Having just returned from a night away in St. Andrews, we decided to eat in this restaurant on the way back to the borders. Service was poor but the food, when we got it, was excellent and deliciously cooked and served. We had not eaten in this restaurant for 10+ years but have to say, we enjoyed ourselves and look forward to the next time. Maybe the two waiters will have got their act together and look after their diners a bit better?

Had vegetable pakora which was so fresh and tasty. I had chicken tikka which was THE BEST ever.The flavours were fantastic and I really can't wait to go back. Each waiter and the owner were so attentive that it was a great pleasure to be there. Will not waist my money and time going to any other Indian restaurant to be let down with tasteless food. Thanks to the Verandah for an experience instead of just our tea. AVRIL AND ALAN

Located at the Haymarket end of Dalry Road, a area blighted seemingly forever by Edinburgh's notorious - and still unfinished - tram debacle, The Verandah is a small (single shop-front) but first class restaurant, specialising in Bangladeshi cuisine. Regrettably, it's been some time since we visited but Foysol, the proprietor, greeted us personally and chatted while we waited for our starters. The food is excellent: my wife's Mach Kebab (fish) was delicately spiced in crispy batter, served with a sweet-spicy sauce while my Prawn Puri had a good bite to it. Her Chicken Rezala and my Green Herb Lamb were also excellent and obviously fresh-prepared. We shared 1 rice & 1 Naan - quite enough and we couldn't manage dessert.. Wednesday night was quiet - a nice touch was the Chef popping out to make sure the customers were enjoying the food - but can be very busy at weekends, particularly when big sporting events are on, so best book ahead. Been a customer, on and off, for years but the standard remains invariably high - definitely recommended.

Had a weekend stay in Edinburgh and had a look online for an Indian Restaurant close to where we were staying after reading all the great reviews we decided to book a meal. We have to say we were not disappointed. It was a Sunday night and it was quiet but the staff were really welcoming and friendly great service and the food was fantastic and plenty of it. We also took advantage of the online offer which made our meal excellent value for money. We will recommend the Verandah Restaurant to all our family and friends and will definately be going again when we are in Edinburgh.

A very friendly restaurant with excellent food. We have been to many of the tandoori restaurants in Edinburgh and The Verandah punches well above its weight. A relatively small restaurant which enhances the atmosphere but makes it important to book ahead especially if Clint Eastwood is in town!
