My husband and i visited last night during a weekend in Glasgow, after Reading the reviews on TA. We were very impressed. The staff were lovely, attentive but not too in your face.
We dont eat meat and sometimes have a limited choice in restaurants. Our starter had a fancy name I cant remember but was small pasta parcels with truffle and hazelnuts and was delicious. I nearly licked the plate. The following courses were also very good.
All in all, a lovely wedding aniversary celebration. Thank you

Massimo

Reviewed By Fiona B

Ate at Massimo with 3 family. Friendly staff in a lively restaurant. Service was quick initially but lack of service later on after main course.
Large kids pizza was huge and too much for our youngster who has a healthy appetite.
Pasta dishes were average in our opinion and lacked flavour. I had the chicken and spinach which became chilly quickly and a little congealed and stodgy.
Fine for a quick supper.

Grace & Favour

Relaxed daytime dining. A stylish and welcoming place to meet for breakfast, brunch & lunch. Locally roasted coffee and loose leaf tea make a perfect accompaniment to our cakes and scones which are all made in house by our specialist bakers. No booking necessary. Childrens menu. open 7 days

Reviewed By Jiglian - Glasgow

We planned for brunch but didn't make it there until lunch. They don't take bookings for small groups and it wasn't a problem getting a table. The breakfast menu was available all day and had great choice. Food was delicious and generous portions. Orange juice was really small for the price. Inside was lovely and we didn't feel rushed at all. Would return.

We sell a range of cakes, savouries and breads all freshly baked in shop. We also offer a variety of gluten free, vegetarian and vegan savouries and cakes.

Reviewed By Chrisssssssss

I stay just around the corner from this lovely little bakery and the shop, staff, food, cakes and drinks are all wonderful.
Good selection of food and options for vegetarians. Humus and baked crisps are unbelievably delicious.
The only reason I struggle to give it 5 stars is that it's not exactly cheap. You'd get a small bite, coffee and cake for little change out of £10.
But as a little treat...it's one of the best around.

It merges the talents of Balram Bhatia and Tarun Wadhwa, who both trained in India, before working as Manager and Head Chef respectively for the legendary and multi award winning Mother India and Wee Curry Shop restaurants.

Reviewed By Shona106 - Wishaw, United Kingdom

Found this great restaurant whilst visiting family in Renfrew. We love Indian food and visit our local restaurant, which is really good, regularly, so we were concerned this one might not meet our usual standards. We were not disappointed. The staff are lovely, knowledgeable and attentive, (but not too much). The meal was fab, but special mention has to go to the veg pakora, which were divine and the peshwari naan which was the best I've tasted. Portions are generous, very tasty and we will definitely be back. You can even get a doggie bag to take home if needed. It's also good that you can see into the kitchen, which looked well run, organised and clean. Only negative and it's a small one, is that the water is served in metal goblets which give a metallic taste but it's easy enough to ask for a glass.
