It is somehow by chance that we ended up at the Crème de la Crème restaurant in Glasgow.
I was meeting a friend and he had only an hour for lunch time unfortunately, so the closest Indian place to his workplace "Skypark" was this one. I had heard a lot about this restaurant probably because of the cheesy radio ads on Radio Clyde but was never that interested. Yet before we entered, I was being told by my mate that it used to be a cinema, interesting! As soon as you come in, you first think that yes, this is very unconventional and my first impression was good, there was also that curry smell and loads of heat...after a while actually, the heat becomes a bit smothering.
You can either go à la carte on the ground floor or buffet style in the upper level floor, we went upstairs and its odd you can look at the bar & tables downstairs.
Drinks are served at your table and they offer a good selection of indian lager, once you are served you go for the buffet food...here again good combination, except for the desserts where you don't get much indian delicatessens but rather a good scottish mix from Tunnocks.
All in all, quite good for the money, which seems to have increased from what I read in other reviews, we paid £15 per person with one drink included.
Oh I forgot to mention, they have a patrons' car park which is good considering the area.
I love the creame de la creme in glasgow. you either love it or hate it as some people think it's a big food warehouse where they ship you in feed you and ship you out again. Ithink the prices are very reasonable but the drinks are on the pricey side but that is not unusual for restaurants. The atmosphere is generally relaxed and easy going and the moonlight chicken is out of this world. They have something to suit everybody's taste they don't just serve indian food they do plenty of european dishes too. A great night out if you want something a bit different or even just a chicken patia.
