Post 10pm Eats in Glasgow, City Centre?

Hey guys,

I'm wondering how late-night the dining crowd in Glasgow is these days. We're going to be arriving in Glasgow fairly late (10pm) and fairly hungry. Are there any good dinner options at that time in the City Centre area, or are we going to be grabbing kebabs on the corner (or worse still, a bag of crisps)? And not to knock kebabs -- we're not looking for anything super fancy, just delicious. I've looked at some restaurants' hours, but I don't really trust them -- just because a place is open til midnight doesn't mean they're serving food then.

Thanks all!

      It'll be a Monday night, in May, and we're staying at the Hotel Indigo at Waterloo and Blythswood, so around there would be ideal, but a bit of a walk isn't bad. We arrive that night into Queens St Station.

        hello, that's a hard one. 3 of the places I was going to suggest shut at 10pm. I think your safest bet is the Jamie's Italian which is actually only diagonally across from Queen st station across George Square or Anatolia a Turkish restaurant. I have not been but my friend has, they eat out a lot so it's a safeish bet and it's open till 1am.

          Thanks curious. I've been struck by the distinct absence of chatter about Jamie's Italian on this board, and took it as a sign that it might just be a tourist trap, but its good to know real people eat there too. I'd basically written it off (though I have to admit I do like watching him cook in his garden on TV, especially with Gennaro, and I'm a sucker for rustic Italian). I will check out the Turkish place too. Thanks!

            the Ho Wong is very close to your hotel, open til 11:30pm. Very good Chinese, not cheap, specialises in Seafood. Rick Stein seriously rates it.

              Thanks! Looks interesting, especially the duck. I'll check it out.

              You may wish to check out my recent review of the Manchester branch of Jamie's.


              Less than stellar.

                Ouch! Okay then, suspicions confirmed.

                  I have been thinking about this some more and think you should scrub my previous ideas. if you are willing to walk a bit or get a taxi then Asia style on st georges road will be open at that time. It's very good. It serves a mix of Malaysian and Cantonese dishes. Very good roti canai, salt and pepper prawns etc.
                  I have only been to Jamie's Italian once for lunch, it was passable but I had a couple of cocktails elsewhere so that always helps!

                  1. re: curiouseater

                    Asia Style is so right up my alley - I love love love roti canai. And it looks like its open til 2:30am. I think we have a winner!
