The title is not an exaggeration! I ate here opting for the tandori prawns (£14.95 for FOUR prawns) and the chana masalan (£4.25). Not only were their only FOUR prawns averaging £3.75 each, they were overcooked and dry as toast. Restaurant manager Hizal (not a nice man) initially stated this was the size of a standard order and feigned offence,... More

In response to the above review, the order was made on the 13 Jan 17 via Deliveroo at 19:10 and Deliveroo driver left the restaurant at approx 19.45. We received a phone call from Deliveroo around 20.30 about the food portion being small. Shortly after Ruth Neil called to complain about the delivery time and food portion. He was told... More

I've had takeaway from the Verandah previously, and really liked their brinjal bhaji. I went for sit-in once, but the portions seemed much smaller, which was disappointing. I recently bought a Groupon deal. The deal page describes the fact that all dishes are "available for takeaway", and nowhere on the page or the fine print of the voucher did it... More

Very friendly with good food. They made some good suggestions about what to order and were helpful in advising us about what we would like. We went on New Years Eve. Good experience

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.
