Quote: Glasgow is a cultural gem and the heartbeat of a resurgent Scotland with sights and sounds to suit all tastes.

Glasgow is awash with Indian restaurants, many offering a cheap self-service buffet. Unfortunately, all too often the cuisine in such establishments is a cold, over-cooked, and rather lack lustre affair which has been brought to life cosmetically by copious amounts of artificial food colourings.However, Mr. India's Balti and Dosa House offers a quality curry experience with the emphasis on freshness and unobtrusive yet attentive service. So many curry houses offer up different dishes on the menu, which in reality, are contrived from the same sauce base. In this establishment, curries, particularly the speciality meals are freshly prepared to your required taste, and reflect a far more genuine ...Read More

Roastit Bubbly Jock's

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant

Quote:
Roastit Bubbly Jock's has made Scottish food sexy! Who'd have believed it possible. Informal dining has made it a particularly popular haunt for locals, so booking is essential Thursday through to Sunday. I was particularly impressed by the fresh fish on offer and a fantastically sumptuous plate of scallops simply accompanied by a tasty yet unpretentious red pepper sauce provided a very credible starter. This was followed by a breast of pan fried duck which really was cooked to perfection. Whilst I was a little disappointed by my dessert of bread pudding (a tad stodgy for my liking), my wife's dessert was a simple chocolate brownie which oozed charm and really hit the spot.The menu...Read More

Poised majestically on the fringes of Glasgow Green, the People's Palace tells the colourful tales of the ordinary folk of Glasgow past. A monument to the daily hardship of life in industrial and wartime Glasgow, the somewhat ageing displays chart the varied fortunes and heritage of a richly cultured working class city. Whilst the visuals are in part looking a little tired, the informative style of presentation is sure to capture the interest of all ages.Adjoining the Palace are the small but attractive Winter Gardens with an excellent cafe suitably located amidst the botanic wonders. However, the real piece de resistance is the Doulton Fountain which stands proudly over ...Read More

Fury Murry's

Attraction

Quote:
For those of you who are not getting any younger, but still like to boogie the weekend away, Fury's (as it's affectionately known by locals) is a fabulous club that strikes a fantastic balance of having probably the most eclectic crowd of any club in the city. From 18 to 50, punters strut their stuff on the intimate dance floor to Stone Roses classics, followed by a burst of Stevie Wonder and Nirvana, which can segue into whatever the flavour of the month happens to be.If you're coming as a student or just for a visit, this Glasgow institution has something to offer everyone and still satisfies the market for those of us who can't cope with hardcore dance drivel which seems to be the...Read More
