I really enjoyed the food and how fresh it was. We had lamb curry with spinach and the butterflied prawns and appreciated the depth of flavour.

Was quietly surprised by how good the food was. If you enjoy curries you won't be disappointed. My only slight criticism is the ambiance. It could be better.

The service and food was second to none. In this climate positive reviews count for so much and hubby and I are happy to give this a great one! From walking in (after booking online obviously!), we were treated to service with a smile, friendly...approachable staff everywhere who bent over backwards to look after their guests. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was to die for, every course was totally delicious and there was no excess waiting even though there were a number of other diners there. Highly recommended in every area... if you love a good curry, get yourself here!More

A fantastic dinner, great food, excellent service. Honestly the best curry we've had in a very long time. Introduced our kids to Indian cuisine and they loved it! Highly recommended.

If you are visiting Edinburgh I highly recommend you...go here to eat as you will not be disappointed....the complimentary drinks at the end where also a fabulous bonus to the meal.More

Beautiful curry. Very rich flavour, and a nice thick gravy. Chicken was tender and well cooked. Naan and rice really well done too. Great atmosphere. Definitely worth a look if you're on the royal mile as, like all toursit hotspots, some of the food in...the area is awful.More

No dedicated parking. Just off the Royal mile. Pay at a meter somewhere on a side street.
