Gorgeous good & brilliant service. Family run and you can really tell. Not like the usual commercial places in tourist hotspots. Would recommend the mixed pakora platter and samosas were amazing. Asked for Chai instead of other drinks on the menu and was very happy with the hospitality.
Gorgeously decorated and easy to find. Definitely a must visit! We would return when we visit again. Thanks so much!

Seriously delicious street food cooking
The spices and combinations where excellent . If we had more time in edinburgh we would have eaten our way through the whole menu

This was a great little restaurant and a superb find in the centre of Edinburgh. It is very much a family concern, focussing on Punjabi dishes. The drinks list is very small scale but tailors very well with the food. The menu is very different from the "normal" Indian restaurant but the food on each of the occasions we visited was delicious.
The service was great, despite it being a very busy restaurant and the staff made us feel very welcome (take a bow, Jas, and all your colleagues).
All in all this is a great, vibrant, lively restaurant that is well worth a visit.

Food was great, we had the paneer wrap which was very tasty, and the samosa chaat which was also delicious. Service was great - would recommend visiting. New location is great and outdoor dining area is well-decorated!
