Ate here over a year ago and was disappointed. However, anyone can have an off day so we went back and were very pleases we did. A warm welcome, smiling service and really good food. Some dishes were quite different to a lot of restaurants such as prawns in spinach and garlic which were delicious. Overall a good dining experience... More

Lovely decor inside the restaurant - made to look like a ship as it's by the docks. Excellent choice of cuisine. I chose the chicken sishlak from the tandoor oven and it was delicious! Lovely tender meat. Side dishes were good and I enjoyed my cobra beer. Was quite quiet as it was a Thursday but still a nice atmosphere

We had a meal which was unfortunately, disappointing. I had a mixed kebab to start and it was a tiny portion. I don't know what they did to the shish but it wasn't nice! The food we had was all like mush with bits of meat plopped into it. You couldn't differentiate tastes or textures. Expensive for what it is.... More

Britannia Spice offers a range of dishes from various regions of India and Bangladesh, making it easy to select a good variety of flavours. The dishes we chose all had beautifully balanced spices and the meat was tender and juicy. Naans and pappadums were also good. We found the service friendly and attentive too. Overall, difficult to fault, and we... More

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

From its location in a former whisky bond close to the waterfront at Leith, Britannia Spice has been attracting Edinburgh's diners to its multi-ethnic blend of exotic eastern cooking since 2000. Drawing on the traditional cuisine of India, Bangladesh, Thailand and Nepal, the critically acclaimed dishes are served in a nautically-inspired interior with an airy yet intimate ambience.
