Top Glasgow restaurants
- Ubiquitous Chip has been a well-known Glaswegian restaurant since it was opened by Ronnie Clydesdale in 1971. The restaurant has been designed over several floors to resemble a rainforest, but the cuisine is Scottish, using only Scottish produce.
- Two Fat Ladies at 88 (where else?) Dumbarton Road, is one of the best seafood restaurants in the city. The restaurant is small, so reservations are strongly recommended to be sure of securing a table. The menu changes daily to reflect the latest catch but consists of fine Scottish fish cooked in a variety of styles, including European and Middle Eastern.
- Brel is a Belgian-themed bar in Ashton Lane. As well as a great selection of Belgian beers, guests can enjoy dishes such as pork belly, moules frites and delicious desserts. In the summer, eat and drink in the garden.
- The Hanoi Bike Shop in Ruthven Lane is quirkily decorated with old bike tyres and multi-coloured lanterns. The atmosphere is relaxed, and guests are encouraged to share the dishes, which get brought out when ready. The food is made from scratch with ingredients sourced locally whenever possible.
- Lovers of Indian food should head to The Dhabba in Candleriggs. Serving the delicious flavours of North India, this restaurant prides itself on using fresh, natural ingredients without artificial flavours or colours. A speciality are the dum pukht dishes, where food is sealed in a dish and cooked in its own juices, retaining all its natural flavours.
