I came in on a weekday evening. It was not too busy. I took the buffet and there is a lot of choice in starters, salads, chicken, chickpeas, lamb and dessert. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. Thanks Mintu and colleagues!

What a find. Food is absolutely gorgeous, and the service 2nd to none. Great all you can eat buffet. Really value for money. Would be in there every day if I could. Pop in next door for a cocktail afterwards, again fantastic service.

Great authentic Indian food, nice ambiance. For vegetarians, the buffet has great range of starters, but mains are limited. They were happy to serve extra dishes prepared fresh to order, which were included in the buffet price. Excellent value for money! A must visit and definitely a re-visit restaurant :-) Right in front of Glasgow Central Station. And the BEST... More

Great Indian food with an extensive menu meant we were not disappointed when we visited this treasure trove in Hope St. Very busy (on 28 December) but fortunately we had booked. Very close to Central Station too.

Recently visited Bombay Blues for an office Christmas dinner, we were not aware that it was a buffet but we were not disappointed. Good selection of starters and accompaniments and an array of main courses to suit all tastes. We spent a very enjoyable couple of hours in Bombay Blues and would definitely return.

Excellent food, buffet has such a great range of starters, mains & tasty desserts, with extra dishes prepared fresh to order. Far too easy to over indulge, excellent value for money! Fish Pakora was a highlight. Service is efficient, friendly & highly entertaining :) Mintu & all staff were so welcoming, with excellent recommendations on food & napkin artistry! Would... More

We used to come here years ago and then it was a decent Indian restaurant but today you should just keep on walking past them until you find another restaurant. Their buffet is just plain bad....the only bright side of this is that there is an Indian waiter with a nicely made turban but he is so bored in his... More

Just visited for a quick family get together. We were only offered the festive buffet at £20 a head. Apart from the crackers there was absolutely nothing festive about it. According to the menu we should have had various options for starters - however missing from this was chicken pakora, haggis chilli and garlic crunch and festive mixed pakora. When... More
