Harden's survey result
“In a quiet Glasgow backstreet” (between the M8 and the SECC) and with an “unassuming” exterior, Ryan James’s “splendidly preserved institution” is one of the city’s oldest venues, complete with an “unexpectedly beautiful interior” (of the tartan-clad, vaguely baronial variety) lined with booths – a “fine destination that has maintained standards for many years” (especially for Scots seafood).
Ryan James’s business-friendly, wood-panelled, traditional-looking operation (complete with booths) can prove “hard to find if you are not local (it’s in a quiet area off the M8 in the way to the SECC), but it’s worth it” for the Scots seafood, and its “regular use as a film location adds to its renown”.
Ryan James’s dark, tartan-clad Scots seafood operation (part of a small local chain) occupies a historic, wood-panelled site near the SECC, and won acclaim for some “fabulous” meals this year “efficient and friendly” service too.
Near the SECC, Ryan James’s wood-panelled, business-friendly bastion with quiet booths inspired surprisingly little feedback this year for its seafood-focused cooking, but it remained extremely well rated.
