Food was good. Got my order wrong but resolved it quickly. Nice surroundings. On the down side we put money in little payment folder and we're due £8 change (which we were planning to leave as tip) .. we were not given change or offered it. They took it away and we waited for bit to see what they'd do but nope, never mentioned

I was rudley told i need to order more food as per company policy. I also order specifically sugar free soft drink as i am diabetic but i was given drink of full sugar. The service was very disappointing as the staff was more into pushing customers to order more food than listening to what they are ordering.
In my opinion when i am out for dinner, it should be up to me how much food i need to order not by the restaurant.
It was my first and last time in CHARCOAL.

Found the Rogan Josh far too hot but full of flavour . Waiter very kindly cooled it off without any loss of flavour. Brilliant

Not very welcoming as we were early, many empty tables. Waiter spilling food at serving hatch and licking his fingers. Very unhygienic.

It was ok but not something I really enjoyed.
Didn't realise it was Halal meat as I don't agree with the way they are killed.
Over priced really for what it was

Easily the best Indian in Glasgow.
Super nice people and Ali and the staff can't do enough for you.
You know where you have a favourite Indian for a while then the chef changes or they change hands?
Not here. Consistent every time.
Just check out all their awards on the walls.
And they are really good to the homeless as well.
5/5

The price for the same set menu has gone up as December. The quantity of food was very poor compared to other experiences. Barely any chicken pakora and barely any in either main meal. Mostly sauce and chicken wasn’t very good at all. Very disappointing.
