Our host at the Barony House recommended this restaurant and it was so good, we think of it as one of the top meals we had in Scotland. Yes, that good. The waiter was very patient with us as we are not very experienced in ordering Indian food off a menu -- he was helpful and we enjoyed his recommendations.... More

We had the pleasure of eating at Delhi Diner during a recent trip to Edinburgh, and it was among the best Indian food I have eaten. The food was cooked perfectly, and came in a prompt manner served by very welcoming staff. try the Jhal Bhuna, it is delicious.

This place does not look much to the world and had we not been recommended it by our B&B host we would certainly not have gone there, but we were so delighted with our meals! Food was really tasty, so we actually went back for a second visit. They could however work a bit on the lightning to make it... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside but inside it's modern and stylish. The food was excellent! I had lamb, my husband had chicken. We both had great meals. I would recommend this restaurant highly.

Delicious, fresh dinner here. Had lamb tikka (tasty but a little dry), a chicken murgh dish that was excellent, along with garlic naan and sides of spinach and basmati. Flavors were spectacular, ambiance was serene. Recommend this local favorite.

Having arrived late in the evening, we headed out for a small bite and found extremely delightful service...and good food...at Delhi Diner. Quick service of a hot, and ample meal...with the always wonderful aroma's that accompany South Asian cuisine, we relaxed and enjoyed a great meal...then had the great pleasure to spend about 15 minutes with one of the waits...

A small but very clean Indian style restaurant with great food! The staff is very friendly and if you are unfamiliar with Indian cuisine they will help you order. Prices are very reasonable and they have beer and wine.

Came on the recommendation of our BnB owner and were pleasantly surprised. We arrived early and were the first customers of the evening--but restaurant was almost full by departure time. The menu reflected a good variety of Indian food in different styles. The food was excellent. It was delivered timely and portions are substantial. The naan was perfect, as was... More

We visited on a Friday night whilst through in Edinburgh at the Fringe. There were seven of us in our party and we prebooked a table. The restaurant was fairly busy, but when we arrived, we were served drinks quite promptly and a waiter took our order. The food then took over an hour to arrive, during which time, another... More
