About Maisha

The name of this Indian restaurant in St Andrews means working with pride, and whether you book for a three-course lunch (including a fantastic value deal for students), an equally affordable early evening meal, or choose to dine a la carte, this sense of pride comes through in every dish. The focus at Maisha is on Bengali and Indian seafood – you can find the silvery rupchanda (pomfret) and tilapia from the Bay of Bengal in various guises here. Other recommended dishes include the Scottish lambs’ liver bhuna and a seafood bhuna made prepared with crab fresh from the waters off St Andrews. This latter is a particular point of pride for the restaurant, developed by Mahfura, wife of Maisha’s proprietor Mohi. Tucked down College Street between the university and the town centre, Maisha is a superlative choice for South Asian dining in St Andrews.

Fantastic food, not overpriced and charming staff. All the flavours tasted fresh and unique rather than the usual generic curry tastes you get in some places.
