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

We stay not far from the Delhi Diner and regularly use it for takeaway meals. However, on this occasion we had friends visiting and decided to sit-in. As always, the service is excellent with the staff very attentive but not obtrusive. The food and ingredients are top quality with the meat in particular extremely tender and fat free. The sauces,...

This restaurant is quiet and out of the way, but the quality and the relationship between price and quality is outstanding. We live in Edinburgh and eat out Indian regularly. This is by far the best Indian we have found, and that means amongst at least 50 that we have tried. This recommendation is worth more than the one-night-trial that... More

Food here is really poor, service is not of a high standard and the restaurant is cramped. There are way better Indian restaurants in Edinburgh, in fact every Indian in Edinburgh is better than this. Just save your money and go elsewhere

We found this place by peoples recommendations on this site and what a lovely place this was. Don't be put off by the size of the restaurant as it is only small but extremely cosy would recommend that you book if you looking to eat Friday and Saturday evenings though just in case they are busy. The flavors of the... More

My first time in Edinburgh and I found this place on Tripadvisor. Not having many other options nearby the B&B I had booked I decided to give it a try. There aren't many Indian restaurants in my hometown, so I wasn't familiar with much of the menu. I ordered the lamb kebabs as a starter and tikka massalam for the... More
