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.

My wife and I visited this restaurant and were once again very impressed by the standards held by the staff and the food was great and reasonably priced, we will certainly revisit in the future.

We arrived for the dinner service at 7pm. We were promptly seated - we did have a reservation - and our coats were taken, which was a nice touch. The menu has a great selection of curries and sides and some good beers too. Our food arrived in good time and was exceptionally tasty. Some of the best Indian style... More

I hold my hands up and admit to eating in loads of Indian restaurants over the years (reviewed a few on here actually) and Balbir's was right up there. It's the only Indian restaurant I've been into in Glasgow so I can't really compare. We ate at the back in the main dining room and I was impressed with the... More

We visited here on a Saturday night with friends, we were so looking forward to it as everyone I spoke to had said how good it was, we all had different starters which were lovely, the tandoori salmon that I had was amazing, the mains were really disappointing though, again we had 4 different curries but they all tasted the...

Bought an it is on voucher but only remembered we had it the day before it was due to expire. We phoned and the restaurant let us use it after the expiry date as they had loads of bookings - it seems most people were in the same boat as us where they had forgotten about the voucher... fab customer...

I'm a big fan of Mother India and I still consider their food quality just tips Balbirs.....however Balbirs is consistently improving. Firstly the service and atmosphere at Balbirs is just great. The restaurant is spacious and airy.. good for business as well as social events. Menu is well balanced...not to big...something for everyone. The lamb dishes are excellent, IMO lamb... More
