My first visit to Balbir’s was an excellent experience. This for me was fine dining Indian style. The staff and service were excellent. The food was simply exceptional. I’ll be back!! We went for the individual banquet and would recommend anyone to do the same.

Early dinner on a cold Sunday evening. Great, polite and attentive service. Food was outstanding. Competition for good quality Indian food is high in Glasgow, so this place raises the bar and adds a stylish demeanour. Will definitely be back.

What can I say? Outstanding food - not your run of the mill Indian. Very good service and nice ambience. One place to come back time after time.

Modern Indian Restaurant,
In June 2016, the restaurant closed for refurbishment. This was part of a year-long project to update from being just a restaurant, to being a more complete dining experience. It was very important to us that we didn’t lose ‘what made us special’ but at the same time allow us to celebrate the diversity of Indian food.

Updates include
A new Bar/ Brassiere with open kitchen serving Small Plates, Indian Grill & Street Food
A new lounge area for guests after dinner
Private dining for 8 to 10 guests
Deli and spice market (due to open mid summer 2018)

This place is temporarily closed due to renovation. It will reopen in late summer 2017
