Folk of Edinburgh rejoiced at the announcement that they were to have their very own branch of Dishoom - the much-loved London-based Parsi cafe chain. Now open, since Dec 2016 in St Andrew Square.

“Fan-bloody-tastic!” – for “sumptuous” tapas dishes or a “different type of breakfast” (a top tip here), in a “fun, buzzy atmosphere”, this “very welcome addition to the Edinburgh dining scene” (the first offshoot of the celebrated Parsi chain outside the Big Smoke) is just the ticket.

“A welcome and different newcomer to the Edinburgh dining scene” – this “buzzing” yearling was the first branch outside London of the famous, Parsi-style, all-day diner chain; and its “Bombay street food” is “fantastic”, provided by staff who are “lightning fast”. It’s “great that you can book”, if only for breakfast, lunch, and groups of six or more in the evening; otherwise, “go early to avoid the queues”. Top Tip: if you haven’t tried it yet, “breakfast is a revelation: naan with bacon on the lightest flatbread ever tasted”.

“Love it!” Folk of Edinburgh have rejoiced at the “excellent all-round experience” offered by their very own branch of this smash-hit Mumbai-style import, which opened in St Andrew Square late last year, with its “different” Indian dishes and “capable” service. As in London, fans just “wish they took bookings”.

"What a delightful surprise to be able to walk straight in without the queues we're used to in London! A fantastic change after days of fine dining and haggis ... flavours as bold and powerful as ever. The experience and concept is definitely cheesy and I wouldn't want to go too often, but that's a minor gripe."

"Great food, but a tad too busy for the staff to keep up with. Noisy, so don't come here if you want a lengthy conversation!"

"If you like Indian food then this does a very good tapas style approach - the length of the queues shows its popularity. Very helpful waiting staff to explain the menu."
