RESTAURATEURS Cook Gill and Indi Singh are to open their biggest Glasgow outlet to date at the former site of fish restaurant Harry Ramsden’s.

Scheduled to open as SLTN went to press, the new Glasgow restaurant is expected to cater for 200 covers.
The restaurant will be the third Cook and Indi’s World Buffet to open in the city and the seventh in the expanding chain.

The new Glasgow outlet is expected to cater for 200 covers when it opens this month.

The restaurant will stick to the established World Buffet concept, offering a fixed price ‘all you can eat’ buffet menu starting from £5.99 per person.
Over 100 dishes are set to be on offer at the new Glasgow unit, ranging across Indian, Japanese, Chinese, sushi, Italian, Spanish and Mexican cuisines.
Cook Gill, co-founder of the World Buffet chain, described the Harry Ramsden’s unit, which is located on Paisley Road opposite entertainment complex Springfield Quay, as a “landmark premises” at a “prominent location”.
Gill said securing the unit “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 will offer diners even more dishes from around the world and feature an extensive live buffet laden with fresh produce, including a special halal meat counter,” said Gill.
“A live grill will feature everything from piri-piri chicken to barbecue beef burgers – whilst the heritage of the site will be acknowledged by the creation of a special ‘Harry’s Fish & Chips’ counter.

Our new Glasgow restaurant will offer diners even more dishes from around the world.

“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.”
Cook and Indi’s chain of buffet restaurants was formed by Gill and Singh in 2011.
The company now operates restaurants in Hamilton, Johnstone, Darnley and Bishopbriggs as well its other Glasgow outlets on Sauchiehall Street and Renfield Street.
The Harry Ramsden’s fish restaurant chain continues to operate in Inverness, Livingston and Larbert.
