Went here on Saturday night with no reservation, the restaurant was already extremely busy with no available tables but they were very eager to accommodate us so took down our number and said they would call us as soon as a table became free, this worked out perfectly as we went for a drink in the meantime and received a...

Had a great meal curry was very tasty although a vindaloo is definitely more like a madras!!! The staff were very nice and service was great.

Had chicken wing starter and it was hot but also bitter so not the greatest. Main meal was King Prawn Vindaloo and I was pleasantly surprised that it was actually hot and no skimping on the spice. Lovely big and fresh prawns too. Happy.

Food is fantastic and very well presented. Atmosphere is modern with a pleasant ambience. The waiting staff are very friendly and attentive, especially Bushra who couldn't do enough and everything she did came with a smile. Definitely go back!

Went to shezan after travelling all day. Was close to our hotel and was not disappointed. Had the chicken biryani and tikka masala and probably one of the best we have ever had. Asked for the masala a little hotter and the chef came out to ask exactly how I wanted it and was amazing. Atmosphere was lovely and the... More

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
