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.

Both of us had steaks, both were cooked to perfection. The service was quick, efficient and friendly. The value for money well worth it

Stayed at local Travelodge so enjoyed a takeaway on Saturday night. I was not disappointed. Onion Bhaji, Lamb Pasanda, Mushroom Pillau Rice, Paratha all Top Notch Quality> Price for Cobra Beer (Takeaway) was excessive, so declined.

Was taken her by a friend who previously had been taken here by friends. Had dinner on a quiet weekday evening. The lack of many other customers made me a bit concerned at first but the friendly and helpful service put us at ease. When the food came it was excellent. Each dish was well flavoured, not overly oily, and... More

Nearest restaurant to the Cameron Toll Travelodge. The food was great and the service spot on. Would visit again next time I'm in Edinburgh.
