I went on a city break having ordered Tesco Clubcard vouchers, and it was well worth it. The owner was doing the front of house, and spoke to all of the customers as though they were family, and really made you feel welcome. The food tasted amazing, and the tapas style meant that sharing dishes and trying new foods was... More

My husband and I used our Tesco clubcard voucher here so it was even cheaper than anticipated. BYOB is brilliant and we liked the tapas style, allowing us to choose more dishes and taste more. My husband loved his lamb dish and for this we will be back!!!Be prepared for a tiny restaurant (about 12 seats..sorry if I underestimated but... More

Been going here since I first moved to Edinburgh. They used to be across the road beside the blind poet but they downsized recently to the place they are in now. Good call. The menu hasn't changed which is great. It's more cosy now. Last time we went we were 15 and took up the whole restaurant but still had... More

I went to dinner with my partner as we were staying in the area. It seemed nice and cosy. I got up to wash my hand, but i really got put off by the toilet, as to how unclean it was, and seeing the kitchen as i came out of the toilet it made it even worse, didn't look very... More

I came here as part of a group for a family birthday celebration, and had a lovely night. Tapas size portions just the right size to allow me to sample a few different dishes, which were all delicious. I would come back again, I am sure this may be a port of call with friends during the festival months!

Searching for Indian food in Edinburgh on a Saturday evening, we came across this small but very warm and cozy restaurant. Although we had not pre-booked a table we were immediately welcomed and seated, before the very attentive hostess continued to explain us the principle(s) of their Indian tapas menu. Being allergic to gluten, I asked for advice on which... More

We were very sceptical when arriving at this restuarant as it is very small, but my fears were unfounded ! The host Seema is the most friendly and informative host you could ever find. My husband and I were there with our Son & Daughter in Law and none of us had tried tapas Indian food before although we frequently... More

Me and my partner went here on our anniversary and couldnt fault it at all. Such a small restaurant but it was really really nice. Loved the fact that it was tapas style with indian food. Could have more than 1dish, made it different and so much better than any other restaurants i've been to. The price was very good,... More
