The best curry in Edinburgh and portion sizes are perfect. Sides were also spot on. The Management should invest in lighting up the place.

This resturant is well worth a visit. Tremendous selections of Indian food. Friendly and attentive service. Cold Cobra beer. Plenty of Nan and rice to choose from which adds to the curry of your choice. We would recommend.

First time at this Indian restaurant. Service was attentive. Starters of chicken and King prawn pakora were not that great. Bit bland. Saved by the accompanying sauces. Main courses were very tasty. Would go back but give starters a miss.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

This new Indian restaurant in the centre of Edinburgh���s New Town has carved out a little niche for itself amongst the art galleries and antique shops along Dundas Street. Open for lunch and dinner, The Spice Pavilion attracts a well-heeled crowd of art lovers, and the interior ��� a modern space inspired by the rich colours of colonial India ��� is a stylish choice for both leisurely or business lunches and a romantic spot for evening meals. The kitchen���s philosophy is to take away the focus from heat and shift it to herbs and spices, giving the curries at The Spice Pavilion lovely fresh flavours which are complimented by an impressive range of wines from Australia and Italy.
