About Babu Bombay Street Kitchen
Must be one of Glasgow's best kept secrets!
Authentic street food, nothing fancy but simple well cooked Indian comfort food, enthusiastic friendly staff well worth a visit (or two).
I had the curried mince and peas ( chef's favourite childhood memory) and my wife had the chicken - no killer chillies - just flavour with savour.
Off to try and cook Tattie Patties!! - Just ask the staff for recipe
different, intimate, tasty!
excellent value, welcoming and very interesting food, and great that vegan/ vegetarian options get their own page!
Indian street food in Glasgow city centre
Located at the Bythswood Square end of West Regent Street, Babu Bombay Street Kitchen is a quirky and colourful basement diner. Grown from a street food operation that continues to pull crowds at farmers’ markets and other outdoor events, the mix and match decor is in keeping with the laidback and friendly ambience. Babu Bombay Street Kitchen may not be first choice for a posh anniversary dinner but it is a warm and inviting space for a quick and spicy breakfast, tasty lunch; evening dinner with friends, low-key date or a catch-up with a pal over a mug of chai and a slice of cake.
Chai, rotis and more
As the name suggests, Bombay street food is the name of the game here and it comes in the form of home-style cooking, family recipes and street snacks with the occasional Scottish flourish. The extensive choice ranges from bacon chapatti wraps and big plates of keema pau – lamb mince in a spicy garam masala sauce with peas – to takeaway tiffin boxes.
There is always a special curry of the week alongside the regular dhal, veggie and meat options. Underpinning it all is a commitment to using fresh, seasonal ingredients with no added preservatives and little oil. Punchy flavours and healthy dishes go together at Babu.
