Large airy premises providing a good range of Indian food. Service is quick and friendly and for a city centre restaurant reasonably priced. Decent but limited business lunch menu. Watch out for the poppadum trick. You will be asked if you would like poppadums almost...More

Alone in Edinburgh I passed Omar Khayyam going to a meeting. That looks good for tonight I thought and I was absolutely right. Great food and friendly service. Just what is needed at the end of the day. Highly recommended!

Management is not good. Terrible food. No salt & spice. Expensive food. Totally useless. Disgusting experience. Would never recommend it to anyone! They do not serve authentic food. Don't even know how to make basic bhindi bhaji. Tomato soup had powdered lumps, not dissolved properly...More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.

citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
