Regular visitor when on business in Edinburgh, usual Chicken Tikka Balti and mushroom rice, delicious as usual, always consistent , friendly staff and obviously popular as lots of takeaways flying out of the door. Thoroughly recommended if you in this area.

I normally don't enjoy indian food. After coming here I have changed my mind. These guys really know how to cook it with such wonderful flavour . I also like how they take the care to put a small heater under the food to keep it warm. The special rice was wonderful but my fav was the sweet and sour.... More

14 of us enjoyed a fantastic birthday meal at this lovely restaurant. As always the food was delicious, hot and plentiful, with no complaints from any of us. The staff were very attentive and surprised us all with their thoughtful card and gift to our father. Thank you for making our Dad's 80th a very memorable occasion.

One step above the average Indian in quality. You can pay a fair bit more up the hill at Voujon, which is perhaps a smidgeon better, but it's marginal.
