Ranjit’s Kitchen

It was highly enjoyable to be back on Glasgow’s Southside once more. After a beer or two at the Allison Arms, Beer Man and I went to look at the impressive Koelschip Yard – my first visit – and then on to a fun crafty drinks and nibbles place called Marchtown.

After that little lot, we were in need of a feed so headed towards Ranjit’s, a canteen-style Indian that had caught our eye on a previous trip south of the river.

We found it packed out but had timed it beautifully to pick up two seats in the corner as a couple of satisfied looking customers waddled off after a good feed.

Pakora

Beer Man put me in charge of ordering so I opted for their thali selection for each of us, plus some pakora and paneer rolls. I also tried their salt lassi which was excellent.

The thali was made up of a warmly satisfying soupy daal, a cauliflower curry packed with mustard zing, freshly made rotis, fresh yoghurt topped with cardamom and little puffed balls, fresh salad and pickle. It was full of charm and satisfyingly diverse flavours.

Thali

The pakora were probably the outstanding item of the day. They had a really enjoyable lightness to them with good crisp coating. The paneer rolls were good, too.

So overall, Ranjit’s served us a really good Friday evening feast that was an enjoyable counterpoint to our Southside pub-crawl. The value on offer was as pleasing as the flavours. I’d be happy to return and would recommend it to you.
