Hopefully this review will be useful for parents.

I visited this on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews, and I concur with those who have awarded five stars. Good menu, reasonable prices for this type of food and our young daughter was made to feel very welcome. They have a small family room separate from the main restaurant, which in my view is... read more

A couple of months ago I reported that after 5 years of raving and recommending Itihaas as best Indian restaurant in Edinburgh & Lothians, I thought their own very high standards had slipped a little. I am delighted to report that after a visit on Saturday - it is back to its best! The welcome and service was warm and... More

Love the food in this restaurant but bit aggrieved at my last visit. Queried the drinks bill as it didn't seem right. Turns out we had been charged for beer that the people sitting at the table prior to us had ordered. It was taken off the bill and an apology given however don't quite understand how that mistake could... More

Our friends from around the world praise their food when visiting, either as eat-in or as a take-away for a gathering at home. They usually say the food is as good if not better than any they have tasted, wherever they come from.

Decent takeaway menu, with lots of choice for meat-eaters and vegetarians. Food usually high standard. Can be slow to deliver in busy periods, so best to collect if possible. Restaurant also good.

Had many takeaways from this Dalkeith establishment, but this was our first visit. For starters, the missus had chicken samosa, and I had a tasty and spicy haggis pakora. Main were: lamb bhuna for me with pilau rice and a side of bombay potato, the wife had chicken bhuna. Both were excellent. Service fine, ambience ok, but I thought it... More
