We enjoy Indian food so we decided to try this small restaurant near our B&B. The food was average but the biggest problem was the staff who hovered at the bar during our whole meal - we were one of two tables being served. The staff's friends also visited during our meal walking back and forth past our table, speaking... More

Stayed down the road in Craigmillar Park last week; this Indian & Bengali hidden gem in Mayfield Gardens was but a short stroll from our hotel.

The uninspiring frontage hides a delightful restaurant... More

Usually order takeaways from here but thought I'd try the restaurant and it was really pleasant. The food is great and the staff are really friendly and attentive. My only issue is the portion sizes are a bit on the small side for the amount you pay.

Some of the best Indian food we ate while in the UK. The atmosphere is nice, and small and cozy. The owner is present, making sure everything is perfect for all the patrons. Nice to walk from our bed and breakfast a few yards to grab a quiet meal.

We were expecting a different kind of Indian food coming from Canada. Food was good, just not what we were expecting. We found everything quite sweet.

Went to this restaurant in recommendation of B&B owner, was a little unsure when we first arrived as it looks like a small takeaway. However I was happily surpised the staff were great helpful but not hovering about it was quite when we went (early Friday evening). The food was really tasty and plentiful, I would recommend this to anybody.

Again visited the Delhi Diner for dinner and was delighted. Have not had a bad meal yet and I don't think I will. They care what you order and tell you if it would be too hot or too mild etc. Very attentive and wine delicious. Can't wait to go back . Well done guys. AVRIL and Wilma from Edinburgh
