Small but perfectly formed.

Fresh vibrant Indian food with fantastic staff. Good prices and a short walk from Appin House. Away from other shops, pubs etc. but worth the walk. Always find myself here at least one night when in Edinburgh.

Great, friendly service. Within 2 blocks of our B&B, Alba Hills. The staff were helpful and eager to please. This is a small establishment, but lovely atmosphere. A lucky find!

Another excellent meal in the Delhi Diner, this time I was up with a colleague, he had Chicken Tikka Masala which he said was delicious. Excellent portions for the price as well, loads of meat in the dish and a good bowl of rice. This is the best Indian restaurant in the area, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Excellent meal in a very nice, clean and well presented small restaurant. Service was polite, considerate and attentive. Large and comprehensive range of dishes available on menu. Prices are good value for portion sizes provided. Reasonable choice of very palatable and reasonably priced wines.

After a long day traveling, we don't want to go far away from our hotel and so we found the Dehli Diner. The interior is simple but really nice and stylish. The menu is gorgeous and the dishes are really great. I have had a Lamb Jalfrezi, hot! And it was really hot but still very tasty. I never have... More

I always use this restaurant when staying in Edinburgh, I often have the same meal, Chicken Balti with mushroom rice, the quality is consistently good every time I go (sometimes months apart). It's a small place but the service is excellent, I wouldn't go anywhere else for an Indian meal.
