We went there for a pre theatre dinner...we were offered popadoms and mango chutney, red onions and a yogurt dip.....this is a very normal starter in most Indian restuarants we go to....however the limited choice of main was disappointing.....I had chicken tikka masala, the chicken was tough and the sauce tasted of too much condensed tomato soup... My husband had... More

Popped in for an Indian meal at the end of our first day in Edinburgh and weren't disappointed. The menu selection was varied and house specialties available, so not the same as every other Indian restaurant. The staff were excellent & very attentive. Would recommend going if you're u. Edinburgh.

It was our first stay in Edinburgh and had not managed to find the place we were looking for, so as it was late on a Sunday we relied on a cab driver to find us somewhere to eat. It looks pretty good from outside but have had much better and cheaper curries elsewhere. The service was ok but the... More

The Baby Dosa was simply amazing - I had the chicken, but I'm sure others would have been equally as good. All of our meals were cooked to perfection and tasted fantastic. I have visited many many Indian restaurants over the years and I cannot think of one that served better food.

The food in this restaurant is amazing. The waiters couldn't be more friendly and efficient. The food was amazing and the portions are huge. It has to be the best Indian in Edinburgh!

Food was nice, however service was tired they forgot part of order a customer was arguing over bill. Also depending on how much you spend they put you in a dingy part of restaurant. Not for family staff not engaging they present food in a half measured way and the distant look on one of the waiters face after order... More

10 adults and 5 children for dinner. Good service, good food, chicken tikka was unexpectedly spicy (but good for that!), the okra was disappointing. Good options for children.

Thanks for leaving a review. We're glad to hear that your experience overall was a positive one. It's a shame to hear about the okra, our staff are always on hand to switch any dish that doesn't meet a diner's expectations, regardless of the reason.

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.
