The very best Indian restaurant in Edinburgh

I have been going to this restaurant since they opened years ago but they have got better and better. I have now given up on Edinburgh curry restaurants in town and will not take a chance. My money will be spent in the Delhi Diner on Mayfield Gardens, Newington. Parking and buses are no problem... read more

17 of us descended on this little restaurant tonight and each meal was as good as the next. Lots of lovely fresh ingredients, tasty dishes and lots of it, great service and a reasonable price. Thanks once again to all the staff for a terrific meal.

Excellent food at affordable prices. Friendly and very attentive staff. The restaurant doesn't look much from the outside, but was very nice inside. Wide range of dishes to choose from and big portions.

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.
