We love visiting Punjabi Junction when in the Leith area of Edinburgh. Parking is available normally right outside the door. The restaurant offers free wifi also.

There's just nothing weak about this place: one of those 'cheap eats' that makes much better quality food than 'good' restaurants. I found the fish curry particularly delicious, and the Indian sweets are to die for, but everything is good, and you never feel short-changed.

After seeing this little Cafe on TV many years ago decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed. The food was amazing, great price and the staff were lovely. About 20 mins walk from Waverley station but well worth it. Will definitely recommend and return when up this way again.

This place never fails to excell. The food was out of this world and so cheap too. Only minor complaint. You may wait a little for service and food but not too long. Jeannie.

Beautiful freshly cooked veg samosas and pakora with dips that added a kick! Tasty curry and very friendly service. Definitely not your average curry.

The ladies served incredibly good vegetable and chicken pakoras, saag chicken and vegetable curries with rice, dips and delicious little naan bread at a recent birthday event. Without doubt the best party food I've ever eaten.
