What a wonderful surprise - the food was delicious and the service was at just the right level of attentiveness. We were there for three hours chatting and enjoying our meals and they did not bother us - just kept an eye on us and when we needed anything were right there to get whatever we wanted - absolutely a great find.......:)

As a regular visitor to Edinburgh I have eaten in Shamoli a few times and always the food and service is super.

The Thai soup is hot and stunning. The Indian curries are fantastic - authentic (as I have travelled in India) and not too hot & spicy.

Staff are warm, welcoming and very helpful. Good attentive service without being fussy.

The place is one floor up - and as a result does not seem as busy as it deserves to be.

We went out for dinner with a friend and the place looks great. The only thing I have to say is that they share the stairs to enter the restaurant with a tour operator but this is forgotten as soon as you get inside the restaurant. Nice, new, classy and clean this is how I would describe my first impression. They have a very large menu which combines two different types of food. You can get either Indian cuisine or Thai cuisine or mix them. I went for Thai and it was delicious!! I will definitely go our again!!! The atmosphere was great, we had a great service pleasant without being overwhelming and allowing us to have some times between courses.
I will definitely recommend this to some friends.
