This spin-off from the famous Glasgow original “never fails to hit the spot” with its “terrific” Indian cooking, served in tapas-sized portions to taste and share. It’s “great for lunch after a visit to the Dovecot Studios”, a contemporary tapestry gallery next door in Edinburgh’s Old Town.

“Wonderful Indian-style tapas”“well cooked, well served and always worth booking when in Edinburgh”. This spin-off in the Scottish capital’s Old Town lives up to the reputation established by the iconic Glasgow original.

“Busy, buzzy and always hitting the spot!” – perfectly placed to soak up the Old Town tourists, but luring faithful regulars in equal measure, this sibling of the iconic Glasgow curry house is a real crowd-pleaser owing to its superior yet modestly priced Indian sharing plates.

“It does exactly what it says on the (tiffin) tin!” – this offshoot of the famous Glasgow curry-tapas haunt has built a solid reputation in its own right for its south Asian small plates: “if you like Indian food, then you’ve come to the right place”. It’s very popular, so “booking is essential at busy times”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
