Last time we were in Glasgow walking to our usual Sunday lunch eaterie, the Kama Sutra Restaurant in Sauchiehall Street, we spotted Cook & Indi’s World Buffet. We decided to give it a try. It cost £9.99 all day on a Sunday.
Exterior of Cook & Indi’s World Buffet in Glasgow
The restaurant interior is decorated with various wooden panels. We requested a booth at the back of the restaurant The waiting staff had to check with the manager if we could sit at the booth, as it could’ve seated six and there were only four of us. Fortunately, we were permitted to sit in the booth which was spacious and quiet, ideal for a family get-together.

There was a selection of Chinese, Thai, Italian, Indian and Japanese food. I didn’t try any of the Italian food or the Japanese Sushi.
Selection of starters at Cook & Indi’s World Buffet in Glasgow
My favourites were the Tempura (Fried) Vegetables and the Prawns in Garlic Sauce.
Indian Selection at Cook & Indi’s World Buffet in Glasgow
The chicken Indian main courses were disappointing as the chicken didn’t have much flavour; I wondered if the pre-cooked meat had been added to the sauce. The quality of the lamb was excellent, no fat or chewy bits.

Once the restaurant became busier, there was a bit of a bottleneck at the ice-cream freezer, which was located at the narrowest part of the passageway around the main buffet.
Desserts at Cook & Indi’s World Buffet in Glasgow
The ice-cream was very good but a couple of the desserts were too sweet for my taste.
The staff were attentive and our used plates were cleared away quickly. The toilets were very clean with an attractive bronzy effect around the mirrors.
Was I glad that we’d deviated from our usual restaurant? Yes, I did enjoy the wide selection of food at Cook & Indi’s World Buffet. The quality of the food was generally good.
Update 19 January 2014 – We had an excellent Sunday lunch at Cook & Indi’s World Buffet. I particulary enjoyed the Shrimp Thai Curry and the Carrot Cake.
