Hubby and I used to be big fans of Ronaq. So much so that we took out of town family and friends there, including for a 50th birthday. I even organised a Christmas lunch just pre-COVID for a large group of female friends. Recently however,...we just don’t recognise the place. Our last two visits, one take away, one sit in, have been awful. Hugely over-spiced food; including yogurt/mint sauce that burned your mouth off, soggy mushroom pakora & rock hard veggie pakora in the same order, and tikka/tandoori dishes even my husband found hard to swallow. Being a bit of a korma girl, I couldn’t eat it at all. The only thing that was tolerable was the popadom. It was all SO hot. It’s such a pity, because their COVID compliance is really good (well apart from the one non-Indian behind the bar, who had no mask, yet is the one with the card machine) and as frontline healthcare workers, this is hugely important to us to protect our elderly patients. Sadly we won’t be back. When you pay restaurant prices for take away, you expect a higher standard than you’d get from a local take away, not lower. And I’m afraid that what we got was just not close to acceptable :(More

Visited last night for a meal to celebrate our Silver Wedding. The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. The food was oustanding, fresh and quality ingredients evident throughout our meals. For starters I chose the Butterfly King Prawns and my husband had...chicken tikka, both dishes were full of flavour and the King Prawns are the biggest prawns I have ever eaten and cooked to perfection. My husband said his chicken tikka was delicious. Onto the main course, I had the King Prawn Bhuna and once again the prawns were large juicy and full of flavour. My husband had the Lamb Madras and raved about how tender the lamb was and full of flavour and spices. The cheese naan bread was first class. Empty plates all round. Thank you Ronaq for making out special day a meal and experience to remember.More

The food and staff are amazing! Been come here for 5years now and can honestly say every time I’ve been there, I always leave extremely satisfied with the quality of the restaurant. Would definitely recommend the family naan and butter chicken!

We love Ronaq and booked it as we were staying at the Village Hotel which is just a 10 minute walk. Food is definitely a cut above, lovely service - and diligent attention to Covid procedures. This was the last saturday before Christmas which they...said should be their busiest weekend of the entire year - but sadly cancellations and no shows had made it less than half full due to Covid. They were particularly grateful for us supporting them and not cancelling, and we had a lovely evening. Hope all improves soon for you guys - lovely restaurant...More

Went to Ronaq with my wife. I have to say, from the moment we walked through the door, the service was exceptional. The food was very tasty and the environment in the restaurant is absolutely lovely. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough.More

First visit to Edinburgh and looked for an Indian restaurant for dinner. Was not disappointed with the Ronaq. Friendly staff, great service. They even made a special order for me. Food was excellent.

First time ordering and won’t be back. So salty and stodgy. Also, not a lot of meat compared to other places. Really disappointed.
