The humble neighbourhood curry restaurant is a perennial favourite with the dining out public of Scotland, and the good people of Leith have as good a local option as any. Down near the Water of Leith, on Henderson Street close to where it becomes The Shore, Agoon Pani is a family-run Indian restaurant of some renown, which dedicates itself to serving the Edinburgh curry cognoscenti through their range of traditional favourites and lesser-known delicacies.
Agoon Pani does not accept Groupon vouchers with online bookings.
Food ok however the service dreadful. Had to ask for everything and shout orders as waiters didn't move from bar area. I wouldn't go back
the food and the service was excellent plus the restaurant was spotlessly clean I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a good meal anytime well done to all the staff
The food was very good and plenty of it but the restaurant was empty and that was on a Saturday night around 8pm. Apart from that we would go back.
If it’s a curry you’re after in the great city of Edinburgh, a few key elements need to come together to ensure a great night out. A bar stocked with plenty of Kingfisher and Cobra is always a plus point, and a phalanx of friendly waiters to greet you on arrival is also essential. So far, so Agoon Puri, where they have both of these in spades. A great location helps to, and again Agoon Puri come up tops, with an address to die for: on the corner of Henderson Street and The Shore, overlooking the Water of Leith.
The menu is the most important element to consider, of course, and Agoon Pani have that covered as well. Their Indian offerings down on Henderson Street in Leith take in the full range of favourites: pakoras, bhajis and kebabs to start, followed by one of the iconic curries that run the gamut from mild dishes such as korma through mediums like dopiaza and rogan josh to the vaguely suicidal Ceylon.
