We had expected traditional Indian fare which would have been lovely in itself. Here we were surprised with a fancy fusion of traditional Indian food and alternative ingredients. Fantastic! A very special twist which was superb on the palate and pleasing to the eye!

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
