Vibrant, buzzing, and evolving at a dizzying pace, Glasgow City Centre restaurants are a microcosm of Scotland's largest city itself. Famous for its stunning Victorian architecture and its roguish humour, Glasgow has its finger firmly pressed on the pulse with new places to eat popping up on a regular basis, from stylish bistros to funky street food joints.
Glasgow is well known for its curries, having won the Curry Capital of Britain more than any other city in the UK, but you'll find a number of cuisines in the Glasgow's restaurants, including Italian, Scottish, Russian and Mongolian.
Inspired by food hawkers, Tuk Tuk Glasgow offers the same rustic roadside and railway station dishes which are served up to the busy office workers and school children on the streets of India.
Their dishes are the simple, earthy, lovingly prepared food of the people, representing the tastes of India today.

Originally Miss Cranston’s Tearoom since 1903, Mackintosh at the Willow is now a fully restored dining spot where you can enjoy anything from a three-course meal to an elegant afternoon tea. With its Rennie Mackintosh inspired decor conjuring up Art Nouveau chic, plus a roof terrace for sunnier days, this is where to head for a special treat. You can also browse the history exhibition, have a nosy in the souvenir shop or even take a tour. It’s worth noting that this restaurant has its heart in the right place too, as many of its staff are young people from The Prince’s Trust.

Love tapas but love pasta too? No need to be torn anymore because Dolce Vita offers the best of both worlds. Based in the city centre near the King’s Theatre, you can head there to sample the spuntini (Italian small plate) selection. Inside, the decor is rustically sleek, with rough stone walls, wooden floors and an open fire creating a pleasantly unfussy vibe.

A family-run Indian restaurant which opened in 2019, Swadish offers an appetising combination of seasonal Scottish ingredients prepared using both modern and traditional Indian techniques and spices. The kitchen brigade is run by a chef who trained in many of India's top hotel restaurants and his cooking will come as a refreshing surprise to anyone who still thinks that chicken tikka masala is the pinnacle of Indian cuisine. The setting, a former fire station, is as stylish as the food.

Named after the larger-than-life chef, and decorated with portraits of Marco, this vibrant, colourful restaurant in the stylish Hotel Indigo on Waterloo Street provides what the chef has called ‘affordable glamour’. It might seem as though Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill Glasgow does what it says on the tin but the steakhouse description perhaps doesn’t do full justice to everything on offer here.

Located on Glassford Street, in the heart of Glasgow, Mamafubu is a pan-Asian bistro. Set over multiple levels, the dining room is a handsome affair with large windows looking out onto the street life. Porcelain figurines of Asian musicians and a golden cat with a nodding paw add a slightly kitsch touch.
