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+++

Staying at the Tune Hotel in Haymarket Edinburgh. Looked on trip advisor for Indian Food in the area but unfortunately Haymarket was not an area option. Not knowing the area we decided to hit the street. Heading towards the centre we had only walked 100m and found this restaurant. Looked busy and vibrant and we weren't disappointed. Great welcome, friendly... More

We visited in early August mainly to see the Military Tattoo. We spotted this restaurant on our way from the airport to our hotel, and knew we would have to visit. From the minute we arrived we had brilliant and friendly service, the interior was lovely, clean and smart. The food when it was arrived was exactly how we knew... More

Smart looking Indian. Mixed crowd of tourists, locals and business people in Haymarket area of the City. Food came promptlly and was tasty with generous portions. Service was discrete and prompt. No real downsides.

Ordered a vegetarian option which lacked flavour and was equivalent of something you could buy in the supermarket. Nan bread was good though. Service good but sadly the food lets this once great restaurant down.

We went here on the basis of reviews by travelers here. I must say that many of my Trip Adv friends have not tasted authentic Indian food if they actually liked the food served here. First there is no flavor ... add to this some raw chicken and sprinkle it withe a snobby attitude (usually found in top class french... More

I have been to many Indian restaurants but have to say this is one I will not be returning to. It was completely lacking in flavour, both the main course and side dish, the nan bread was the best thing about the meal. The main course plates were brought to the table before we had finished our starter. We left... More
