Bukharah Review

  • Rating Bukharah Pre-Theatre Menu Big Deal (Rating 3.8/5)
    This is the second time my friend (who travels through from Edinburgh) and I have tried the Big Deal at Bukharah. We were impressed by the food: the Masala Fish is one of the best starters I have ever had in an Indian restaurant; and there was a great choice of main courses and we were pleased with our choices too - South Indian Garlic Chilli (with Lamb) and Glasgow Chicken Tikka Massala. The problem we have with Bukharah is the speed of the service. On both of our visits (January 2018 and 18 January 2019), we waited on average about 25 minutes between each course. The slow service might not be an issue for diners who are guests in the Kelvin Lorne hotel where the restaurant is based but given that we are trying to catch transport connections so that my friend can catch a train back to Edinburgh, it is for us. Its unfortunate that this experience has spoiled our visit to the restaurant on both occasions. It is rather ironic that the small print on the Big Deal voucher stated that tables must be returned within 1 hour 30 minutes. In our experience, we could not get out of the restaurant within the 2 hour period that we'd set aside for our meal. We had to request the bill at the same time as ordering desserts so that we could make our transport connections. Bukharah need to address this issue. Their competitors in the neighbourhood offer a far slicker service to diners. The slow service would deter me from making another visit to the restaurant.
