Glasgow’s coat of arms features St Mungo supported by two salmon.
Fair enough but the city’s love for curry is so legendary that perhaps it should feature a chicken tikka masala supported by two samosas.
Show your civic pride by taking up today’s Big Deal on a cracking two course buffet lunch at Assam’s Indian Restaurant in Glasgow city centre.
Before opening Assam’s on West Regent Street in 2009, the team behind the restaurant had a long history working in some of Glasgow’s best known Indian restaurants.
As a result, Assam’s was a hit pretty much as soon as it was up and running.
Today’s Big Deal is for two people to tuck into Assam’s legendary lunchtime buffet.
Why pick at an al desko sandwich when you could be sitting down to an Indian buffet?
The selection of dishes on offer changes regularly but there is always at least seven starters and seven main courses to choose from along with rice and nan breads.
Popular starters include the chilli chicken wings, the fish or chicken pakora and the onion rings in spicy batter.
Among the main courses, dishes like the chicken tikka chasni; the veggie biryani; the lamb Bhoona and the chicken korma are always popular.
Assam’s has had some cracking reviews since opening. The Evening Times’ Dinertec wrote that ‘superb was the instantaneous verdict’ while The Record’s Tam Cowan was also chuffed.
More importantly, Assam’s customers rate the restaurant highly. At the time of writing, over 150 5pm customers who had eaten at Assam’s have given it a combined 4.2/5 score.
