COOK and Indi’s World Buffet, the rapidly expanding restaurant chain, opened its biggest and most prominent outlet in Glasgow to date last night, when it completed the transformation of the former Harry Ramsden’s flagship outlet into its latest eatery.
Confirming that the West of Scotland is rapidly developing a taste for its pioneering ‘world on a plate’ offering, the latest Cook and Indi’s World Buffet – its third in Glasgow and the seventh in the fast growing chain – caters for more than 200 diners at its latest outlet opposite the popular Springfield Quay at 251 Paisley Road.
Indi Singh, co-founder of the restaurant, said: “Securing such landmark premises on such a prominent location represents a tremendous coup for our expanding chain and signals our ambitions to take our pioneering concept to the next stage of its development.
“Our new Glasgow restaurant offers diners even more dishes from around the world and features an extensive live buffet laden with fresh produce, including a special Halal meat counter.
“A live grill features everything from Piri Piri chicken to BBQ beef burgers – whilst the heritage of the site is acknowledged by the creation of a special ‘Harry’s Fish & Chips’ counter. So former diners need not worry: not only will they still be able to get fantastic fresh fish and chips – but they can get the world on a plate at the same time at the same outlet!”
No expense has been spared in transforming the landmark building into a lavish eatery, the centrepiece of which is a huge colourful mural running the entire length of one wall depicting iconic landmarks from around the world – from India’s Taj Mahal, Rome’s Coliseum, the Eiffel Tower in Paris to a taxi rank in Glasgow city centre.
With a variety of dishes ranging from pizza to pastas, starters to salads, sushi to noodles and pakoras to curries, Cook and Indi’s World Buffet offers seven different cuisines (Indian, Japanese, Sushi, Chinese, Italian, Spanish and Mexican) and over 100 dishes.
And its fixed price system, which starts from just £5.99, means that diners can eat as much as they want – whether double or triple helpings – which appeals to everyone, children and pensioner alike.
“The idea behind our World Buffet is to bring together various cuisines from different parts of the world so that when families are dining out there’s no need for an argument about which restaurant to go to because we offer food to suit everyone’s tastes!” said Singh.
