This restaurant does not exist. The premises have been changed to a noodle bar. We called from outside (confused!) and were told to come upstairs where there was really an Indian. We went upstairs...it is a noodle bar. They still tried to seat us, but we left.

THIS RESTAURANT CLOSED DOWN 2 months ago - despite this fact we were able to book it on opentable and turn up to discover it is no longer in operation. Please don’t make the same mistake we did and turn up for a non existent booking

Opentable get your act together and remove this restaurant from your booking options 😡😡😡

on visiting this restaurant on Thurs 31 Jan 2019 we arrived early (the first customers)but were shown to a table and asked if we wanted drinks , although it was early the restaurant was cold and the décor was quite dull and spartan, the staff were very friendly and helpful and although there was no sharing platter on the menu one was made up for us. Now to get to the important part, this restaurant is all about the food and having travelled extensively both all over Britain and the continent this was possibly the best Indian food we have ever eaten if it was possible I would give the food 10 stars The location is also superb being immediately opposite the Festival theatre ideal for pre theatre dinner. Our party consisted of three adults and the total cost including drinks was only £85.00 which considering its location in the middle of Edinburgh was excellent. I would be happy to visit again, but if they could sort out the ambience issues and toilet I would happily have given it 10 stars.

Lovely place very low key decor wise, but the food was to die for, right up there as the best curry I have had, highly advised.

Very disappointed the dosas are not gluten free. Other than that I enjoyed myself and the service and prices were all very good.

Food was amazing. Best curry and nan bread anywhere. Good wine, which can be hard to find in an Indian restaurant. Will be back.

Booked on open table. Get there and they say they dont have us 'written down' and they can't sit us. Ruined our plans!

Sooo tasty! & our waiter was lovely. No complaints about any of the dishes & we finished the meal off with kulfi ice-cream in attractive little pots. My 2nd visit.

Tasty south Indian food, much more authentic tasting than a nearby popular competitor. I sampled the idli for starters, street food that tasted just as good as it did in India. All the mains were flavoursome and tasted distinctly different from each other. Generous portions and cheerful service. A ideal place for a casual meal, or before the Festival Theatre.
