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!

Food and service was yet again amazing. Best Indian food I've ever tasted. My server was also very helpful and friendly. Can't rate Chaakoo highly enough.

The food was very tasty, as it usually is! We both shared all of the dishes and couldn’t fault anything with them. Service was friendly, attentive yet unobtrusive. Anyone who came to our table did so with a lovely manner and allowed us to feel relaxed and looked after. Already looking forward to our next visit. Chris

Would be better if food came when ready rather than all together like a tapas.

Chaakoo was recommended by a friend. We had a lovely anniversary meal here and will be back when next down to Glasgow. Thanks to the great staff swell as the chefs/kitchen staff.

The food and the decor were fabulous. The music was utterly dreadful. I don’t understand why you would go to so much effort with the decor and attempt to produce authentic Indian cuisine and then blare out 70’s disco music. It ruined our entire experience. We had to shout at each other over the noise of the music. We asked for the music to be turned down or changed. Music was turned down for a moment and turned back up. One of our party had a hearing aid and the experience was actually painful for them. Your food is good but the atmosphere was not. There is lots of genres of Indian music which could be played which would positively contribute to the ambiance of the restaurant.

Food was really lovely, but very spicy! Perhaps a spice indicator would help. I like spicy food but I did actually struggle. I also think it should be made clearer that the portions are tapas size - the waiter did tell us but we perhaps would have liked to know before, ie on website etc. Service was good though and the restaurant was done out really lovely.
