I checked out this place based on trip advisor reviews. And it did not disappoint. From outside it looks not too fancy; I wondered for a moment whether I came to the right place. Also the interior could be improved. I was sat at the window next to a wall ... and at the end of the dinner, my coat... More

We went to Rivage with some trepidation. We were booked in on a Saturday night at 7pm and thought it would be really busy, but it was empty! Was the meal going to be bad? No, it was the best Indian meal we had tasted. The price was very reasonable and with bob and free corkage it was fantastic value.... More

Wonderful meal, very helpful as we had very little time to eat and they advised us on what could be quick. Meal served up in no time at all and was delicious. Empty plates all round. Will be back soon.

We visited this wonderful restaurant with our neighbours. It is such a friendly place, and Catherine the owner is so welcoming and helpful with the menu. Fresh tasty and imaginative menu. You can BYOB if you like, although they are licensed and their bar prices are very good, and great Indian lager. Please go here, its a real hidden gem.... More

We love Rivage. The food is always fresh and tasty and the service friendly and helpful. It is our favourite Indian restaurant in Edinburgh by far. We wouldn't go anywhere else.

Delicious food! Got to watch our nan bread being made in the tandoor oven. Sad to hear that it will soon be closing due to rent hikes. Hope you take on another place real soon - food and company from lady 'front of house' was great!

We are semi regulars to this restaurant and its standard of food nor it's non traditional menu never lets us down. On this occasion it was a gathering of friends to celebrate a significant birthday and the food and kindness of the owner to make it a special night was very much appreciated. Despite having a licence she allowed us... More

Had a really lovely meal with friends last night. A great selection of dishes not all your usual Indian dishes although they are available if that's your choice. Breads were so tasty and meals fantastic I recommend chicken Madras. The restaurant itself is basic and doesn't sum up how great the food is , will definitely be back.

Well, based on the reviews we visited this curry house (although that description belies its real appeal) and, although not the most salubrious location and not the most spectacular interior, the menu is most definitely not your usual Indian and the food was amazing. Different style, different tastes, well cooked and nicely presented. As an added bonus you can take... More
