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.

Friends took us to the restaurant before the recent six nations rugby and what a treat it turned out to be. Not sure we’ve ever been to this style of Indian before but wow, it was fantastic. Probably the best curry I’ve ever eaten to...be honest. Would love to go back when they have their full menu own. Would definitely recommend if you’re in Edinburgh.More

Went with three friends on a cold Wednesday night. I’d eaten here a few times over the years and had always been impressed but this was a different level. Really fresh, zingy, tasty food. Starters of pani puri (sensational. So many different flavours complimenting each...other), spiced cauliflower (I missed the name) and samosa chaat were sublime. The Pana puri and samosa chaat in particular - the latter really made the samosas come alive with the sauce over them. For mains: the lamb hariyali was perfectly spiced whilst I was really jealous of my friend’s king prawn chilli garlic number - superb. I ordered a potato and cucumber pickle to go alongside. I really enjoyed the flavours of that. Will be back. Really, really good. I wanted to try the momos but they took half an hour and we were hungry!More

Took my wife there for a birthday treat. A s it was our 2nd visit we had an idea what to expect. Boy we weren’t disappointed. Even although it was quite busy we were welcomed in and shown to our table. Our order was taken...by a friendly waiter who had a good knowledge of the menu. The food arrived within a reasonable time considering how busy it was. The food as like our last visit, excellent, one small gripe the rice wasn’t as hot as I would have like, but still lovely. A pet hate of mine is cold plates, that wasn’t the case here, well done. Is it worth a visit, without a doubt it is, we certainly will. G.More

Best meal I’ve had for a long time. The chilli momos were sublime- as were the naans. It’s right near hay market station and the staff and friendly, fun and expert at their jobs. Fast service. Fully recommend

Absolutely incredible food and service. We ordered vegetable pakoras and chilli chicken momos to start, wonderful, never eaten anything like it, we also ordered a vegetable Everest curry and khorsani Masala chicken, described as extremely hot, the waitress confirmed this at the time of ordering...and said it would numb your taste buds, my husband said she was right, it was all absolutely delicious, beautiful light pilau rice was a meal in itself and a hot buttery peshwari naan was out of this world. Apart from the truly wonderful food the all female waitresses were an olympic team of well organised women who gave such attention to detail, they presented the food to the table, like a slow dance move with a roll of their wrist, it sounds weird but it was very subtle probably I was the only one that noticed, I also witnessed one waitress quickly clean under a table with a small mop, again sounds a bit off putting but when you go it’s all part of the care. The restaurant was absolutely packed and hosted a mixture of tourists and locals. At the moment with money being tight eating out is a luxury if you only go to one restaurant this year, pick this one. Thank You for beautifully cooked food and first class service. I can’t wait to rebook.More

Arriving in the city quite late, we chanced on Khukuri without a booking and were recommended by a diner on his way out. It was a real find - interesting menu with dishes we hadn’t tried before, beautifully-presented food, actually the best Indian-Nepalese meal I...think I have ever had. Team was friendly and attentive, the bill was a pleasant surprise - really good value. We will definitely be back..More

We've been to this place before and have always found the quality/taste excellent. They have a good variety of vegetarian dishes and authentic Nepali dishes - different from the Indian dishes we usually have. The momos are a definite must-try and for anyone looking for...different curries, the Nepali curry dishes will not disappoint. This restaurant attracts a good crowd, so I'd recommend booking the table to avoid any disappointments.More

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
