Traditional old skool curry house with all your usual favourites, decor traditional. Thought the food was excellent and a restaurant that has an alcohol licence, not all Indian Restaurants in Edinburgh have one. So if you like a draught Cobra with your meal, this is the place. Staff attentitive, but relaxed, all courses came out at the right time in... More

The chef, who was amazing, has gone back home. The new chef is just not up to parr. Dishes are now very greasy, lacking the depth of flavour that the old chef could create. I ordered chicken, got lamb. No offer of a refund. Not good. A good chef makes the difference. I will be giving this one a miss... More

Ordered carry out last night, first one for a while. No nan bread, no chips when delivered, pakora was cold, main meal hot and no more. Save your money folks plenty others to choose from in Corstorphine.

The servings are generous and we always leave feeling we have been well fed! The prices are very reasonable when compared to other Indian restaurants in Edinburgh Staff are welcoming... More

Restauraunt is well presented and clean. The food was average, certainly not the worst indian but far from the best I've had. We were the only people in the restaurant on a Tuesday at lunch time so service was ok as you would expect HOWEVER the utter disintrest from our waiter was uncomfortable. Questions were answered with palpable reluctance and... More

I absolutely love this restaurant. We had a takeaway on wednesday evening and the food was amazing. I had the North Indian garlic chilli chicken and my husband ordered Chicken Jalfrezi, we shared a rice and garlic nan bread. The service was very prompt.

Looked like nice establishment, linen table cloth, well set tables, decor etc, but that is where it stopped. Should have read the previous review before we went, so true! Staff very uninterested, not rude, but not hospitable. Curry was too sweet and oily, couldn't taste any flavours beyond that. They did ask whether we enjoyed our meal, I made a... More
