I'd passed by a few times and it looked good from the outside - kind of fairly standard modern Indian. But we ventured in for the first time last week and were very pleasantly surprised. This place is more than a standard curry house. The dining room is really great - small enough to be intimate but big enough to... More

We were looking for a meal prior to the Who Concert in the Hydro later in the evening. The restaurant is only 5 mins drive from the Hydro and as such ideal for a meal before any concert. We booked the table through Trip Advisor and everything went as planned - which is more than I can say for another... More

We have been to Balbir's several times and have never been disappointed. The food is first rate, service is friendly and efficient. They will try to give you exactly what you want and adapt the menu to suit if necessary. Happy atmosphere, staff care about the service they give.

Attended gathering here for someone's birthday. Took ages to get us sorted and attend to us, over 45min. Another while for food to be sorted out. Would have appreciated a wee nibble or something while they got their act together. For a booking of around 40 people would think a bit better deal £22 a head for two courses not... More

I have eaten in Balbirs many times over the years so was confident to bring a small group of business associates along for dinner. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere in very sophisticated surroundings and service was impeccable. I chose starters for the four of us: bhel poori, Phal poori, 2 portions of tandoori salmon, chicken chaat, and aubergine pakora.... More

We have eaten here a few times but not since the refurbishment. This restaurant is clean and welcoming. We arrived at 6pm expecting it to be quiet but every table was busy so glad that we had booked. Service was very attentive, our coats taken and hung up. The food itself was excellent. Starters were fish and chicken pakora and... More

I went here with some business colleagues for dinner. The atmosphere is cool and vibrant. We were seated immediately and the service was excellent, the waiter was very knowledgeable. Food was delicious and the offer of 4 curries, bread and rice for £10 pp was excellent value for money. Beer was priced well and always topped up. All I would... More

I have been to Balbir's twice in one week. Both as part of large groups. In both cases the food was excellent and the service better than almost anywhere else in Glasgow.

Ate off the Brasserie menu today at lunchtime as part of a group of 14. Our first visit since 2007. Was just as delicious as we remembered. Such lovely, friendly staff and excellent value for money. Lots of us had the thali lunch and others had the street food banquet. I had the bhel which was yummy plus veggie thali... More
