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!

Great food, great service and a brilliant atmosphere. Drinks were slightly expensive but the food was very well priced for the quality.

Visited Glasgow last year and had a meal here. Loved the food and exceptional service, so we were super-excited to go back again and booked a table for 4 almost 4 weeks ahead. The food on this visit was just as good, but some of the service was very poor. Our table wasn't ready, so we were invited to get a drink at the bar. The guy taking our order didn't crack a smile and it felt like we were being a nuisance by ordering/standing there. Despite there being free booths, we were then taken to a tiny corner table upstairs, and when we asked for one of the free booths were told they were for 6 people or more (despite there being several with 4 or less at them). I just hate it when people aren't truthful, especially when it's so blatantly done. Food comes quick and it's tasty. We mixed and matched, and when we ordered an extra dish it came in just a couple of minutes. The lady serving us was fine, but the overall customer service experience wasn't a patch on our experience last time. Not sure we'll be back.

Don't like surrendering my credit card at bar - not in days of contactless. My table wasn't ready, and they couldn't open my tab until assigned table, so held my card until I was seated. Unnecessary.

We had noticed this spot on a previous visit & had had a look in, we were impressed with the ambience & the place smells delightful. Although I recognise the need for certain foods to be prepared in advance, the speed in which the food actually arrives is alarming! I suspect magic is being used! Sadly the food was tepid to say the l least & only 2 pieces of lamb in the biryani😞 please don’t misunderstand the food was delicious but a little more attention to detail wouldn’t go amiss.
