I was invited to The Dhabba last week to try their North Indian cuisine. I was full of expectations that the restaurant would be just another curry house. That’s not to say curry houses are bad. In fact, visiting some of the best in Glasgow i.e. Akbars and Anarkali, I assumed The Dhabba would be…Details

My Recent Reviews
The recent PR night at Mozza was indeed a lavish one. The generous owners put on a great event. Guests got to choose from the 13 different pizzas on their menu – and what a spectacular menu it is! The choice of pizza is well varied with something to suit everyone. On arrival, we were…Details
With Transmit festival replacing T in the Park this year the new event had a lot to live up to. I had previously attended gigs at Glasgow Green and found them somewhat rowdy and ‘hooliganish’. However, the organisers of Transmit had all that taken care of by truly delivering to the Scottish festival scene. Perhaps,…Details
Having previously reviewed Alston Bar and Beef, I was invited back to sample their new menu launch. Happily, the visit was every inch the treat it usually is, mainly because the consistency of service and food is always impeccable! Located under Glasgow Central Station (on the right when exiting at Gordon Street), the restaurant is…Details
With Lebowski’s South right on my door step you’d think I’d be eating there more regularly. However, the place is not worth a foot in the door. Talk about over priced! Food! Drinks!! And don’t mention the appalling service – it’s worse than the venue itself!!! Recently, I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and…Details
The Haylie Hotel, Largs, is ultimately … the hidden gem of the Ayrshire coast. With stunning, candle-lit, panoramic views over the water, the restaurant is rustic, romantic – and seriously amazing! Specialising in steaks, there is an extensive menu just willing to be sampled. Yet, I always seem to go for the same dish! To start I had the potato…Details
I was honoured to receive a personal invite from Ali, the owner of Charcoals Indian restaurant on Renfield Street. The busy, independent venue surrounded by large chains is clearly successful and very well run. Just take a look at their awards proudly hanging on their walls. Not only that, Charcoals boasts a huge celebrity following…Details
It was a pleasure to be invited along to Barburrito on Hope Street. Their blogger’s event was wonderfully organised with lots of special treats! I would label Barburrito as healthy, filling Mexican fast food. There’s a fantastic choice of meats and lots of other Mexican toppings including guacamole, sour cream and salsa. You can also have…Details
The Spanish Butcher on Miller Street has a dark, mysterious ambience with minimal signage and decoration. It is not a run of the mill ‘steak and chips’ kind of restaurant either but innovative, top-end comfort cuisine. Seated in a spacious booth the friendly waitress was knowledgeable, yet slightly overwhelming! I think she may have visited our…Details
A drunk blogger turns up to a blogger event and gets star treatment! Well, that was my night at Paesano on Great Western Road last week. Thrilled as always to be invited to these events I made the school girl error of going for the ‘infamous’ few beforehand. Not one to let down the food blogging community…Details
The New Innis and Gunn Venue, Ashton Lane. Speak-easy Hoptails!!! and Everything Else Under One Roof!
The opening night for the new Innis and Gunn venue on Ashton Lane last week was fab! The new location has everything under one roof. It’s spacious and cool! Hang out with friends on the ground floor, have a meal on the first floor or have a romantic date on the top floor – perfect! …Details
Once upon a time, Chelsea Market opened in Finnieston. The large venue boasts comfortable seating, an enticing menu and lovely staff! – a dream come true … with all the innovation and sparkle a restaurant should have. The menu is fun, interesting and magical – and very reasonably priced. To start with we had the Crispy Squid…Details
