Thought I would create a pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants thread to hopefully keep a tab on the growing amount of them and so people can post news, opinion and experiences. Cheers.
Akbars of Bradford - the VERY popular chain of Indian restaurants are opening a Glasgow branch in Febuary 2012 in the current Tiffin Rooms on Sauchiehall Street:banana:
All their restaurants have a very fancy Versace decor - from wallpaper to the carpet - and being a regular visitor to their branches in England, I can easily say it is the best Indian food you will most likley ever sample - at very reasonable prices too (coming from a Pakistani lad who knows his Indian food!)
Attention to detail is something else, and after months and months of hype on the Newcastle Forums before their opening there last year, during which most posters and forum guests were saying "what is all the fuss about?", they all thoroughly loved it when it opened and now most are regulars!
Bring on Febuary 2012!
This isn't good. Glasgow is spoiled when it comes to Indian restaurants and Tiffin Rooms is one of the best. Akbar's - certainly the ones I've eaten in down south - aren't up to much at all in comparison.Thought I would move this from the Retail thread to start us off..
Pious Fraud; "Amongst the celebrities invited to the star-studded opening party were: Paolo Nutini; Gio and Nicola Benedetti; Kirsty Wark; Clare Grogan; John Amabile; Kaye Adams; Suzie McGuire; Richard Gough and Tam Cowan." Think that's what they call an A to Z list![/QUOTE said:Note how it says 'invited.'
I could 'invite' all the aforementioned to my upcoming birthday night out but it doesn't mean they are going to turn up.
The paper should be ashamed of publishing this ridiculous little name dropping puff piece.
Apart from that the place looks great and i look forward to trying it! :cheers:
Good to know, cheersMuch as it pains me to admit it, but Jamie's Italy is the best Italian I've been to in Glasgow by quite some distance. I really wanted to hate it because Jamie Oliver is *SUCH A NOB*, and only went because we were given vouchers, but the food and the service were just so damn good. Waitresses were hot too, though I didn't comment on this to my mrs.
