Nonya opened in April ’18 and within a week it was already a favourite with West Enders. The space itself is stylish without being pretentious, lots of dark greens and wood, with a beautiful basement bar.
Serving up incredible and authentic Thai, Malay and Chinese dishes, there is always something new to try. Marina O’Loughlin gave it a glowing review for the Sunday Times shortly after it opened, and very well deserved it was too.
On my first visit, they had the most wonderful coconut chicken gravy which accompanied their spring onion pancake. It was glorious. It has since left the menu but with every great dish that leaves, even greater dishes arrive.
The menu changes regularly and if you’re a lover of heat, this is the place for you. They recently introduced ‘Nonya Curry Shop’ on weekday lunchtimes where they will be selling one plate meals of meat and vegetarian curries with rice, and a noodle soup such as this curry laksa with prawns and chicken.
Their deep-fried peanut butter sandwich with condensed milk and peanut sugar must be one of the best desserts in Glasgow. Its sweet yet salty, crispy yet soft. Do not order it to share with your friends, you’ll just end up hating your friends! It is heavenly and not to be missed.
