About Pir Mahal
Pir Mahal knows its way around the Indian subcontinent in culinary terms, and the locals of Hamilton know Pir Mahal like they do the backs of their hands. They should though, shouldn’t they, because this Indian restaurant has been around since 1978. A family-run restaurant, Pir Mahal is a fixture in the neighbourhood around Brandon Street, and being right in the town centre near Hamilton Central station, it’s an easy reach for curry connoisseurs from elsewhere in the Glasgow region. Pir Mahal’s fresh new look only underlines the longevity of this stalwart operation, but it’s the warm hospitality and, of course, the exceptional food that wins customers and critics over. With a well-stocked bar and a head chef happy to create a vegetarian version of anything on the menu, Pir Mahal deserves your immediate reservation.

A family-run affair and the first and finest Hamilton Indian restaurant in Hamilton, Pir Mahal is a fixture in the neighbourhood around Brandon Street, and being right in the town centre near Hamilton Central station, it’s an easy reach for curry connoisseurs from elsewhere in Glasgow. A winner, we’re sure you’ll agree, before you’ve even got to the restaurant itself or even the food. Speaking of which, the Indian food at this Hamilton gem is always prepared with passion, love and the freshest produce that can be found.
It’s a tough job to select anything from a menu like Pir Mahal’s as standout, quite simply because it’s all fantastic, but we’ll do our best. Begin with a light and crispy pakora or something spicy from the tandoori, then prepare for the main event. Dosas are available, as are Goanese dishes, and although we can’t think of anywhere else in the centre of Hamilton serving both of those, it’s still the signature dishes where Pir Mahal comes into its own. There are many, and the kashmiri saffron and the parsee masala are our picks of the bunch.
Food is always excellent and staff very friendly and courteous. We had a voucher which made it very good value.we will visit again very soon
Food was excellent, service was excellent and price was quite reasonable. We will definately return soon. the decor was also good which gave a relazing ambience
I got a Groupon voucher as a present and I had never tried Indian food before. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was lovely with large portion's x
As usual a very high standard of food - there were four of us and we had starters - mains and a couple of extras (popadoms and spiced onions as a pre starter) with two ice cold largers and the bill total was just over £60.00. Three of us had tikka chicken mains with different sauces and all were delicious. Atmosphere was a little quiet - we were the only four diners at 8:30pm on a Saturday - so people either eat very early are are starting to save for Xmas - this is a regular eatery for us and we are never disappointed with the quality, quantity or value from the Pir Mahal - well worth a visit - we will of course be back.
I've never been to Pir Mahal for about 10 years. Not for any negative reason, it was just that I always went elsewhere. When I seen that they were doing Living Social Vouchers, I bought one as it is close to where I live. I most definitely did not regret it. Both the food and service were fantastic. We will definitely go back very soon. :-D
We really enjoyed our visit to the Pir Mahal. The food was good, we chose pakora to start and then we both had chicken dishes for main, accompanied by rice and nan bread. Excellent value. Will return.
Food was very good (sorry, I'm not an indian food guru but we liked :-) ) and great parking across the road. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall an excellent meal...
The restaurant is lovely and a great atmosphere. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food excellent. Very good value for money and we will be back.
We opted for the buffet and it was lovely and there were a lot of choice. The staff are fantastic and very attentive. We will definitely return.
Great place, good food and portions, right next to the bus and train stations. The service from staff was excellent. We will be going back!!
We use this restaurant regularly. Staff are friendly and food and service consistently very good. The portions are generous and reasonably priced as are drinks.
