Description: 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.

Surprisingly light and well seasoned for Indian food. Good wine list too. Recommend the Chilean Merlot which goes perfectly with the food. Lovely service. Easy parking. Excellent family owned restaurant.

This used to be up there as a must eat when staying at express next door, last couple of visits however have been disappointing
Food not great , average I would say when it used to be top class
Shame really as I will consider alternatives next time

Absolutely great Indian restaurant. The owner personally came over and thanked us for coming in. Me and my family will definitely be coming here again.

Been to loads of curry houses all over the city and this one ranks as average, nothing wrong with the meal, just feel that there are a lot of far better curries to be had in Edinburgh

The waiters aren't au fait with spacial awareness. They constantly invaded our space, be it picking up a chair next to us and banging it against us, stretching over you very closely to pick something up, asking us four times if we're ready to order and the head waiter (who appeared to be visually impaired) actually leant against our table to see if we were finished our starters...we weren't!!! There was a comical Fawlty Towers moment when we were still eating our starters. The waiter wheeled by our main courses, in what can only be described as a hospital food trolley with dirty dishcloths on it, stopped momentarily next to us before realising we weren't ready and then wheeled away again at high speed! 5 minutes later he wheeled back again with the same main courses slightly colder! The head waiter constantly did a lap of the tables too, every couple of minutes he walked passed our table, very off putting . The food was very average, not worth the money and instantly forgettable unlike the very poor service!!
