First ate at this restaurant many years ago when it was on the other side of the road, and although it's moved it hasn't changed much. This is a very good thing. The food was easily as good as I remember and the new premises are light, airy and very conducive to a great eating experience. The service was good,... More

We travel almost constantly and subsequently eat out a lot and this was one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at. We shared six different dishes and every single dish was amazing. The prices were super reasonable. The chicken was the best I had ever had and the lamb was to die for. Everything was perfect about this... More

My parents recommended it from 20 years back and I was happy to see that it was still in buisness. We went there with some family and had a great time.

We started with poppadoms and then shared samosas and onion bhaji's - thank goodness we didn't have a starter each! Beautiful food and plenty of it. Excellent saag lamb, amazing prawn passander, delicious Tandoori chicken and daal. The service was excellent without being over powering and the price very reasonable.

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.
