The management and staff welcome you to the restaurant-whether as a regular patron or as a first-time experimenter in the delights of Indian food.
When the Koh-i-noor first opened in 1964, it was the first Indian restaurant in Gibson Street. In response to its growing popularity, an extension was added in 1974. It continues to be run as a family business-by the present owner, Rasul (or Russell) and his son Waseem, the grandson of the founder.
The family hails from the Punjab and Punjabi specialities such as Paratha and Bhuna Lamb are particularly recommended. The Koh-i-Noor Restaurant prides itself in the fact that the excellence of the food is matched by the courtesy and efficiency of the service, and by the spotlessness of the kitchens.
The restaurant is favoured by many well known people, from show-business, politics and the media. Its reputation goes far beyond Glasgow and the itinerary of numerous distinguished visitors to the city would not be complete without a visit to the Koh-i-Noor. It has been commended by Egon Ronay for many years, and Christopher Drew Smith the Good Food Guide.
