Bringing the favours of Africa to Glasgow City Centre, African Restaurant Calabash is the city’s biggest and most authentic African restaurant, serving up cuisine from all over the continent and decorated in a charming, traditional style. Whether you want to try some dishes from South, West or Central Africa, you’ll find plenty of choices on the menu at African Restaurant Calabash. We recommend beginning with some deep-fried cassava slices served with a hot & sweet chilli sauce, before moving on to a hearty curry or stew. Adventurous eaters will love the isi ewu (slowly-boiled goat head with a blend of African herbs and spices) while vegetarians will find plenty of choice too like the vegetarian special (spinach slathered in a peanut butter sauce and served with whole roast plantain). Located on Union Street, African Restaurant Calabash is popular choice for both lunch and dinner. Book ahead to guarantee a table!
Food was delicious, setting was a bit like someone had just stuck some tables in a big room and was very noisy with the TV screen on very loud with the football.
Me and my friends had a fantastic time, the food was delicious and very friendly staff . Very convenient as it's located just below the train station. Will definitely go back again👌
Really disappointed, was looking forward to some proper African food but wouldn't go back....took hour and a half for starters despite only one other table eating. Was mainly full of people drinking, watching football or waiting for the dancing to start...The music was full blast with a laser show. ..couldn't talk it was so loud. Food was ok but my lamb was extremely tough and portions were way too big. Spicing not what I remember from eating in good African restaurants in London and in African friends homes. Opportunity missed.
