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!

Liked the idea of small plates as this allows everyone to share and try lots of dishes. Disappointed with Gulab Jamon dessert though, one of my favourites but the one I had was different from other ones I've tried, not so authentic. More like mini donuts really but peshwari naan bread made up for this as it was the best I've had, delicious!

The food was delivered promptly and tasted great. Cocktail of the day was delicious but I felt quite expensive for the cocktail and fish courses.

Excellent restaurant. All the staff were very friendly. Happy to accommodate a pushchair. Food was lovely, no complaints. Waitress pointed us towards the lunchtime menu which saved a lot of money. Thank you.

Service, atmosphere and food were all absolutely fantastic. There were 6 of us which meant a large food order but all dishes were correct first time and delicious.

Loved the food and the concept of small dishes rather than committing to one large dish. If there is a negative it’s an odd one; the service was TOO prompt. Would have preferred to enjoy drink A few minutes longer before food arrived. Fact not having a sweet we then felt we just had to leave after finished eating. I’d still go back if wanted a quick, tasty, value for money meal in that area again though.

Food was really fresh and flavourful. A few unusual menu options made for an authentic experience. Bread wasn’t great but the masala fries made up for it. Definitely be back

True to its reviews we were rather happy with everything here. From UK's standards of pricing this place is decently priced and quantities are good enough, even though they call it small plates or tapas. Downside is that we don't live in Glasgow. Will have to visit again only for chaakoo.

The meat was dry and over cooked. All the dishes were heavily over seasoned. Both my party and I left the food as all we could taste was salt. The staff were courteous and the cocktails were excellent .
