The Tiki Bar & Kitsch Inn, Glasgow – A Review

Last week, I attended the book launch of Three Sisters Bake: Delectable Recipes For Every Day. It finished up just in time for dinner, so Alex & I, along with the lovely Bex from The Olive Dragonfly blog, decided to consult Yelp Glasgow for nearby hotspots!

We quickly decided to head on over to The Tiki Bar & Kitsch Inn on Bath Street for some tasty Thai food.
Yes, Thai food. I was a little confused when I first heard of this place, as I couldn’t quite get the connection between the Hawaiian-themed bar downstairs with a Thai restaurant upstairs. However, having been to this place, I can honestly say I no longer care! I loved it!

We headed straight upstairs to The Kitsch Inn for dinner. I love the decor,… beautiful deep green walls adorned with retro prints by Tretchikoff and J H Lynch, and prints from Mad magazine.

As for the food, I am a little predictable when it comes to Thai, ordering Chicken Satay as a starter and Thai Green Curry as a main course. The Chicken Satay was delicious! Lovely moist chicken with just the right amount of peanut sauce (hate it when you don’t get enough sauce). The Thai Green Chicken Curry was deliciously fragrant, coconutty, and generously portioned.
This was part of a pre-theatre deal, with two courses for £13.50.

The cocktail menu was right up my street… lots of delicious-sounding rum-based cocktails to choose from (Hungry Squirrel loves rum!). I had a Coconut Grenade in the end (reminiscing of my youthful days drinking Malibu & pineapple – classy chick). It was beautiful!

Cocktail Happiness!

Unfortunately we didn’t stop in The Tiki Bar downstairs for more cocktails this time… the purse strings and the 1 year old to look after in the morning just wouldn’t allow it! Cocktails are always pricey wherever you go, but these are worth it!

I will definitely be back at The Tiki Bar & Kitsch Inn… delicious food, amazing cocktail menu (with cocktails served in the most amazing pottery mugs by FireWorks Studio Pottery), super lovely staff, and fabulously kitsch surroundings!
