Assams, Glasgow City Centre

assams garlic naan bread

So far this year I brought you reviews of café and restaurants from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Dundee. Today I'm finally got my feet back in my city of residence and writing a review for those of who don't live in all these other random places I like to visit (which would be most of you). It's Assams in Glasgow, situated on St Vincent Street right beside Cova. 

I recently popped along for a friend's leaving night (she's going to teach English in China) and she picked Assam's because 1) it's bring our own bottle and 2) they cater to particular diets. The second one being particularly important as there would be two vegans attending and someone with a gluten intolerance (and let's not lie getting to bring your own wine is a plus too).

The menu is small and is set out so that anyone with dietary requirements can have things adjusted. The girl who had the gluten intolerance had a naan freshly made up for her. I went for the spinach stuffed mushrooms (which were lovely and are pictured) and Aloo Gobi (which was average). I also ordered a garlic naan (as always) but have to admit I have a lot better (I've been tempted to write up a post of the best nanns in Glasgow). 

The food was standard but we weren't paying that much for it and I was just over a tenner for my meal. It's a difficult one to call. As I have tasted better but given that you can bring your own wine and they're very flexible regarding dietary requirements I'm tempted to still recommend it if you're on a budget or are used to feeling awkward asking for something. 

Have you ever been to Assams? Where's your favourite Indian restaurant in Glasgow?



P.S. Some of my other reviews of Indian's in Glasgow include The Village Curry House, Akbars, and Masala Twist

  1. I've never been to Assams before but a good garlic naan is important for me! Good they cater to so many diets though and BYOB is always a winner x
