The atmosphere, surroundings, service and food were first class. This was my first visit and I'd definitely go again. The service was attentive, warm and friendly. The curry was out of this world and presented beautifully.

I was really disappointed with this restaurant. From the outside it looked really special but it wasn't. The waiting staff were very friendly and there was a really extensive menu. However, it took ages for the food to arrive. It was ok but the portion was small and very expensive for what I got ):

Bit of a rush on the evening as was eating en route to the hotel, so stuck to the main course only. Attractive decor and the staff in cavalry uniform, add the good food and it not only looks the part, it is the part! Went for a Kashmiri dish, which is a favourite. Very tasty. Service was good and... More

My wife and I had dinner here on a Monday evening in early June. It was quiet and we were seated promptly and at a nice table by a window looking onto the street. Very efficient and attentive service. This is set in an older building that has been well kept up and has a nice feel to it. Linen... More

I don't understand what's happened with this restaurant but sadly I cannot recommend. Beautiful building but food sub standard and service poor. Like many others I thoroughly a good, authentic curry but did not experience that here. Please improve and we will be back

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.
