Wee Curry Shop
An offshoot of the ever-popular Mother India, this is exactly what it says it is - a wee curry shop. The diminutive proportions help maintain a nice cosy atmosphere, as do the highly desirable prices. It sells huge portions of delicious authentic home-cooked Indian food for less than a mediocre takeaway would cost elsewhere. The menu is brief but incorporates a good vegetarian choice. The a la carte main courses are about a fiver each but there are also special set three-course lunches and pre-theatre deals and you can bring your own bottle for a measly 95p corkage. It's a favourite amongst students and film buffs (the GFT is round the corner) as well as all gourmets on a budget.
Had enjoyed a lunch here couple of years back and decided to visit last night for dinner. Picked the special lamb curry.Dont usually choose lamb in a restaurant in case too fatty. Was not dissapointed. In fact could say was the best lamb curry have ever tasted.My partner had a prawn curry which was as nice. The atmosphere was nice and staff friendly.Fairly reasonable too.For 2 starters, 2 mains,2 coffees, and bottle of red,total £43.00. Will most definately be returning.
A nice atmosphere and friendly, if rushed staff, made this a generally pleasant experience. The restaurant is tiny - from the furnishings I suspect it used to be a (very) small bar. The food was good, but not of the excellence I'd found at its sister restaurant "Mother India's Cafe".
Having been to the other place a week or two back, where you order multiple small dishes (like tapas) I was a little taken aback at the Wee Curry Shop by the size of the portions. As a vegetarian who is a mushroom wuss, I chose the vegetable pakora as a starter (I expected a couple, and got six or seven with a pile of salad, and a spoonful of something made of mushroom and chickpea), and the chana dhal as a main course with a couple of chapattis.
The dhal tasted good, if on the bland side of tasty - but the quantity of the bowl overwhelmed me. Foolishly I'd asked for garlic potatoes as well, but there was no room in the inn...
The value for money is exceptional - I paid £18 for at least twice as much as I could eat coupled with a couple of pints of Kingfisher. But I would have preferred to spend a little less on a smaller meal. Next time I'll know.
In all my years of eating curry I have never had such beautiful food. Outstanding food from such a bizarre place. The look of a closed up corner shop you wouldn`t look at twice but with food to die for. I travel to Glasgow every two years and I pray to the curry god this place is still going when I get there. An absolute gem of a place. Just go and see for yourself, order the chicken pakora starter and lamb karahi with chapatis. Wash with a couple of pints of kingfisher, heaven. What I didn`t like.........having to wait two years before I come back!
You have to try this place. This place was recommended to my partner and me, we love it so much we always come back every time we visit Glasgow. As the name suggests it is small, but that what we like about it along with the food which is freshly cooked right in front of your eyes. Its amazing how something so small really is in the big league.
This was by far the best curry ever. The title is exactly as it says a shop and the table at the window is just like sitting in the shop front. Staff so helpful. Its traditional cooking For 3 adults and 1 child with starters and main course wine and soft drinks just under �50
The Wee Curry Shop is without a doubt, the best curry house in Scotland, if not the UK.
It is tiny (7 tables) but thats part of its appeal. Every table has a view of the kitchen, and you can see you food being prepared freshly. Its takes a little longer than normal to get your food to the table. But the fact it was freshly cooked metres away from you more than makes up for that.
The selection of meals is not huge, so what they have got, the chefs have perfected. Honestly, you WILL not find a better Southern Indian Garlic Chilli Chicken in the UK.
The prices are amazing too, recently two of us, had 2 alcoholic drinks each, 2 starters, 2 main courses and 2 extras and it came in under 30 pounds.
Honestly, get yourself along to this place, you wont be disappointed (unless you havent phoned in advance and booked a table). Everytime I have been here, I watch people who havent booked being turned away.
