About Chaakoo Glasgow

The original Bomba Cafes, otherwise known as Irani Cafes, were originally opened by the Persian & Irani immigrants to India in the 19th Century. The Irani Cafes were very popular for Irani Chai Tea & a melting pot menu of classic Iranian grill dishes & classic Bombay dishes alike. They were adorned by students, taxi drivers, prostitutes and lawyers akin, as the world passed by outside. In the 1950s, there were 350 Irani Cafes & today, only 25. At Chaakoo we have strived to keep the feel & experience as similar as possible, with a little added extra. Enjoy us whether you pop in for a Chai, Bombay Slinger or Chaatinar. THERE ARE NO RULES!

Staff were very helpful and attentive as we were unsure as how to order from the menu ( first visit ), all dishes were very good and portion sizes just right, an overall very enjoyable meal and good value, we will dine here again.

King prawns and pakora really good but found the 3 curries very lacklustre.

Apart from one dish the food was great. Felt some of the prices were a bit steep for small plates

Great meal, but it was a little weird that when we arrived for our reservation (slightly early, mind you) that they said "by the way we need this table back by 9:15"

It sometimes feels a bit rushed ( very efficient ) but sometimes a bit too efficient

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They kindly moved us to a different table away from the music for my elderly parents. The food was excellent!

The food was excellent. It wasn’t typical of the usual Indian restaurants we go to, but the recommendations from our helpful waiter contributed to a fantastic meal. The suggestions and advice were spot on, the lamb sagwalla was a particular favourite. Highly recommended!

food and drinks were delicious as always.only complaint would be that this was the first time sitting at the back of the restaurant and it was stiflingly hot, a little bit of air conditioning back there would be welcome.
