Ignite, as the name implies, is a restaurant with a fire in its belly. Their spice rack is well-stocked, and their menu is packed with Indian and Bangladeshi specialities that can be made to your exact spice-ifications. Located right in the centre of Edinburgh, on Morrison Street, just yards from Haymarket station, they are open from 5-30pm every day – just remember to book a table ahead to avoid disappointment.
Edinburgh is a great place to eat, and a great place to eat curry in particular. In the city centre – right by Haymarket station – you can find Ignite, an Indian restaurant that is up there with the best in the city. They serve specialities from the north of India and Bangladesh, and, as you might have guessed from their name, their forte is fire. Diners at their Morrison Street restaurant can test themselves against some of the hottest curries in Scotland, although the less adventurous need not worry: they have plenty of milder dishes as well.
With a name like Ignite, it seems silly not to throw a few fiery recommendations about. The vindaloo is the obvious place to start, and the chilli-packed Goan favourite is a staple on the menu, as is the Madras, but our pick would be the Ceylon, which is unique to this Morrison Street Indian restaurant. The lily-livered will enjoy a korma and a nice sit down, and perhaps a mango lassi on the side. Visitors to Haymarket in Edinburgh are spoiled for choice when choosing a place to dine, but they keep coming back to Ignite – book a table now and find out why.
Excellent food and good friendly service. This is our usual restaurant when our group of ex-colleagues get together twice a year. The food is so good we have never considered a different restaurant.
The food at Ignite is delicious and there is a large choice from their menu. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I had a prawn starter and then a Korma.
Excellent choice of Indian food on their menu. Great location at Haymarket with plenty of trams and buses. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good selection of wine.
