Found 16th Oct
I feel this restaurant deserves a mention on here for there truly amazing gesture. Anyone who is homeless gets a free meal on a Monday and Tuesday 3-4. Be great to hear if other places are doing this. But hats off to this restaurant in Glasgow. And by the way I’ve eaten in here myself and the food is amazing. *******Hope Admin can remove the additional info that has been posted*******

Wonderful gesture of helping those in need.

Government would be happy, someone is doing their job for them. While they’re busy wasting money. Heat added

And so it begins again the season of goodwill the next 8 weeks a bit early …And so it begins again the season of goodwill the next 8 weeks a bit early this year so lets all pat each other on the back for giving a crap vicariously through the deeds of others. Come late jan early march when it is cold as hell this will be forgotten as quickly as the people being used for free ads on here.

Cold.

Wonderful gesture of helping those in need.

As long as this nice gesture doesn't get too much publicity and they get swamped.
Don't Gurdwaras do this also?

Very nice post, worth visiting the restaurant the next time will be in Glasgow.

They do (much respect to the Sikh community). However, this is a business so all the more impressive.

What a wonderful thing to do.

Not the role of government at all...

These things are about personal responsibility, being charitable, and showing compassion, not about compulsion and carrying these things out as an obligation.

Nothing negative about it, it is realism! this pops up on here every year around this time an is never mentioned again for the next 10 months, the real negativity is people voting hot on something that is merely a pat on the back exercise. Give food to anybody all year and do not look for your ego to massaged because of it. Just do it and keep it to yourself, certainly do not try to use it as a marketing tool, capitalism at its absolute worst!! Using the poor to make the wealthy feel good about themselves (sickening) failing that they still think trickle down economics is not a failed load of nonsense. I am not entering into any discussion further from this so save yourself any typing, you think it is great, I think the whole system is a mess and that this is considered a good thing rather than something that should not EVER happen is sad!

The point of the post is hopefully people who are unaware of this offer can get a hot meal. We all agree in this day and age there should be no homeless or food banks but as country we are going back the way instead of forward.

Try spread the word of helping the homeless and why there shouldn’t be homelessness in this country rather that a personal dig.

It is so much easier to be nice simple personal mantra

The restaurant doesn't need publicity, it's one of the best in Glasgow. And the owner has been feeding the poor in Lahore for a few years. There are too many haters n cynical people commenting. Thank goodness for people like Muhhamad. And thank you trevisparky for posting glasgowlive.co.uk/new…643

Apart from the humanitarian side, is it not a responsibility of the government to take care the weaker members of the society, especially their citizens which the majority of them have serve this country?? Have to beg in order to survive?

Awesome food (even when you pay)

So the homeless may not see this... but you know what it's horrific cold horrible wet weather just now and someone that sees it on her might pass someone thats homeless in town and pass it on to them to let them know where they can get a hot meal!

Typical reactionary comment. It's like telling people who aren't kicking you in the face when you've fallen in the street that they well do eventually. You're the problem.

theres a difference between sitting outside a shop for 6 hours a day pretending to be homeless begging for money, and the actual homeless whom do not make themselves a pest by keep asking and pestering, you can tell if someone is genuine or not usually

Excellent idea. Heart warming to think that a business would do this. I just hope that there are no opportunistic people taking advantage of it!!

Lovely gesture. I'd eat in this establishment because I would like to give the owners my business.

Great food here. Refreshing to see such philanthropy too.
