This laid-back concept combines high-quality Japanese street food with beer and a chat with friends over some delightfully salted fried food for lunch and dinner. The curry store, which had been delayed due to Covid, is now open offering takeaway and collection. Customers will soon be able to order while sitting in too, with no need to make a reservation.

Dishes range from chicken or vegetable gyoza and chicken wing karaage to king prawn tempura or crispy duck salad well as the signature Katsu Curry menu with options of chicken, beef, wagyu, pork, duck, salmon, squid and tuna – all served with Katsu curry sauce, Miso soup and a choice of rice or udon noodles.

A Katsu Sando – named after the Japanese slang for sandwich – is also on the menu. This has been a phenomenon in Japan for decades and in Glasgow the rolling selection of Sando includes chicken, tofu, salmon and crispy duck, all served on Japanese milk bread with a side of curry sauce.

General manager Ming Huang said: KATSU Glasgow offers a small range of innovative, broadly Japanese-inspired dishes to Glasgow’s city centre. If you’re looking for some delicious food on the go, our menu is packed with must-have items and we all know how much Glaswegians have fallen in love with the famous Japanese curry.”

The 18-seater restaurant offers a mix of high and low seating to watch all the action of the venue from the sides. Inside, you’ll find bright interiors and graffiti murals, inspired by Japanese urban chic streets.
