The wife and I went last night whilst visiting Edinburgh. We had Chicken Tikka Masala, Keema Rice and Naan and the food was excellent! The best Keema Naan we've ever had. Prices were reasonable too, if you're in the area check them out.

Visited this place today as I knew that it used to have a good reputation. I arrived at 1.25 expecting to have lunch. On entering I noticed the place was empty apart from two waiters , one of whom was eating. The other just looked at me inquisitively, and I asked if they were doing lunches. He appeared totally disinterested... More

We happened upon this restaurant one night and took a chance. What a gem. If you like fine Indian cuisine I highly recommend this spot. It is right outside the Haymarket Train station. The sauces were excellent, the lamb was plentiful and very tender. The breads were right out of the tandoor, crisp on one side and soft on the... More

A friend and I were randomly looking for a place to eat, and came across this one a haymarket. The menu looked really good. We ordered quite a few things and they were all decent. Quality was good and staff was nice as well.

The only indian restaurant to welcome 12 cricketers to its beau de fair on a ten thirty reservation.Everybody else apparently doing too well to need £350 to keep their kitchen open for another fifteen minutes.The staff were warm hearted and skurried about us like small children on christmas day. The choice of drinks was limited and they appeared to have... More

The restaurant was a bit smelly. The main course came while we were still eating our starter. We were the only customers in the restaurant when we ordered, surely it's not too hard to wait till one course is finished before bringing the next. My husband didn't enjoy the chicken in his main meal, chicken jalfrezi. It was overcooked.

We ordered spicy poppadoms, they didn't have any. We ordered lamb, no lamb. Ordered large bottles of Cobra, no bottles... So being careful to choose something on the menu that was available, the meal itself was OK. The chef came out to see us to apologise about the lack of choice. We were the only people in, but it was... More

We booked online but when we arrived we thought it was closed. nobody in the restaurant. We ordered a lot of food and it was really good. The price compared to the other restaurents was 30-40% higher, so i guess therefore nobody was in the restaurant.

Thank Carsten A
