Just along from Haymarket heading into town. Great range of curries, very attentive staff never had a bad meal here. My personal favourite is the pepper butter chicken

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who claimed it was the "best Indian restaurant in Edinburgh!" Now, whilst I don't know about that, having visited some sterling curry houses in Glasgow, I am very pleased to report that Omar Khayyam more than rose to the occasion. Our starters and mains were beautiful and the peshwari naan was... More

We came here twice in the space of three days as we enjoyed our first visit so much. The staff are attentive and very friendly (without being over the top) We went for the Handi dish which was lamb and spinach and it was divine! Tip would be that you don't need a starter and a main course (especially if... More

The service is excellent, good selection of wines and alcohol, food was great and they were ready to make dishes that were outside the menu as well. Ambiance is nice, not too noisy and the tandoori rotis were humungus and tasty. I went there twice in 3 days and enjoyed the experience on both occasions.

Hadn't been to Omar Khayyam's for a few years so was looking forward to this visit and wasn't disappointed. The restaurant is very close to Haymarket Station if you're arriving by train or tram. We walked from Princes Street - 10 mins. We were fairly early on a Saturday and had booked but didn't really need to as there was... More

Been here with my family. Felt welcomed upon entry. Being Indians ourselves the food tasted better than many others we have been to. Very generous portions overall and a great service.

My friend and I had the 3 course lunch and the food was delicious and really good portion sizes. The service is second to none. They make you feel very welcome and quite pampered. I will definately go back again

We visited this restaurant a couple of years ago when staying nearby and it was the best Indian food we have had. Last week we were again staying in Edinburgh and made a point of visiting again. The food was fantastic again.

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.
