The most awful curry I have ever had. Luke warm, insipid and mainly sauce. It was supposed to contain lamb, I'm sure some was in there. Somewhere. I'm just not certain. The sauce was awful, nothing like any curry I ever tasted before. I will not recommend or go back. Simply awful. Yuk.

Good quality food with reasonable price. We went there on 27th Dec 2016 and after finding that this is the only restaurant where tables are available. However the food was good with reasonable price. The quality of naan can be improved as the naans and rotis were very hard to chew,

No airs and graces, no drinks license either, so relies on the food (as any restaurant should) and the lure of bring your own, with no corkage. And it delivers! Out with some regular curry eaters and we all thought it was really good. Good poppadums, hot fresh naan, and flavourful curries. Had my standard chicken madras, and it really... More

If you are in need of Indian for around North Bridge area of Edinburgh, you won't go far wrong here. Good food, nice attentive staff and although there is no alcohol licence, you cane buy your tipple at the Brass Monkey 2 doors away.

We went for an afternoon buffet. We just missed the 3 pm cut-off but the manager let us in anyway. Great choice of dishes. Very tasty and excellent value for money.

Another visit to the Red Fort and a buffet this time. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pakora had run out but a request brought more. The food was nice and hot and very tasty. Had to go round three times to try it all. Verdict - excellent as usual. Highly recommended.

I've been there few days ago. The food was amazing, one of the best I've ever ate. The service is fast and very warm. If you took the menu for two people, the quantity of food is unbelievable; so tasty and good. I really recommend it!! A really good place to eat! Well done!

The name is decidedly Indian. Rest all is a fraud. This place DOES have Indian dishes on menu but they ARE NOT ANYTHING that the dish is supposed to be! We ordered four items-each worse than the other, ended up leaving most on the table. Interestingly, it did not bother the manager,who also doubles up as a disinterested waiter. As... More

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
