Excellent meal and service with a smile. Brother in law said best curry he’s ever had and he likes his curries! Slight concern that they didn’t have our booking on arrival but was soon sorted out. Highly recommended

Visited this restaurant a few times and the standard of food and service is top notch. There are plenty of options available in the Rey section of the menu. If you have some concerns about any dish he staff are always on hand to give a helpful explanation. Overall, this is a good dining experience. The one criticism l have is that the wine prices are high, paying more than £22 for a moderate Cote de Rhine is over he top.

Probably picked the wrong night but there was a party of around fifteen loud male diners who the staff seemed very eager to serve, resulting in our meal being very rushed and lacked the previous good service we have had here.

Great food and wine. Prompt and efficient service even though restaurant was full to capacity. Recommend booking - we went on a Tuesday and if we hadn’t booked we’d have been unlucky.

This was without a doubt the worst dining experience of my life. What went wrong? Maybe it was the extraordinarily slow service! Maybe it was the awful food quality including a clearly undercooked prawn dish which I have no doubt that we will be seeing later! Maybe it was the couple next to us clearly high on something swearing and speaking loudly! So food, clientele, ambience, service .....all at a record low. If I could have given this restaurant zero stars I would have done. Do yourselves a favour and DO NOT eat at this restaurant.

Grand. Our best meal in Edinburgh. The owner is a delightful host and the chef is an artist with flavor. Both are from Nepal.

Very pleasant, unobtrusive staff, good tasting and authentic nepalese and indian food.
The staff found out it was my partner's birthday and brought a inpromptu birthday cake to the table.
It was a lovely gesture.

Perfect food. I ordered the medium heat Piro Piro and my date ordered the fragrant korma. Both meals were full of flavour and suited our respective spice palates. The wait staff were the most professional and friendly that you will find and the prices are very reasonable. Fine dining, full flavours, great value!

This restaurant is one of my favorites ever. I only wish I could stay in Edinburgh longer so I could go back. While somewhat small and loud, the service was nonetheless very good. The food is out of this world. I don’t remember the names of what we ordered, but one was like butter chicken and the other was shrimp and vegetables. They were amazing. As starters, we also tried the mixed variety plate to try multiple things, and a shrimp tortilla—all fabulous. The coconut rice, and cheese and pineapple naans were excellent. . The food was like Indian but different. Get yourself over there now!

This was our first experience with Nepalese cuisine and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The menu was extensive and our knowledgeable host was very helpful in walking us through it. We found everything we tried to be delicious- the spices were divine! Would highly recommend this restaurant. Great food, great service and very good value.

The restaurant didnt have our booking, which I guess would be more open tables fault than their own, but they were very accommodating and had space for us anyway(group of 11) . The food was great and the staff were friendly and informative. Everyone enjoyed their meal and made it a memorable evening for all

Booked this, pre-Rolling Stones gig, as did several other people! Homely food, somewhere between Indian and Chinese with a leaning toward the former. It took a while to get our food, but it was worth waiting for. Decent wine list and good Nepalese beer. Highly recommended, but book, as it is small. Some seats are at one huge table, so perhaps not best for an intimidate tete-a-tete!

Great food. Place was crammed but the service was attentive and swift. Nothing too much of a problem. Being busy the food was a bit slow, but I’d worry if they were shoving it out. The quality and quantity I’d great. Can highly recommend you give this place a try.

Good service. Fine food. Very handily placed after a game at Murrayfield. Helpings are huge and very tasty. Reasonably priced even though like all other restaurants in the area they had a "Matchday Menu". Experience of other venues on Match day usually means restricted choice and inflated prices. I would definitely recommend it.
