Description: Not your usual Bangladeshi Indian restaurant, Zest is smart and modern with a terrific menu combining classic and inventive dishes. The decor in this bright, airy, centre-of-town shopfront is clean and open, with white walls, blond chairs, contemporary styling. The menu includes dishes like starter of Zest's own tandoori trout, main course of medium-spicy Jaipuri chicken with fried mushrooms, onions and capsicums with Punjabi masala in thick sauce. Peshwari naan and bhajis are excellent. The service is hip and friendly and the wine list well matched to the flavours. And yes, there is chicken tikka masala, if you must, but this is a great place for exploring new flavours.

Ignore the stupid tramworks outside.Light, bright decor and airy restaurant. Spotlessly clean.Great service with lovely friendly staff.Very tasty and flavoursome food. Looking forward to my next visit.
Prices are reasonable considering you are in the city centre.

We came into Zest from the cold and had an amazingly good warm meal. We have been craving Indian food ever since we got home.

Really good service and the food was lovely. I had expected to have some outstanding curries during our 5 weeks travelling in the UK but most were a disappointment. The food here was one of the two exceptions to that.

Very pricey and the food lives upto its name. I had ordered a spicy chicken dish and it literally had a thousand chillies in it. Popadums which I thought would be complimentary was charged at $4. Our most expensive dinner in Edinburgh.
