As many cafés and restaurants as the city centre and the west end of Glasgow have to offer, one of the perks of my parents coming through for a visit with the car is heading out somewhere a bit more random to eat. As always, I selected an Indian and kept to my beloved southside and headed out to Curry on the Hill in the Shawlands area.
And what makes me recommend this place highly is that the food was absolutely gorgeous (the decor was also super stylish). For starters I went for vegetable tempura which was on the average side however the sweet chilli sauce which came with them was one of the best I've tried. For mains I had a patia curry with vegetables (they have a vegetarian section but the main curry section allows you to have veggies, or fish, of prawns etc) which is a sweet and sour curry (which I loved and was my first time trying).
I also ordered a garlic and coriander naan which was perhaps the beautiful thing I've ever eaten.
The restaurant also gives itself an edge by providing entertainment. The night we were in (Saturday) they had a magician who went round the tables once they had finished up their main course. This maybe isn't my personal choice of entertainment. We were trying our hardest to be polite and laugh along but despite how good the guy was (which he was) we were stuffed from our meals and truthfully wanted our beds! Thankfully the guy only did a few tricks and could sense that we needed our beds (he had been at the table behind us for ages and they were all howlin from laughter). If you're reading this you were really good, but we really needed the bill!
