Stopped by this restaurant for lunch with my husband when we were shopping in Glasgow. What a lucky find! It was cold and raining and the staff welcomed us in and we were seated in a lovely sofa by the window. We both opted for a spicy chicken wrap with chips. It arrived promptly and was freshly cooked and piping... More

Enjoyed a Sunday evening meal with friends at the Bay Tree recently. When we realised it was BYOB we popped along to the supermarket nearby for a rather lovely bottle of Tempranillo and no corkage either. The menu is an odd mix of vegetarian and meat dishes, with baked potatoes thrown in. Tasty homemade soup, but I think the menu... More

The food is ok, not great but not bad either, but the service is so terrible I won't be going back..... EVER! We waited for over half an hour for a couple of soups and a further 20 minutes for a smoothie we ordered for our 5 year old. We would have left had it not been pouring with rain!!!... More

The Bay Tree has been an underrated local institution for quite some time. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and it's definitely the kind of place that you could take a great book to read over spiced coffee and outstanding baclava. Tonight, though, we ate. And what a treat! Beautifully aromatic grilled lamb and chicken kebabs on saffron rice and... More

We ate here on a recent 'cultural' trip to Glasgow anjd definitely enjoyed the experience. The Bay Tree describes its food style as 'Mediterranean'; I think it's definitely Eastern Med, and perhaps more Turkish than anything else. My wife's vegetarian, I'm not - and both of us had very good meals. We didn't 'bring our own' wine, but tried the... More

Went in here for lunch today. This used to be a great Vegetarian restaurant years ago but now caters for meat eaters too. So glad after many years we returned. It has some great vegetarian options. We are a family of 3 Vegetarians, 1 vegan and 1 meat eater. Absolutely brilliant place to eat for us all collectively but I... More

Convenient location on great western road. Does not sell alcohol but you can BYOB. Good options for vegans and vegetarians, food quite nice although service is a little slow.
