The food itself was tasty and the starters/mains had a good temperature however the sides were more of a luke-warm. Good service helped and you can tell it's popular as the place was packed!

Thanks for leaving a review. I'm sorry that the sides were not as you desired. Our waiting team are more than happy to replace any dish that doesn't meet expectations, immediately and of course without charge. I only wish you notified us of this issue when you were in the restaurant so we may have done something about it. Wishing... More

Have heard good things about this restaurant for years and so was happy when my son chose it for his birthday meal. We booked easily online. We arrived first service on New Year's Day so knew it would probably be a little quiet. Everything as expected - environment, service, food and the whole experience couldn't be faulted. We would certainly... More

Booked our table for 6 through the online system on their website, which was convenient but we were shoehorned onto a table which was clearly designed for 4 people. I protested but was told there was nothing else available so we had Hobson's choice really - despite the fact a table for 2 right next to us was unused while... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Please let me assure you that all of our tables are singular units designed to seat 2 diners.

Thanks for your review. I am very sorry that the waiter made a typo on the chip and pin machine which resulted in an overcharge. I am glad that your refund was processed immediately. This was a small error on the waiter's part but its implications were large and I understand how this can upset you. 90% of your review... More

We would have been frequent visitors to this restaurant in the past & went back last weekend for a nostalgic visit! Bad mistake. The food was mediocre at best but was affronted by our waiter. He would niot accept a credit card tip but insisted on a cash one - enough said. We left with a bad taste for more... More

When in Edinburgh we often choose this place as we know we will have an enjoyable meal. Service very good, attentive without being intrusive. Lots of choices on the menu and one of the few places that has homemade kulfi. A reasonable walking distance from Princes Street.

Time was that this was, hands down, the best Indian restaurant in Edinburgh if not southern Scotland. It's still good - a step above the average in fact. UK-indian cuisine has moved on in the meantime tho and while still good, it's no longer quite outstanding. I booked late on a cold December Saturday and was accommodated without problem. Opting...

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.
