The idea of Glasgow as a city with great restaurants is one that continues to gather momentum, and the standard of Indian restaurants in the city is at the very forefront of this trend. The curry cognoscenti of Coatbridge are as lassi literate as any, and they know that the place to be in their town is Eastern Palace on Bank Street. Eastern Palace has been in operation since 1983, and their longevity is a testament to the quality of their cuisine: book a table and find out for yourself.
The Glasgow public are known for their love of curry, and if you venture out to Coatbridge, then there is one restaurant that stands above all others in the Indian restaurant scene. Eastern Palace on Bank Street first opened its door some 30 and change years ago, and they have become firm favourites ever since, with locals coming back time and again to experience their warm welcome, their pleasant ambience and, of course, their diverse Indian menu.
Eastern Palace is easy enough to get: take the train to Coatbridge Central from Glasgow, walk out of the station and turn onto Bank Street and you’re pretty much there. Sit down, order a pint of Cobra or Kingfisher, split a few starters – pakoras and samosas are always a popular choice – and then order up one of their specials, such as chicken tikka chasni, Karahi Gosht or Masaledar, a tangy green pepper curry with Punjabi spices. Just remember to reserve ahead of time though: the restaurant does get busy!
Warm welcome from staff. Waiter was very attentive and served with smile. Was very informative if the origin of the restaurant advising that his mum and dad didn all the cooking. We have visited before and find the food excellent. Highly recommended.
