Curry Cafe

Indian | Leith Walk, Edinburgh

This is a very basic cafe and at first glance not somewhere we would normally choose. It is primarily a takeaway and home delivery place. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The service is excellent. There is a varied choice on the menu, Curries, pizzas, chip suppers etc. The food is freshly prepared and delicious. I had Chicken Passanda and on reflection, it was too creamy for me. It is made with cream and so it is probably great for those who like really creamy dishes. No way the fault of the cafe. Very good value for money. More
