A new restaurant and bar is set to bring Indian roadside cafe culture to the western end of town next month.
Rickshaw and Co will open its first location on Patrick Bridge Street offering a modern perspective on street food from the markets of India and Bangladesh.
The restaurant took two years to build after taking over the former Hyde cocktail bar to create a restaurant mezzanine with 120 seats, an outdoor terrace and a café-bar.
Drawing inspiration from their childhood and travels, co-owners Tushar Ahmed and Gulshan Soni want to bring the flavors, colors and culture of India to create a casual dining experience like no other in Glasgow.
