The staff were very friendly and the main aim is to make the dinning experience as pleasant as they can for each and every diner. The food was present well and tasted very nice. If visiting the area again will definitely be back.

From its location in a former whisky bond close to the waterfront at Leith, Britannia Spice has been attracting Edinburgh's diners to its multi-ethnic blend of exotic eastern cooking since 2000. Drawing on the traditional cuisine of India, Bangladesh, Thailand and Nepal, the critically acclaimed dishes are served in a nautically-inspired interior with an airy yet intimate ambience.
