Keep the love affair going with today’s Big Deal on a two course meal for two at Punjabi Charing Cross on North Street.

The food at The Punjabi Charing Cross has attracted lots of glowing reviews. This one is from TripAdvisor. The reviewer was so taken with his meal that wrote rather a long review. We’ve cut it for length:
‘I love this place, the food is top drawer and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Their nan bread is like an elephant’s ear… I’m addicted. As far as I’m concerned they have the best Indian chef in Glasgow if not Scotland… believe me, as soon as you go you’ll wonder how this jewel escaped you for so long and like me you’ll be telling everyone…’
We can’t write a better recommendation than that.
If you want a ‘top drawer’ Indian meal from ‘the best Indian chef in Glasgow’ then today’s Big Deal with Punjabi Charing Cross is just the ticket.
