We visited on a Saturday and ordered 4 tapas dishes between 2 people. The food was highly spiced and extremely tasty. BYOB is a good thing keeping overall price down. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We were waiting few minutes because it was Saturday evening so it was busy. But when we sat and ordered, food came very quickly and it was delicious. I really like Indian cuisine and this was a real taste of India.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
