Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely biryani chicken curry. Freshly made, generous portion and good value at £8.50. Informal and friendly atmosphere.

The place was quite dirty, sticky floors, old looking. Staff are very rude, extremely poor service, they really couldn’t give a monkeys about you being there, they looked so unbothered, unfriendly and looked like they just couldn’t wait for everyone to leave. Food tasted nice...but was cold, maybe best getting the food to go and eating in the comfort of your home. Prices are reasonable.More

The staff are miserable and have no customer service skills but the food was actually ok. £21 for 2. Reasonable portion. Avoided the toilets.

Heard so many good reviews about this place, although after my first visit I’m not sure why. Popped in after seeing a show, ordered the sag aloo, rice and a naan bread. I got a load of sauce which tasted like green pesto, one square...of potato and a load of rice which was so dry it was all clumped together, the naan was almost raw. And to top it off I really needed the loo - one toilet which was utterly disgusting, only good thing was there was sanitising spray which I sprayed on the bottom of my trainers when I got out! I certainly won’t rush back.More

Wow! Food was amazing. Fragrant, tasty, and big portions - although light, at the same time. We thought it was great value. I had an okra curry and it was tremendous.

Food was plentiful but lukewarm, badly presented, non authentic and seriously lacking in flavour. In general the place wasn’t very clean and the toilet was dirty and disgusting. We will not be back and wouldn’t recommend to anyone

Was lovely, fresh, aromatic Food. Big portions & reasonably priced. Can do with less oil though. We had the chilli chicken & rice. Was spicy like we accustomed to. Pakistani biryani was good. Chickpea curry lovely but too oily. Kids had chicken shawarma which was...lovely & tender. Chicken kebabs were mediocre.More

I can't believe how bad an experience I have just had. Bad service, bad food, bad staff and bad hygiene. I left the food uneaten and got out in a hurry before the she monster behind the counter glowered at me again.

Had lunch here after reading some reviews. The veg curry was tasty, filling and cheap. The surroundings are basic which is ok for the price. One server seemed to glower at me the whole time and overall service wasn't overly friendly. Luckily I didn't go...to the WC until after I'd eaten and to say it was horrendous is putting it mildly. Later I did check out the food hygiene rating as assessed by Edinburgh Council, you can make up your own mind.More

I had a two curry lunch for 11.00,. The general curry had very little flavour ,and no depth of spice flavours with a watery sauce,the second curry, chicken Tikka Masala tasted nothing like a Tikka masala, it was so badly cooked and without any authenticity...whatsoever,and the rice was tasteless also. This was my worst curry ever, they need to buy a good curry cookbook ,and use it !More

Absolutely lovely curry! Mind you, if you've never been before, just ask what to do at the gelato desk and you'll be clued in. Went here after a really hard going day and the food they had was amazing. Really comforting and no frills, the...staff were really friendly too! Didn't get to try the gelato but maybe next time :)More

A favourite of mine as a student at Edinburgh uni literally Aons ago, I thought I would take my boyfriend to experience somewhere I had talked about loads! Quality Canteen Curry is the best way to describe it. Tables are tight, you might have to...share your personal space, so if you don't like that, don't go! Massive portions of wholesome good for you food. Glad I went back.More

If they aren't massive curry fans, then I suggest you don't go there.
