Having checked reviews on Trip Advisor, we chose The Khukuri. We were not disappointed both with the food and the service. Spices, popadoms, peshwari naans and the 2 mains were both well presented and full of flavour

We booked a table on opentable about 30 minutes before heading to the Khukuri and arrived early. We were seated right away and had excellent service the entire time. The food was amazing!! I’m so happy we found this place on yelp and got to experience this restaurant. We’ll definitely be back next time we visit! Thank you for a great dinner!!

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.

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.

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!
