The restaurant is easy to miss, but once you’re there, Mezbaan will be a pleasant surprise with layered flavours from the states on India’s southern tip. VENUE: If you go looking for Mezbaan, you may drive right past it as it is a bit ‘hidden...More

This was our second visit here and we couldn't fault it. The food is fantastic and a must for anyone who has visited southern India as the flavours are very authentic of the region. Very reasonably priced and great staff too.

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and

"Refreshingly different" is how our customers describe us...Scotland has a few restaurants that specialise in south Indian cuisine. We are however the only restaurant dedicated to south Indian food in the pleasant city of Edinburgh. Our goal is to bring to Scotland especially Edinburgh the glorious array of exotic south Indian cuisine.
