More about The Dhabba, Glasgow

For something a bit different from the usual Indian offering, take a trip to The Dhabba in Glasgow city centre, where you’ll find authentic northern Indian cuisine – not a piece of greasy pakora in sight. Instead you could start your meal off with some hearty soup, like the gosht kali mirch ka shorba (a spicy lamb and black pepper soup) or daal shorba (a lentil soup with fresh herbs, spices and garnished with rice) or some bharloan dhingri (fresh button mushrooms filled with paneer, chopped nuts and spices and fried in batter).

Main course dishes include machi dum sunehri (pieces of monkfish and peppers in a garlicky sauce) and raan-e-changeji (tender whole baby leg of lamb slow cooked in its own juices with herbs, spices and dark rum). Vegetarians will find plenty of options to choose from too, like the chole (whole white chickpeas with a blend of ginger, garlic, caramelised onions, and cumin seeds). For an unforgettable meal in Glasgow’s city centre, book a table at The Dhabba on Candleriggs in the Merchant City.
