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.

February mid week dinner so restaurant was almost empty this meant it lacked some atmosphere. This did not matter as meal was a delight and service matched it. So good I almost licked my plate clean and came back a second night. Would definitely recommend...and will be returning on our next trip to Edinburgh.More

Beautifully decorated with nautical theme - e.g. canvas sails used as dividers between tables, lots of polished woodwork and spotlessly clean. Delicious starters and main courses, however not currently serving desserts as according to waiter, they find that customers don't generally want these nowadays (maybe...because main courses pretty filling). Reasonably priced, large menu and good selection of beers and wines. Waiter service was a bit eccentric but very pleasant and friendly. One of our group GF and plenty of options available (though not GF poppadoms). Very handy if you happen to be staying at Holiday Inn Express next door. Would happily eat there again.More

Had a carryout and looked at the menu online. Got 2 starters, veg pakora and onion baji which online were £3.95 each. Got 2 small bits of onion baji and 5 bits of pakora for £11.45 mmmmm not the price online and definitely not value...with the extremely small portions. Would not go back and would not recommend!More

Still the best Curry Resturant in Scotland! I have eaten in many and varied Indian and Nepalese resturants throughout the UK, But none of them will be better that the Britannia. Unfortunately I have not been able to visit for 2 years but the welcome...I received from Abu was amazing! Talk about the return of the prodical son! The Jaipuri Chicken was to die for and the detail to service was above and beyond! I won't be leaving it 2 years again!More

Amazing spot! Lots of delicious options even for vegans and vegetarians! I got the Karahi and the Saag Paneer and they were delicious with the perfect amount of spice. The portions are deceptively big and the food was more than enough! The owner is very...friendly and the decor is very interesting and well thought out. Would definitely recommend coming here!More
