Food and drink
As predictable as any modern Chinese, the Amber Regent adds a little more spice to the mix with some authentic signature dishes that always keeps Glaswegians coming back time and time again. Widely known for sea bass, halibut, lobster and crayfish takes on dishes, Amber Regent serves up plates of classic aromatic crispy lamb, sliced venison in Mandarin sauce, fillet of beef in oyster sauce and barbecued shredded duck with Chinese vegetables.
When it comes to Chinese food I tend to go the traditional Friday night route and stick to staples like Sweet and Sour and Peking Duck.
The main restaurant is complimented by a range of quality oil paintings of Hong Kong and China Scenes by Stewart Vernon, one of Glasgow’s up and coming artists.
Friendly - and considering the huge number of dishes on display – the staff are very in tune with the kitchen.
A few minutes walk from both Central and Queen Street Stations, it close by from all city centre excursions.
The a la carte menu is expensive, with starters costing around £9 and mains £15, but its pre-theatre menu is worth a splurge.
