KoolBa is a warm, modern, and inviting authentic Indian restaurant located in the heart of the Merchant City in Glasgow. We have worked hard and KoolBa has now become synonymous with quality Indian and Persian cuisine.
We have achieved this with our commitment to using the best local produce, fresh herbs, carefully selected whole spices, but above all offering genuine appreciation and care to all of our customers. We are committed to providing freshly made to order dishes to Glasgow’s diners. Some customers enjoy switching between our Indian and Persian dishes with each course, and in particular, many of our regular diners recommend our homemade chicken pakora as a firm favourite, along with freshly made peshwari naan.
We also have a personally sourced and expansive wine and beer list that perfectly compliments our dishes. Please ask us to pair some for you! We believe that we have all the ingredients perfectly blended to create a dining experience you will remember for a long time to come.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to KoolBa…
What makes us different
We are family owned and operated and care that every customer who walks through our restaurant’s doors receives a great experience. We have a slightly different style from other restaurants, we don’t like to intrude on you but are always on hand should you need anything. We have even picked up a few Eat Scotland Silver Awards over the years for our high service standards.
Made To Order
At KoolBa we maintain a strong ethos of quality and authenticity in our food. Everything is made to order, even our takeaway menu, so if you live locally send us your order and you can enjoy some of our Indian or Persian cuisine in your own home. You can find us in the Merchant City, Candleriggs, across from the Merchant Square, City Halls and Old Fruitmarket.
Persian BBQ & Grill
We are an Indian Restaurant with a unique twist! And that unique twist is our fantastic Persian Grill dishes. Choose from succulent skewers of marinated chicken, lamb chunks and minced lamb, balanced with a secret family recipe of spices, all cooked on an open charcoal grill. You will not find anything like this nearby!
We care immensely about the food on your plate. That’s why we source and use only the best in local Scottish produce ensuring real quality in our authentic Indian and Persian dishes. We never pre-cook anything. All dishes are made to order and while this means you might be waiting just a little longer than usual for your food, we think you’ll find it’s more than worth the wait.
