Delicious food, nice atmosphere and excellent service. The menu was extensive and reasonably priced. I have no hesitation in recommending this gem of a restaurant.
This is a lovely Indian restaurant with good food at reasonable prices. The service is attentive without being pushy and always consistently good quality. Would highly recommend.
Excellant meal and service was quick. Great restaurant. Would thoroughly reccomend this restarant. Bedt infian in Efinburgh. Staff all very attentive and never too much yo stop and chat.
We tried four other Indian restaurants in Edinburgh- Indian Lounge outshone them all- excellent service, exceptional food, good prices. I wish we lived in Edinburgh- we'd be back every week.
4th visit to this wonderful eatery ...........and once again the food exceeded our expectations. As always we were warmly greeted by cheery staff and served food that was prepared using the freshest of ingredients, tomatoes that tasted fresh from the vine and the chillies were so crunchy and juicy. If you like Indian food a visit here is a must 😀 Waiting time for food can be average but I'd personally wait longer for this quality of food!
The food was fabulous. Though we had booked this did not seem to matter as they did not ask for our name and seated four people who arrived after us on spec before we were shown to our table. The service was good but a little too fast- no break between starters and mains despite the restaurant becoming quiet at that time. We will go back because the food was lovely and the table service good, if a little too fast.
Fantastic meal with everything cooked fresh. I have a dairy allergy and given most curries are cooked with ghee really struggle to find indian food I can eat. The waiter explained they could make me any dish I wanted from scratch using oil, including naan bread which I haven't had in years. Amazing. Everything was delicious and service was great. Would definitely recommend!!
Booking for 20 people was not a problem. Excellent service from start to finish. The food was excellent very taste and came out piping hot. I would go to this curry house again if Edinburgh.
The quality and presentation of the food was good. However, the restaurant was very small and cramped. The service was friendly - unfortunately they forgot us, so we had to wait longer. Nevertheless, we will visit the restaurant again on our next trip to Edinburgh.
excellent food lovely friendly staff😁 i live in Devon and this is the second time in two years ive visited Edinburgh and this Indian restaurant surpassed my 1st visit
