Our story

Love for food

Koolba is a warm, modern, and inviting authentic Indian restaurant in Glasgow, located in the heart of the Merchant City. 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 family owned and operated and care that every customer that walks through our 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. Can any other Indian restaurant in Glasgow say the same?


At KoolBa we maintain a strong ethos of quality and authenticity in our food. Everything is made to order, 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 Fruit market.


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 any other Indian restaurant in Glasgow doing this!


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, we think you’ll find it’s more than worth the wait. You won’t leave feeling bloated from stodgy dishes from other Indian restaurant in Glasgow.
