My first visit and I am sure I will be back. Had a delicious prawn dish and shared a bottle of wine with friends. It's a lively place so not a venue for a romantic dinner for two!

We came late on saturday night and the place was crammed, which is often a good sign. We decided to wait and soon got a table. We asked the waiter about the chef's special - and got no answer but a facial expression. Which means we had to try it! This was hands down the best punjabi meal I have... More

Throughly enjoyed the business lunch which as well as being exceedingly tasty was a very reasonable £7.95 for 3 courses. Highly recommend.

Food is delicious, and the staff is extremely friendly and efficient! My mother got a birthday cake with fireworks and song, which was absolutely fantastic! This is definitely a place we will visit, next time we're in Edinburgh!

Came here with my partner on Saturday night and could not fault this place. From arriving at the Restaurant to when we left we were made to feel welcome. My partner asked for champagne on arrival and they sat us away at window away from middle of restaurant so it was nice and intimate. Our waiter was lovely!! I wasn't... More

Been going here for over 13 years. It is the best Indian in Edinburgh. Food top notch, friendly service and a nice relaxing atmosphere. Had fish pakora followed by madras, peshwari nan along with a pint of Kingfisher - delicious! Thank you again to all staff for a wonderful meal and look forward to going back.

From the moment we arrived the staff were fantastic from taking our coats to taking care of our order. We asked for recommendations for 2 curries one lamb and one chicken, the staff member said leave it up to him and we were certainly not disappointed. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and very reasonably price for the quality of... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
