One of Glasgow’s most legendary Indian restaurants, Shish Mahal has every reason to take pride in its cuisine. Becoming a huge hit in the 1970s while led by curry hero and ‘godfather’ of the Shish Mahal Mr Ali, this restaurant is a local fixture, especially among students looking for affordable, comforting and tremendously delicious Indian cuisine. Utilising the very best ingredients to create their authentic dishes, Shish Mahal’s chefs are purveyors of the boldest flavours – it’s easy to understand why most of the diners are regular guests at this popular establishment. Favourites on the menu include spicy starters like the hara lamb chops, tandoori dishes like the rashemi kabab, and house specials such as the chicken karishma and the chili basar with vegetables. This Glasgow icon on Kelvinbridge’s Park Road is always on the busy side – make sure to book ahead to avoid queuing.
Nice restaurant although a bit dated but the food made up for it. Been a few times and would go again
Last time I ate in the Shish it was in Gibson Street...and my first ever curry was in the Shish....now that I am back in Glasgow it will be my regular...all the old favourites are still on the menu and loads of new stuff to try. I was stuffed...could not finish the food. Fantastic
As always, great food and atmosphere. Good vegetarian choices. Love the decor and waiters appropriately very attentive. Parking can be tricky as pay meters round about.
