Four of us ate for dinner in this small restaurant. However we were the only customers all night. The food was very good although some of the dishes were rather on the milder side, they were still very tasty. Surprising that an English steak dish came with the trimmings and chips, was well received. The staff were friendly and we... More

Had a lovely meal here last night. We had bought a groupon deal which allowed £20 worth of food for £10. Food was freshly prepared and very tasty and staff were attentive. Only negative was there was no music on in the background and we were the only 2 in the restaurant to begin with so there was a bit... More

Had a lovely night with a large group of friends here. The restaurant had laid out a long oval table which meant we could all interact quite easily and share food etc so had a good feel to the place. There is an extensive menu to choose from and all fairly reasonably priced apart from one thing which unfortunately I... More

On a recent break in Edinburgh. We found ourselves in Haymarket, looking for something to eat. We called into The Verandah Indian Restaurant. The meal was fantastic. We had some poppadoms with chilli, & mango chutney to start. I had a mixed tandoori with nan bread and my friend had a chicken bhuna with pilau rice. The meals was fantastic... More

The title is not an exaggeration! I ate here opting for the tandori prawns (£14.95 for FOUR prawns) and the chana masalan (£4.25). Not only were their only FOUR prawns averaging £3.75 each, they were overcooked and dry as toast. Restaurant manager Hizal (not a nice man) initially stated this was the size of a standard order and feigned offence,... More

We received a phone call from Deliveroo around 20.30 to tell us that the customer was not happy with the food portion. Shortly after reviewer called to complain about the delivery time... More

I've had takeaway from the Verandah previously, and really liked their brinjal bhaji. I went for sit-in once, but the portions seemed much smaller, which was disappointing. I recently bought a Groupon deal. The deal page describes the fact that all dishes are "available for takeaway", and nowhere on the page or the fine print of the voucher did it... More

Confused ........... Is the reviewer complaining about Groupon or the Restaurant ? After reading the review I am clear reviewer was told by the restaurant about the voucher and deal and this is something he/she should take it up with Groupon.
