Location and contact

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.

Clippers has had a roller coaster of quality. It was great when Matin ran the place. We went every couple of weeks. Went downhill laterally. Shame. We now eat at curry at Kebab Mahal or Radhuni in Loanhead. Oddly enough I know people who say...More

Enjoyed a lovely meal served by friendly staff. The owner came out of the kitchen to speak to us. Nice touch. The starter was onion bhajis and popadoms with side dishes. My wife and myself then enjoyed a lovely Indian main course with pilau rice...More

We used to love coming to eat here but have noticed that the food has gone downhill over the past few years. Clippers used to have the best Indian food (ever) but it is now mediocre, over-seasoned and over-cooked (?). I’d love it if it...More

What a fabulous Sunday buffet for £8.95 per person. Good selection of starters, mains and desserts and BYOB was a bonus. Staff friendly. Great night out with friends
