Found Kismot on trip advisor on an unplanned trip to Edinburgh. The reviews did not disappoint. Good service, good food and friendly service. Thanks.

what a shame it did not reach our expectations. the food was bland as medium byriani that could have come out of a packet our waiter did not seem to understand when i queried if i had ordered a mild, all in all a waste of an anniversary dinner dont think we will be back

Second visit - and the food was even better this time around. Had mum's chicken curry (sold out last time) and it is delicious. Go the the Grog Shop along the road for some great beer (Kismot is BYO) and you have the makings of a great night. If only I lived nearer - 400 miles is a long way... More

Great food, very special service from The Man with the kilt. Not quite what you would expect at an Indian place. We loved it!

Second visit - back with the kids, who were fascinated with the idea of chocolate curries and marshmallow naan. Both met and exceeded their expectations. The staff were again welcoming and did everything they could ensure we had a great time. 'Team Shetland' were impressed and will be back.

If you like spicy food, this is the place. The portion size of a curry is overwhelming; I don't think I've ever finished half of one. The mixed pickle starter is also amazing. So is the price!

Great find after a busy rugby weekend. Was recommended by a friend and will return. Tradition menu and specials matched up with a solid wine list and attentive staff and service. A kitchen that obviously knows what it is doing, a great evening. Thanks
