On busy Dumbarton Road, Ga Ga is just one of the many indie restaurants that have made Partick a must-visit for hungry foodies.
Exposed brick, classic original tiles and simple yet chic accessories give the kitchen and bar a warm, laidback vibe. With a mixture of booths, high stools and larger tables, there’s plenty of seating options.
Friendly and attentive, the service is first-rate. The staff were happy to explain the menu, answer questions, and our order was taken promptly. Truly service with a smile.
The South-East Asian inspired menu is filled with fresh ingredients and flavours, designed by local chef Julie Lin, who ran popular (but sadly now closed) south-side eatery Julie’s Kopitiam. Small sharer-size dishes sit alongside larger mains and sides, as well as a small selection of sweets. The staff are knowledgeable about dietary requirements and allergens, so everyone can order with confidence.
After sipping on pints of Ga Ga’s very own draught pilsner, we decided to pick a few dishes to share. First up was a portion of succulent fried chicken followed by nasi goreng topped with a fried egg, and a creamy Sayur Lodeh veggie curry, as well as a side of jasmine rice and fries with Thai basil mayo. We demolished everything in minutes – if no one was watching we might have even licked the plates.
The ideal place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon, but equally perfect for date night.
Excellent for the quality. Starters are around £8, mains from £12.
P.S. Be tempted by a tipple from Ga Ga’s extensive cocktail menu – we recommend the signature strawberry daiquiri. Delish.
