“Simply the best”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 via mobile

Me and my partner have eaten here so many times and been through the entire menu and every time its better than the last. Eaten at so many other indian restaurants so know what to look for. The shish never fails to live up to our high expectations. New menu too so more to choose from. The service is second to none and always happy to lend a hand when not sure what to order. All in all its the best curry house around.

“Don't miss it!!!”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

We were heading into town from the Races and booked online enroute, not a big restaurant, about 14 or so tables,(book to avoid disappointment), five of us bowled in were shown to our table and honestly we were served one the best Curries I have had and I do think I know my Curries, reasonably priced, good table service and good size portions.

“Expensive & Tasteless ”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Had a few friends round last & opted for a take away from here as our 1st choice was very busy. So 4 of us, no starters, 4 main meals (chicken & lamb) Madras etc nothing fancy. 2 mushroom rice & 3 nan breads which were tasteless lumps of dough. The Peshwari had some flavour, but no garlic, or chilli & coriander on the others! Cost £49.50 to deliver 2 miles along the rd. No poppadoms or anything. Absolutely shocking is an understatement!! Definitely won't be back!! Considering I was at the new establishment in Musselburgh last week, with the same friends & we had numerous alcoholic drinks each, 2 starters & the same 4 meals, 2 rice & 3 nans & poppadoms etc for £88 sitting in. Well, what can I say, you do the maths!!!!
