How hot/spicy can the food be? I am us to somewhat hot spicy food but this was beyond that. But at the same time very tasty. One beer to the food wasn't enough......

We went here on a friend's recommendation and weren't disappointed. Easy access to car park outside the restaurant. Warm and interesting interior - love the partitions between the single tables. Odd theme, but not bad, just unusual! Great food, neither cheap nor expensive for Edinburgh. For me the portion size was perfect - no left overs but not left feeling... More

Ate here on a couple of nights - takeaway was better than the curry. A little pricey - enjoy the tandoori . Overall ok - probably eat there again

Had intended to eat here for some time. The atmosphere and service were fine. However, the quality of food and portion sizes leave a lot to be desired.

It was a nice enough experience but we thought the portions are a bit on the small side and quite pricey too, dont get me wrong it was clean plates all round it was all just a bit average for an award winning restaurant.

Went for a family meal with my husband and 2 son's. The chicken pakoras were like chicken dippers. My main described as "hot" on the menu was bland chicken with spinach and no hint of spice! My husband and son's tandoori dishes tasted burnt! My youngest son is the only one of us who enjoyed his main! Keema nan was... More

We went with a groupon voucher. Top quality food. Chicken pakora starters - excellent. 2 curries, peshwari nan, and 1 rice, then kulfi ice-cream. Excellent service, and a very fine meal.

We were treated less favourably because we were using a groupon voucher a d because we were a same sex couple. The manager begrudgingly allowed us to choose what we wanted off the menu and was less than impressed when all we wanted was to spend our voucher on what we wanted. He made it very clear that he was... More

Drawing on the traditional cuisine of India, Bangladesh, Thailand and Nepal, the critically acclaimed dishes are served in a nautically-inspired interior with an airy yet intimate ambience.
