At the heart of their legacy is the famous Mr Ali's Chicken Tikka Masala, said to be invented by the restaurant’s late founder, Mr. Ali.

A blend of spices and rich, creamy sauce, it has made itself a favourite not only in Glasgow but around the world.

The restaurant says that its success is "deeply rooted" in the loyalty of its customers - some of whom have chosen to commemorate their love for Shish Mahal with special 60th-anniversary tattoos.

A spokesperson said: "This unique expression of loyalty and appreciation underscores the deep connection between Shish Mahal and its customers, highlighting the restaurant’s enduring impact on their lives.

"Shish Mahal has played a pivotal role in shaping Glasgow’s reputation as a hub for diverse and high-quality cuisine. By introducing authentic Indian flavours and pioneering new dishes, Shish Mahal has inspired countless restaurants and chefs, contributing to the city’s culinary renaissance.
