Made to feel very welcome on arrival. This is a nice restaurant, but not quite the traditional Indian that you would expect e.g. 80's rock music being played. The staff all had fantastic uniforms on, that really added to the atmosphere. We both went for the Club Dinner option, which is a set price of £28 each. This included a... More

We were a party of 8 in Edinburgh for the rugby on Sat 12th Nov so thought it best to book the Saturday night meal well in advance. I booked by phone over 2 months earlier and confirmed the booking in the week prior to the date. On arrival there were lots of people waiting but we were directed down... More

Although we booked, a long wait for food, but it was an International rugby night and friendly staff did their absolute best. Food was very good although a couple of errors on order but too hungry to complain. Would definitely go back

We booked a table for a rugby match day months ago, knowing that the city can be busy. Arriving at 7.30, there seemed to be no regard for bookings or the diary and a walk in table of 10 were taken ahead of us. We were finally seated at 8.40, after waiting around with no explanation from staff other than... More

We came here after watching a Scotland rugby match and we weren't the only ones! The food was excellent and the service good. We were charged for a naan that we hadn't received but this was rectified without issue.

Hello! What a night to dine at the Indian Cavalry Club. With every table booked for the whole night the atmosphere really is electrifying. Please accept my apologies for the naan charge by offering the opposite. The next time you're in, let us know and we'll give you a naan on the house (complimentary, not on the roof, clearly). This...

On entering the restaurant we were greeted by a friendly and courteous waiter, immaculately dressed in a very smart uniform. The restaurant is decorated to a high standard, crisp white table cloths, smart branded dishes added to the feeling of quality. The quality of service was extremely high, attentive and courteous. The food was delicious, highly recommended , you will... More

Your review paints a such a vivid image of the scene. Excellent writing, you must be a novelist, no? I would've enjoyed reading further food descriptions but you've left the ending open, a wonderful touch. We do hope to see you again and thanks for taking the time to write such a fantastic review!

We were on a weekend visit to Edinburgh to celebrate a graduation. Found this restaurant on the first night and found it so good that we returned the following day. The service was excellent and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The food is delicious. If you have a sweet tooth, I would heartily recommend the home made Indian ice cream.

Booked a table last Friday night (28th October) at 7pm. There were only about 10 people in the the restaurant and it felt like a wake. Food arrived promptly and to order, however in terms of flavour my wife observed that it was nothing more special than our local carry out. I agreed. Service was polite and prompt but I... More

Thanks for writing a review. Oh no! We're sorry to hear the atmosphere wasn't to your tastes but then again, no one wants to walk into a funeral on their Friday night out. We accommodate all diner requests and sometimes this involves turning the music off or dimming the lights a bit. We are usually fully booked on weekends and... More

Excellent service and delicious food. Couldn't fault, especially Johnny Ahmed, the General Manager. The quality and flavours of the curries is excellent. we visited last year whilst on holiday in Edinburgh so this was a return visit.

Thanks for your review! We're glad your mum enjoyed her birthday at the Cavalry Club :) Another mention for the swaggering Johnny I see? He really does go the extra mile to ensure that standards are nothing short of perfection. We're lucky to have him. Oh, I digress. Yes, please do visit again and next time have a drink on... 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.
