Given the current climate surrounding COVID-19, many authorities are placing restrictions on social gatherings. In the best interest of everyone’s safety, we are continuously updating the availability of our partner restaurants to reflect these measures. We encourage people to still support the restaurant industry in other ways.Learn how
Deep in the Scottish Borders, about an hour south of Edinburgh in the tiny but picturesque market town of Peebles, rests the Prince Of India, an Indian and Bangladeshi restaurant that is an undoubted fixture when the townspeople have a hankering for a handi fish dupiaza or a need for garlic naan. It’s here at this High Street haunt for balti barons and karahi kings that, as the proprietors of this cosy court quite rightly claim, taste reigns supreme.
Prince Of India is no pretender to the throne when it comes to ruling the Scottish Borders, and certainly not in terms of fiery-food fiefdom in the small, 8000-strong town of Peebles, whose High Street the restaurant indubitably dominates in terms of Indian and Bangladeshi food. The jury is out and the critics have spoken – just an hour south of Edinburgh, in what may seem an unlikely spot, you can find some of the best South Asian cuisine in the region.
Prince Of India’s restaurant frontage, across the High Street from the Tweeddale Museum and Gallery, might be diminutive, but inside the cosy space opens out into a large space suitable for your next celebration. And indeed spice fans from across the Scottish Borders come to Prince Of India to celebrate with a fine selection of drinks and, lest we forget, delicious Indian and Bangladeshi dishes such as the restaurant’s chicken jalfrezi, tandoori king prawns, lamb biryani and many, many more. Can’t decide, go for a set meal and be pampered like the princeling you secretly are.
