I have eaten here maybe 5 times and it never fails to impress. Really tasty food and all dishes have good quality ingredients and are, according to a good friend who is from India, really authentic. I will be back again in the near future.

It was pretty busy but service was still good, food was good, prices reasonable, overall we enjoyed it. Only problem I asked for some extra choped chillies and was charged 95p, that's a first, hay-Ho.

Wide choice of dishes cooked in excellent way. Friendly attentive staff. You can bring your own wine which is always welcome. Slightly expensive but it's quality all the way here with this amazing restaurant which has been around for decades. Advisable to book. Recommended.

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
