Restaurant of the week: Tigerlee, 224 Main St, Ballieston

Tigerlee, Baillieston

Chinese cuisine dates back four thousands years, with evidence of noodle dishes found in the upper reaches of China’s Yellow River.

Location

Right on Ballieston’s main street, making it very easy to find – and it has a customer car park right out in front.

First impressions

It’s a lovely little bustling Chinese and Thai restaurant. On face value, visually, Tigerlee is a plain-looking restaurant, but this is a hidden gem and booking is a must.

Service

We were greeted by a smiling, friendly waitress who quickly showed us to our table and offered to talk us through the menu.

Menu

The good news is that there’s loads to choose from… the bad news is that it all sounds so delicious you’ll be pushed to choose just one dish. From sweet and sour and stir fries to curries and king prawns, all the traditional favourites are there, and much more besides.

Taste

We both opted for spare ribs to start, followed by shredded crispy chilli chicken and salt and chilli chicken with fried rice and noodles on the side. The mains had just enough chilli to give them a little “kick” but weren’t too hot for our tastebuds. The children had chicken nuggets and chips. Everything was piping hot and delicious, leaving happy, well-fed diners all round.

Ambience

Tigerlee might be a small restaurant but it packs a big punch and attracts a large crowd. The family business has built its reputation on word of mouth. In fact, it came recommended to me by a friend – and it’s easy to see why. Simple, tasty food in a nice cosy, relaxed environment- what’s not to love?

Price

Our bill came in at just over £69 for two adults and two children, which I think is pretty reasonable. There are lots of set menus to chose from, which give even better value for money.
