From its location in a former whisky bond close to the waterfront at Leith, Britannia Spice has been attracting Edinburgh's diners to its multi-ethnic blend of exotic eastern cooking since 2000. Drawing on the traditional cuisine of India, Bangladesh, Thailand and Nepal, the critically acclaimed dishes are served in a nautically-inspired interior with an airy yet intimate ambience.

We were staying next door at the Holiday Inn and the reception gave us a discount voucher. So pleased we chose to have dinner here. The food,service and atmosphere was all perfect,one of the best Indian meals that I've had in a long time,I thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Nice location- but I was sadly disappointed, everything looked the same - 6 meals were brought to the table and honestly they all could have been the same thing !! Very disappointing

I've eaten here before and it was such a horrible night and you can park here easily. So we did. Very run of the mill food expensive for what you get. Nobody in the restaurant when we went in. But a few couples arrived later. Staff very nice but cheap coca cola and G&Ts. Untrained barman. Also toilets need looking... More

After my visit to Britannia Spice I can say with certainty that I will be back many more times. Great food and service! The menu has a good range and the seating is spacious with nautical themed décor (it's on the coast). Top marks to the staff there, well done and see you soon!

We were in the same night as Kay Fraser review and it was bordering on the ridiculous. Waiting time 2 hours, extremely poor service, people getting wrong orders, 2 couples walking out, a couple taking the manager to task and my daughter being sick in Asda 10 minutes after we left. Our food came after it had clearly been left... More

Generally a good curry, restaurant feels a bit behind the times and service could have been a little faster but overall wasn't a bad experience.

I visited this restaurant with my friends and it really was a discovery for me. I loved the setting, so appropriate given the location (next to the Britannia Yacht). The decor was evocative yet not overpowering, in fact the sails were a great idea to give tables some privacy. The service was fantastic, with the staff really attentive to our... More

Attentive staff. Helpful, quick, efficient service. Food was good. Served very hot (temp) and even plates were heated so you could enjoy conversation and the meal remain warm. Good atmosphere and condition of restaurant. A range of cuisines available.
