Harden's says

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.

“Top-quality food a country mile from your average curry house”, inspired by the Parsi cafes of Mumbai, keeps the sole Scottish link in this nine-branch chain extremely busy. “I usually go for independent restaurants but Dishoom has been consistently excellent and maintained lovely service over various dinners this year”. The only real problem is a veto on evening bookings, which makes it “difficult to get into – in four attempted visits I have only been able to get in once! The queues are half-way down the street. Worth it, though!”

“The only chain restaurant that is truly interesting” – so say local fans of this hit venture, now with eight branches nationally, which draws inspiration from the vintage Parsi cafés of Mumbai; for those who haven't yet succumbed, their bacon naan in particular can prove “a revelation”.

“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.

"Amazing food, great ambience and service. We had not booked, but they found us a table for lunch, and were very helpful in helping us choose what to order. So pleased we got in; I love Indian food and this was some of the best I have had. "
