A friend from the US recommended we go here during our visit to Edinburgh. Our food was delicious and he service was as fantastic. Highly recommend to anyone in the area!
Lovely staff. Fantastic food. Would not go to any other Indian in Edinburgh.
The food was amazing and not too expensive. The staff we found very friendly and we were able to have a laugh and a joke with the staff which we loved!! And they gave us extra chocolate which was a bonus......... Overall amazing
Great food great service would recommend you give this place a try you wont be disappointed
By pure luck, my wife & I paused to check out the menu as we walked along Rose Street on our first day of a 10 night stay in Edinburgh for the Tattoo & Fringe Festival. It looked tempting, so downstairs we went to be greeted by the smiling face of the restaurant founder’s son who showed to a nice table. Having ordered a couple of Innis & Gunn bourbon cask Scottish beers, we set about making the difficult choice from the very wide tasty sounding menu. Founder’s son could not have been more helpful as we explained our tastes, he made recommendations. The food was perfectly prepared, indeed my wife declared the chicken biryani the finest she ever tasted, given we’ve been eating curries since the late 1960s that’s praise indeed! The final touch was looking at the desserts to see it included Gulab Jammon, traditional Indian doughnuts in syrup rarely seen these days of pre prepared food. We were so impressed by the quality of service & food that we went back twice more in addition to our normal favourite Edinburgh restaurants! A word of advice if you’re wishing to dine at peak times, just book a table online in advance of your smart phone as it’s justifiably very popular!
Excellent Indian meal. They were very informative on allergens, fully prepared to take account of one diner’s milk allergy as well as adjusting the amount of spice if required. They offer different preparations using chicken, chicken tikka, lamb etc, so the rest of us tucked in to chicken tikka chasni and chicken korma. Veg pakora to start was crisp and served with two sauces. Only drawback is that the restaurant is in a windowless basement, but the air wasn’t at all stuffy, even when the place was packed to the gunnels with Saturday evening diners. Will definitely go back.
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!!
Glad we chose this restaurant. 8 of us on a stag do and we were well looked after. I'd definitely go back. We asked for 8 lots of rice but were told we wouldn't need them as they were big portions. We couldn't finish those 5 let alone the 8 we asked for. Great service!
