Fresh fish and vegan banquet for the festive season

Swadish, Glasgow’s first fresh fish and vegan-focused Indian restaurant, has launched its delicious four course Festive Banquet menu.

Kicking off with a shot of Swadish (a shot-glass of refreshing non-alcoholic welcome drink) together with a trio of premium poppadoms with home-made chutneys, the menu features such starters as: haddock; chicken; garlic chilli mushrooms, lamb seekh kebab and palak.

Mains include: turkey kofta curry; roasted tandoori chicken legs; lasuni daal; pilau rice and a nan basket while the decadent desserts on offer are a chocolate and salted caramel Christmas present or a homemade berry Kheer.

Chef Ajay Kumar said: “Featuring a selection of our most popular dishes, our Festive Banquet menu showcases our blend of traditional authentic Indian cooking methodologies with premium quality seasonal Scottish produce and ingredients to offer a uniquely modern cuisine to suit the contemporary, sophisticated palate.”

It might only have opened this summer but, as a number of rave reviews from diners sprouting across various media platforms will testify, Swadish (its name is a play on the Indian word ‘Swad’ (delicious) to mean ‘delicious dish’) has already carved out a place for itself in Glasgow’s cut-throat dining scene.

Located in a former fire station in the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City, Swadish is owned and operated by husband and wife team Ajay and Jas Kumar (daughter of renowned ‘Curry King’ Charan Gill MBE).

As the only Indian restaurant to specialise in fish, all Swadish’s fish is sourced daily from the local market. And, as a vegan herself, proprietor Jas presents her own favourite dishes on an extensive vegan menu – another first for an Indian restaurant in Glasgow.

In addition, Swadish’s meat, poultry and game recipes are exclusive and full of flavour. All Kumar’s sauces, marinades and masalas are made in his kitchen from the freshest and finest ingredients.
