Description: This new Indian restaurant in the centre of Edinburgh���s New Town has carved out a little niche for itself amongst the art galleries and antique shops along Dundas Street. Open for lunch and dinner, The Spice Pavilion attracts a well-heeled crowd of art lovers, and the interior ��� a modern space inspired by the rich colours of colonial India ��� is a stylish choice for both leisurely or business lunches and a romantic spot for evening meals. The kitchen���s philosophy is to take away the focus from heat and shift it to herbs and spices, giving the curries at The Spice Pavilion lovely fresh flavours which are complimented by an impressive range of wines from Australia and Italy.

“Great meal!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

While travelling in Scotland; we had accomodations on Dundas Street and walked by this restaurant going to Princes Street. We were in the mood for Indian Food and decided to stop in as it was 3 blocks from our Guest House. The Hostess was delightful and the waiter helpful. The menu had a range of regional Indian dishes and a couple Thai meals. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The restaurant is bright and well appointed. Would highly recommend to anyone going to Edinburgh.

“Excellent food & service !”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

We had been to Edinburgh on holiday & wanted to try an Indian Restaurant for dinner. I must say, this little place near the center of Edinburgh was worth the 15 mt walk from Waverly bridge. The food was so good that we returned the next day for dinner again. Not to forget the waiter was very friendly & service oriented. Highly recommended !

“Great Indian”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

We found this place on tripadvisor while looking for a good curry after a long golf game. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the food. The menu has many options and remained reasonable for a curry. I highly recommend the restaurant for a good curry in Edinbugh.

“Highly recommend”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We booked for a large group (38), which was almost the whole restaurant, and were given the option of a set menu for £17, or choosing from the main menu.

Many problems could have arisen from catering for such a large group, but the staff were friendly and attentive, the food was excellent, and perfectly spicy, and the drinks were great value.

To receive not a single grumble of complaint from such a large group is remarkable. My only observation is, I would have welcomed some background Indian music (although on this occasion, I doubt
we would have heard it over us)

I would definitely recommend this restaurant :)
