Good food and good service! Went for a curry after seeing it online. Nothing bad to say, good all round! Even prepared a dessert we requested which not many people order or know about! Thanks to the management for that!

On a recent visit to the Ocean Drive area of Edinburgh we called into Britannia Spice for a meal. Being a wheelchair user, we had to use the rear entrance which, in the dark, was a bit tricky to manage, made more so needing to hold two sets of double doors open to get in. Nevertheless when a member of... More

My companion and I dined there last night. While our meal was at best passable, our fellow diners encountered some problems with their meal and the way the management dealt with the issue has left me as cold as their dining room. I was appalled to hear the manager call a customer 'disgusting' because she had not enjoyed her meal.... More

My wife and I stay in the nearby Holiday Inn Express twice a year and always eat here at least once per visit. We do not eat Asian/Indian/Thai food as a rule so we are in no way connoisseurs but always find the food very appetising and the staff welcoming and courteous. So much so that this visit we ate...

This is the second time we've visited this restaurant and again the food was very good. The service here is also very good and the restaurant is very nice inside. Good location at Ocean terminal, will definitely go back when in the area again.

Visited as staying at hotel nearby. Had popadoms & chutneys & they were ok . Had a lamb jalfrezi for main with a veg pilau. Lovely , lamb was tender & cooked to perfection. The meal was generously spiced & rice was also good. Staff friendly & service was very good.

Visited on a Groupon deal, given a choice of table, restaurant has a nice boat theme. We had our order taken quickly and popadoms arrived with our drinks. Drinks not too expensive, quick service portions good and a nice choice of different dishes. Staff were very attentive. Our little boys loved it! Our 8 year old said I ate too... More
