Reasons for trip

An Indian restaurant/cafe with a difference – your main course comes in a sizeable bowl-shaped plate instead of the separate bowl we been used to in all other Indian restaurants. Tip – for the main, order naan bread and no rice (there’s nowhere left to put the rice in the bowl – but dunking the naan is a treat).

Margaret had the ‘Sea Bass Molille’ for just £15 – a whole sea bass in the bowl, with a generous helping of the sauce(?) and garnish for dunking the naan. I had the Lamb Korma which, again had its own sauce/garnish – both flavours very good. It was our second visit here hence knowing not to bother with rice (which we did get last time).
And we didn’t bother either with side dishes, though a selection was available at a small price each.

For starter, we limited ourselves to the poppadoms and dips – and could have had dessert for around £4 or £5 but didn’t bother on this occasion.

A bottle of Merlot (and a jug of water) to wash it down. Simples!

The menu included ‘regular’ dishes, and also a section for “street food”Webpage for Madras Cafe”: ”

As mentioned – that was our second visit and, when back in Glasgow, we’ll surely visit again.

Hand sanitiser bottle on every table, as well as entrance.

Howard Street is behind the St Enoch shopping centre – parallel to Argyle Street and not a shopping street itself, so fairly quiet.

Pay parking is all that’s available in central Glasgow – handy in St Enoch centre car park, or there’s another car park on the corner of Howard Street, right beside Madras Cafe.
