As above, delicious curry, silky rice; yum! The naan was a big let down, and didn’t taste so fresh. Overall, very good.

Super fast service, with good prices.Small place thought and if you are unlucky with a family with kids next to you, then...good luck. Food was very good, cooked very well and not that spicy! I had the special lamb, that was cooked perfect.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
