Harden's survey result
“Never disappoints, even after four decades of being a customer” – a “Glasgow institution” (est. 1964) whose “consistent cooking” attracts “generations of families, all welcome”. The victuals touch on most of the flavours of the subcontinent, while the founder, known to all as Mr Ali, is a bit of a West End dining legend.
“Glasgow’s oldest curry house and still one of the best”; it’s now under the third generation, with the legendary Mr Ali sadly gone, but “standards have never slipped” at this local icon, which famously claims credit for inventing chicken tikka masala in the 1970s.
For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
