Well reviewed by Daily Record’s food critic
There are two places called Agra. One sits on the banks of the river Yamuna in India’s Uttar Pradesh state. It is home to the UNESCO-listed Taj Mahal.
The other Agra sits on the banks of the Crow Road in Glasgow’s Anniesland state. It is home to a menu which prompted the Daily Record’s Tam Cowan to write ‘the food is well worth shouting about’.
Can you guess which Agra today’s Big Deal is for?
Yep, that’s right: the famous one on the banks of Glasgow’s Crow Road.
The Agra first opened its door as a takeaway in 1980, and is owned by the same owner who used to own the Chandigarh restaurant. It proved so popular that the owner soon knocked through to next door and converted it into a restaurant.
Thirty-one years and tens of thousands of happy customers later, the Agra’s spicy delights are still going strong.
Today’s Big Deal is for two people to share a platter of popadoms and spicy onions; two main courses with rice or nan bread and two dishes of fudge cake with fresh cream.
Tandoori and king prawn dishes are not included but that leaves plenty of scope for options such as the mild and creamy lamb pasanda; the lip-tingling zip of the chicken jalfrezi or the classic, spicy thrill of the Agra’s traditional curry, a recipe which has wowed curry lovers since 1980.
This is what Ross had to say on Urbanspoon after visiting Agra in August:
‘Been a while since my last visit and was again very pleased. Service was great and the food was very fresh, well cooked and tasted great once again. Brilliant nan bread, just so soft, light and big.’
