at 20:30 to see if we could get a table. On our return they managed to fit us in and the staff couldn't have been more attentive. Very friendly and... More

Booked a table here on a deal prior to attending a gig at the O2. Food was first class and the staff were welcoming and very knowledgeable when discussing the menu. Would Deffo return and recommended.

Not your normal run of the mill menu it is a bit more authentic to traditional Indian fare. Food is very tasty and good quality. Staff are very friendly and helpful and service is very good.

A good Indian restaurant with an interesting menu. Some different choices compared to the normal Indian restaurant and the dishes are cooked very well. Set price lunchtime menu was value for money. Evening meal dishes were a little more expensive than other places in Glasgow but similar to what I've paid in other towns. Would recommend.

Spur of the moment, felt like lunch today (26 Oct 2016). Good selection of tasty dips for the popadoms at the start of the meal. For main, I had the thali selection. This can be either a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian taster menu - I chose the latter. This comprised a small (but good-sized) portion of chicken curry; lamb bhuna;... More

The lunch menu is a three course deal for under £10. There is a reasonable choice of starter and main course followed by a couple of desserts or coffee/tea. The food is well presented and tasty. For a fixed price lunch offering, the portion size was good.
