comment Bright and clean restaurant with view out to Water of Leith. Was empty when we arrived at 7:30 but started to fill up later in the evening. Played standard fare Indian restaurant music. Atmosphere a bit clinical was glad to be there in a group
Good choice of menu with other dishes I haven't heard of or tried before.

Onion Bhaji - nice and spicy and unlike many bhajis was not dripping in grease.

Polashi Chicken - chicken nicely cooked with a good tandoori taste, sauce tasty but maybe too much. Glad I tried it but wouldn't choose it again

Saag Aloo - very nice best I have had for a while

Plain Naan - nicely prepared and reasonable size

Would I go back? - if I was passing but wouldn't go out my way to dine there

comment Poppadums were quick to arrive and were warm and crispy. Pickles ok but I'm not really that keen on the pickles

Starters also arrived quickly. I had wanted the duck starter (can't remember its name) but we were informed there was no duck so I opted for the Chicken Pooris. Nice portion size and had plentiful filling of a nice spicy taste.

Went for the Chicken Himalayan Hot Pot. The menu states it is a 3 chilli hot dish so I was expecting something more of a challenge than it was. Having said that it was spicy enough for me, very tasty and certainly a decent size portion. The plain naan was lovely, not doughy as you get in a lot of restaurants.

The restaurant was busy enough for a Wednesday, and the service on the whole was attentive. Didn't feel as though we had to wait too long for the main.

Would I go back? Certainly. Bet it gets busy at the weekend.
