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.

... 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.
