Visited Shamoli looking at 4* rating on trip advisor since we were at the Royal Mile road and wanted to have Good Indian Food. The buffet had very very limited vegetarian options and even they were below average. In the name of Thai curry and...More

we were a group of 5 people, we opted for Buffet on a Friday Afternoon. The starters were pretty amazing, but the Main course...all 2 dishes were not that great. Did not find it was worth the money.

Very flavoursome Thai food and great service. The restaurant offers a wide range of both Thai and Indian foods. Staff were very lovely. This is a great restaurant for a night out in Edinburgh.

Really nice food on high street with nice Ambiente. The Prices are ok, the staff a little bit reserved. There was one highlight: The Innis and Gun Beer! Cheers.

Please don’t make the mistake of visiting this place while you are on the Royal mile in Scotland as they offer you poor quality Thai and Indian food Absolutely pathetic and extremely poor service

Good variety of veg and meat, flavoursome curries and amazing pakoras, topping it with excellent service! A good lunch option for sure! Thanks, Joy for serving

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
