The food here was very good and service attentive, the only downside is the prices which impersonally think are high for Musselburgh area, they are more like aesimbirgh town centre prices

Lovely flavoursome food. Dips that go with Popadoms are fantastic. Nan breads light and fluffy & slightly crispy...yum. Service fast & friendly. The only reason I don't give it a 5 star rating is that the mixed veg curry although very tasty was frozen veg...More

About Gurkha’s"Better to die than be a coward" is the motto of the world-famous Nepalese Gurkha soldiers who are an integral part of the British Army.The potential of these warriors was first realized by the British at the height of their empire-building in the last century. The Victorians identified them as a "martial race", perceiving in them particularly masculine qualities of toughness."If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or is a Gurkha." -Sir Sam Manekshaw “There is No safer place to be then with Gurkhas” -Prince Harry
