Edinburgh has no shortage of curry houses, but Shezan has established itself as one of the city’s best, even winning first place in the esteemed Scottish Curry Awards in 2014. Flying the flag for traditional Indian cuisine in Edinburgh, this stylish restaurant on Union Place in the New Town pulls in curry lovers from all over the city with their offerings – book a table at Shezan and find out why for yourself!
Located only a stone's throw away from Edinburgh Playhouse in the New Town, Shezan is the perfect place to stop in for a pre-theatre meal, or to refuel after a day spent hitting up the shops on the nearby Princes Street. With over 30 years of experience dishing up Indian and Punjabi delights to the people of Edinburgh, Shezan’s team are old pros, and the delicious cuisine on the menu is a testament to this. Old meets new over at this sleek restaurant, with traditional Indian dishes served up in the stylishly decorated, modern dining area.
Begin your meal with some garlic or spiced mushrooms, poori (an Indian pancake smothered in a tangy sauce and filled with your choice of prawn, chana, mushroom or chicken) or a classic like samosas and pakora. All of the time-honoured favourites feature on the main course menu, from the fiery vindaloo and jalfrezi to a range of creamy kormas. We recommend the North Indian chilli garlic chicken, barbecued fillets of chicken breast with fresh green chilli and garlic cooked in a special medium-spiced sauce. One of the hottest Indian restaurants in the city, Edinburgh’s spice-loving crowd flock to Shezan. Make a reservation at this popular New Town restaurant on Union Place in advance to avoid disappointment!
