A simple pleasure

It's been in Haymarket for decades and remains an excellent place. If only more restaurants just provided good food, promptly served and staff who don't keep checking on you all the time but are polite and efficient. The menu doesn't overwhelm you.

It's been in Haymarket for decades and remains an excellent place. If only more restaurants just provided good food, promptly served and staff who don't keep checking on you all the time but are polite and efficient. The menu doesn't overwhelm you. They provide carafes of nice wine, reasonably priced and the view streetside is most distracting!

I am not an Indian restaurant fan as I can't eat hot and spicy......but my Edinburgh resident friends love this place hence the visit! They do have non Indian food, but was persuaded by the manager to have a mild chicken Korma and it was great. Do love garlic naan tho and it was very good. Great staff who know... More

I'm so lucky having Omar's just around the corner from the flat. Visit at least one a fortnight and the food is consistently good. Tasty, good portions and always willing to explain dishes Easy to get to - right by Haymarket station. It's a favourite place because everything is good

We went here with a party of 10 and every dish was great. The main I had packed so much flavour and the naan breads were epic. If you are looking for a fantastic tasting curry you will not go far wrong with Omar Khayyam's. Very impressed.

Great place to eat. The restaurant is centrally located in Haymarket which is not far away from the city. Excellent food and efficient staff . A very good ambiance and the food is served in sufficient portions.

Great tasting food, naan breads are huge but delicious. Rice is small so I would recommend 1 of each to share between two. Staff are very friendly and efficient at cleaning up and giving out dishes. Well worth a visit.

Went here on a business trip during the busy Edinburgh Festival season. OK food in generous portions and a pleasant enough setting - nothing wrong with it but I won't be rushing back.

Well! Why did it take me so long to return? Having last eaten in this restaurant about 10 years ago it sort of fell of my radar as other places closer to home became my regular Indian restaurant haunts. We dined there on Saturday evening on the recommendation of my son who had recently visited with a group from work.... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
