Went here in a Saturday night and was one of only 3 tables in so it lacked the atmosphere that you would expect when eating out at the weekend. However this did not take away from what otherwise was a lovely evening. Food was delicious, massive portion sizes (however we got a goody bag to take away) and a complimentary... More

Food and service were excellent. Staff were polite, friendly and unobtrusive. Chef even came out to check we were enjoying our food. Thank you. We will be back.

Had dinner here on 11 March 2017. Had had take away in last few months, but a very long time since we'd sat in. Absolutely wonderful. Good quality chicken. Excellent tasty sauces. Rice done properly. Excellent side dishes. Good service, without being intrusive. Everything spot on.

This is our favourite family take-away treat. The food is well priced and always delicious! It definitely gets our vote for best take-away in Penicuik. The only reason I have rated it as very good and not excellent is because the orders are often packaged wrong. There have been a few occasions where we have got home with an incorrect... More

My husband and I were on vacation in Penicuik to visit friends. Being from the United States, we had heard that the UK had great Indian food so we were excited to try it. It did not disappoint! It was excellent!! We started out with popadoms and dipping sauce, beer/wine, and a mango juice for myself. We then had our... More

Description
I have been going to Clippers in Penicuik for over five years and would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone. We are always greeted with respect and a warm smile from the staff and especially the owner. The service is always good and the food has always been very good. We have been encouraged to try new dishes to help educate my palate, but I tend to stick with the 'chicken tikka buna'. This dish suits my palate and my digestive system. I/we have tried other places but always come back to clippers and in our/my estimation is the best one for me.
