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.
pre rugby match ritual. highly recommended. excellent food. excellent service.
Superb place to eat pre rugby at Murrayfield. Excellent food.
excellent service and excellent food. would recommend to anyone who likes curry.
They offer an excellent value lunch deal and the food is always very good. Staff are very friendly and always accommodate me as a vegan.
This restaurant's food deserved full marks but having to sit just inside the door past our booked time while the staff fussed over some large parties (birthday, stag night) means I have to mark them down for service. Also the level of noise was really distracting. This was not coming from the stag party beside us but rather from the other side of the restaurant which made me think it was more to do with the acoustics in the place.
Very disappointed with the choice of table I booked online and specifically asked for a quiet table this was not the case my partner and myself were put beside a table of rugby supporters who were really noisy all night it was impossible to chat to each other and the language was foul it was that bad the supporters themself knew they were in the wrong and paid for a drink for the two of us I complained to the waiter about the table location and was disappointed to be ignored plus we were behind the front door and it was cold every time people came in
Dined at Ignite the first week it opened more than a decade ago. Been back a few times over the years, the last time being Saturday Sep 9 and one things remain constant.... the quality of the food is as high as our initial visit. Put simply, a good place to eat.
Extremely courteous staff. excellent food and served in a timely fashion. Lovely atmosphere and very attentive staff. We were pleasantly surprised at the portion size of all lunch menu meals - comparable with evening meals and freshly prepared at the time of ordering.
I have been to this restaurant twice now, and on both occasions have had good food and attentive staff. The lunch menu is a good value, and the hot towelettes at the end of the meal are a nice touch
One of the best Indian restaurants in Edinburgh . First class service and the meal was superb, booked a table for four people in advance, just as well as it was very busy on Saturday night, definitely will return.
