Fine. But not great. The paratha was good, but the curries were underwhelming. The order was ready to pick up on time, and staff were very friendly.

Always good food, plenty of meat in the dishes, unlike some. Never fail to delivery the highest standard. .

This is our favourite local curry take away. We order from here once a month or so. I quite like to portions size, and if you use the £5 off when you spend more than £25, it becomes a great value.

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighborhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
