We welcome you to Glasgow’s Iranian inspired cafe/restaurant – Chaakoo Bombay Cafe.
The sister restaurant of Topolabamba Mexican Kitchen, Chaakoo Bombay Cafe looks forward to taking guests back in time to experience the incredible flavours, smells and atmosphere of a classic Iranian cafe. The original Bombay Cafes, otherwise known as Irani cafes, were opened by the Persian & Iranian immigrants who came to India in the 19th Century. Irani Cafes were popular for Irani Chai tea and a melting pot menu of Classic Iranian grill dishes and Classic Bombay dishes. They were frequented and endorsed by students, taxi drivers, ladies of the night and lawyers akin, as the world passed by outside. In the 1950s, 350 Irani Cafes existed and now today, only 25. At Chaakoo, we have strived to keep the feel and experience as similar as possible, complete with a little added extra.
Following the success of our City Centre restaurant, we look forward to opening in Glasgow's West End at the end of October!
Enjoy your visit, whether you pop in for a Chai, Bombay Mule or Butter Chicken curry. THERE ARE NO RULES!
