About Koolba Restaurant

KoolBa is a warm, modern, and inviting authentic Indian restaurant in Glasgow, located in the heart of the Merchant City. We have worked hard and KoolBa has now become synonymous with quality Indian and Persian cuisine.

We have achieved this with our commitment to using the best local produce, fresh herbs, carefully selected whole spices, but above all offering genuine appreciation and care to all of our customers. We are committed to providing freshly made to order dishes to Glasgow’s diners. Some customers enjoy switching between our Indian and Persian dishes with each course, and in particular, many of our regular diners recommend our homemade chicken pakora as a firm favourite, along with freshly made peshwari naan.

What sets us apart from other restaurants in Glasgow? We have personally sourced and expansive wine and beer list that perfectly compliments our dishes. Please ask us to pair some for you! We believe that we have all the ingredients perfectly blended to create a dining experience you will remember for a long time to come.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to KoolBa… a top Indian restaurants in Glasgow.

If it’s quality and service your after then look no further. All main courses are made fresh from the start unlike most Indian Restaurants. Without doubt the best Indian Restaurant in Glasgow and I would highly recommend.

Great restaurant and staff are excellent, been going here with friends & family on a regular basis for over ten years now. I have given koolba excellent reviews as they are well deserved, however we were there on friday night and my lamb tikka was dry and over cooked, i have had this dish four times, the first two i had were sensational, the lamb was tender and full of flavour, however the lasg two have been dry and overcooked. I would like to add i have had many dishes from kool ba and could not fault anh of the food until my last two lamb tikka meals. So i think its onky fair that i write an honest review when the food wasnt up to their normal high standard.

Every plate of the food was exceptional - well worth the visit - but it is a little pricey compared to others in Glasgow...

The flavours were amazing, the only criticisms I have is the amount of rice did not seem enough for a portion and the naan bread was very thin. Definitely the thinnest naan I have ever had.

We were held up in traffic and were 15 min late in arriving. The manager kept our table for us even though the restaurant was very busy. We were so glad as this is our favourite restaurant we go to when we are in Glasgow. The staff are very attentive, the manager runs the restaurant very well, the atmosphere is great and the food is excellent.

First visit to Koolba for our family of 5 but certainly won’t be our last. Four of us ate from the very well priced pre-theatre menu at just £10.95 each for 2 courses and one from the a la carte which was higher in cost but food was of the highest quality. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 stars
