I dined here on two consecutive nights because it was close to my hotel (the Hilton) and had positive reviews on Tripadvisor. The food was good and the wait staff were exemplary. On the first evening I tried the meat thali; on the second visit I ordered the vegetable pakora entree and the vegetarian thali. On both evenings I enjoyed... More

Our second visit after Rugby at Murryfield, a little wait but well worth it. Tables crammed together so not for romancing situation, but lovely friendly atmosphere, staff ever helpful, menu explained and suggestions made. Food meaty and spicy, try the four meat samples, vegetarian options multiple lovely and fresh, not some re cooked korma. Will be back next game, give... More

Being a vegetarian in a foreign country is a big challenge. One of the taxi drivers recommended Omar khayyam as one of the best Indian restaurants in Edinburgh. And indeed, the ambience, service, food is really good. We were struggling to have something spicy and salty (most of the food tastes slight sweet/tasteless) and finally we could eat happily here....

Been here twice recently and there is definite view that if you are in with male friends they assume you are going to buy lots of alcohol as they push it hard. Food is very average and my chicken pieces were small and a bit hard, re-cooked? Too much sauce left me with a plate of curry 'soup' once chicken... More

Comprehensive menu with a number of unusual options. You know you are in for a treat when the pickle tray has an excellent and interesting selection. Portions are generous and the peshwari naan easily does two. Service is crisp without being too intrusive. A good value meal out.

The restaurant was extremely busy, yet space was found for us within a minute of arriving. If I'm ever in town again, I would visit this place again. The food was really really good.
