Super Chef

Reviewed By jayney2827 - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Been using this takeaway for years , the food is fresh and tasty , premises is clean and orders are prepared fairly quickly. I think the curry sauce is the best sauce in town. I do prefer when the food is in the foil containers though which you need to request and not the microwave ones.

Visited here whenever we are in the Port as it's a great little chippy. Highly recommended trying the Pizza Crunch if you are in the area (prepare for a long workout afterwards though!).

Delhi Deluxe Indian Restaurant

Reviewed By Solodam J - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

As you see the interior, it's different than a normally indian restaurant. It's modern, tight, chic, here and there some indian pictures and on the other hand the light is a little bit kitschy. The food could be very good ( for not vegetarian). For vegetarian, there is enough choices but finally all tasted the same. Good service and friendly people. The location is not so far from Holiday Inn express.

Good selection of sandwiches/ toasties/ quichebaked potatoes etc along with changing daily specials. The chicken haggis and cranberry toastie was a bit different and very nice. Good to be able to get freshly squeezed orange. Cakes were also nice with varied selection.

Warmly welcomed by Dan. Bar and restaurant has Beautifully designed interior. Cocktail menu is superb with unusual and different versions of old favourites and some brand new drinks. Choose some bar snacks which were innovative and interesting: beer battered gherkins and caper popcorn were amazing! Excellent service, delicious cocktails, will head there again and maybe have dinner next time.

Bath Street Arches

Welcome to Scotland’s smallest Restaurant/Bistro. With 6 tables & having just 16 seats, you are offered an intimate & affordable dining experience without being intrusive. The restaurant is situated in Gourock on quiet (& often seldom known) Bath Street which is just a stone's throw from Gourock train station. It serves a la carte lunches & dinners as well as tasting menus along with paired wines. The restaurant was set up in 2012 with a focus on using contemporary techniques to serve beautiful but often very humble food in a fun way within an intimate setting. The food does not fit into any one category or cuisine - it isn't even fusion food, but this unclassified genre is a good thing. At Bath Street Arches we firmly believe being outside the bounds of any one category is what allows us to innovate & create without any constraints such as, if one was a steakhouse, a seafood restaurant, a French brassiere. etc. Classification of food and cuisines can bind creativity in the kitchen. All the food is created with an aim to offer the diner not just a delicious but also an interesting combination of flavours while keeping a balance of tastes & textures on the plate. This delicious & unusual combination is what allows a Bath Street Arches meal to become interesting, which can then lead to what is hoped will become a memorable experience.

Visited in April & again in September 2017! A Wonderful, tiny restaurant, which has around six tables Seating for to six diners. It is very nicely decorated and has an intimare, cosy & welcoming ambience! The owner, Ambresh is an innovatine, creative, experimental and enthusiastic foodie and chef, who creates an unusual, delicious, mouthwatering and delectable range of dishes, for the Tasting Experience. This Tasting menu consists of 10 dishes, costing £35 per head, which include sweets and cheeses, and is the equivalent of a three course meal. Some of the dishes have hint of exotic herbs and spices, which tantalise the palate, but do not overpower the food.The food is created by Ambresh, prepared to his specifications by sous chefs and presented by Ambresh who enthusiastically and knowledgeably details the concept of the dish, what he was attempting to acieve and some of the special ingredients! Along with this meanu, you can purchase 7 paired Tasting drinks which include a beer, a wine, usually a vintage Port and a spirit often a Special Gin, with an unusual cordial mixer! Though not a Gin drinker, I was amazed at the wonderful taste created and the overall combination was exttremely palatabile, Again Ambresh describes the research behind the concoction eloquently and enthusiastically and presents a board with an upturned glass, filled with her b infused smoke and a cordial of either fig (3000 yeard old recipe) or Apricot cordial (depending on what is in season). The overall presentation is stunning and very informative throughout the meal, which is superb! The actual dishes change regularly, but the menus are posted up on their site. I cannot recommend this tiny restaurant enough and was so impressed we have visited it again with friends who were equally impressed. And I will definitely visit it again & again and may even try the A La Carte menu, though I may be tempted to go for the Taster yet again

Crystal palace bar Glasgow

Reviewed By Ian G - Greenock, United Kingdom

You know what you are getting with a Wetherspoons pub but this one in particular is excellently placed next to Central Station for anyone who has just arrived in Glasgow by train.
It is very spacious and spread out over two floors so you are almost guaranteed to get a table. On the few times I have eaten here I have had no complaints with the food either!
