The variety on the menu, especially fish dishes was very refreshing. The monk fish starter is really excellent.

Location of this restaurant is very convenient, just off the city center. The food served quickly and was nice and tasty. it wasn't expensive and we decided it would be on our list for family dinners. Staff trained very well.

We were very lucky to find this restaurant by chance. We've eaten Indian food around the world and this was exceptional. Amit Singh, the manager was a great host, and went out of his way to help with gluten / dairy / egg free options and made the experience very easy. The rest of the staff were very helpful and...

go to this restaraunt a few times a year when staying in the excellent Hilton round the corner. My most recent meal here was one of the best. Huge portions and good quality. I ordered chicken tikka with a medium curry sauce that was just right! Staff friendly and helpful and price very competitive.

Excellent place to eat, very nice atmosphere with great and friendly staff upon arrival. Prices are about £10 a main but it is very filling and great tasting. Don't be put off by negative reviews. Highly recommended.

Next i ordered lemma matar kadai, and naan, naan was nice, but the main was lacking spices and salt. Very odd taste to it. Lots of matar (peas)... More

Very busy place. Staff are efficient and helpful. Our table was booked for 8.30pm and when we sat down I was left with the impression that the waiters were rushing us to order. It was a little off putting. My starter was a little underwhelming but my main course was very good indeed. Draft Kingfisher was cold and refreshing. Prices... More

I think this place speaks for itself. Has been in Edinburgh for many years and everyone knows the babe and reputation. Very nice inside, friendly staff and great food. The draught coca cola is just heavenly. A+++
