Just a short walk from my hotel, early evening so the restaurant was very quite, the food was very good both the starter and the main would most certainly come back again.

... this is essentially a takeaway with tables and thus suitable for refuelling rather than a special meal. The service and food were good, but the prices were higher than I would expect to pay for a similar dining experience elsewhere.

This restaurant was not far from our hotel. Although the restaurant had no other patrons while we were there (it was a Wednesday night) - it was certainly not to do with the food or the service. The food was served quickly and efficiently, it was delicious and hot! The waiters were all attentive and very interested in chatting to... More

The food here is definety tasty but you can get good if not better Indian food everywhere else in Edinburgh. Unfortunately here, it is way overpriced and servings are tiny. So expect to pay A LOT for extra portions or rice or meat just so you can actually leave the place feeling full. And don't even Bother desserts please.

I visit Edinburgh on business every few months and I always make sure I have a meal here. I often have the Chicken Balti with mushroom rice, always excellent. On my last visit in late February I was staying in the City but a trip to the Delhi Diner was well worth the 35 minute walk! I thoroughly recommend it.

This was one of the closest local restaurants to Cameron Toll travelodge where we were staying for a couple of nights so we decided to eat here following seeing the excellent reviews. All the travelodge staff spoke very highly of the restaurant so we hoped we were in for a treat and we were absolutely not disappointed. The restaurant is... More

I cannot complement the food or the delightful staff enough. I eat here about twice a month with my family and also use the delivery service. Although the restaurant is small they have made good use of the space and it is always clean and tidy. The food is delicious. I have tried many Indian restaurants across Edinburgh but the... More
