Had a lovely meal here last night. We had bought a groupon deal which allowed £20 worth of food for £10. Food was freshly prepared and very tasty and staff were attentive. Only negative was there was no music on in the background and we were the only 2 in the restaurant to begin with so there was a bit... More

Had a lovely night with a large group of friends here. The restaurant had laid out a long oval table which meant we could all interact quite easily and share food etc so had a good feel to the place. There is an extensive menu to choose from and all fairly reasonably priced apart from one thing which unfortunately I... More

On a recent break in Edinburgh. We found ourselves in Haymarket, looking for something to eat. We called into The Verandah Indian Restaurant. The meal was fantastic. We had some poppadoms with chilli, & mango chutney to start. I had a mixed tandoori with nan bread and my friend had a chicken bhuna with pilau rice. The meals was fantastic... More

I love my country food! Super cooking, but very costly... if they could give free salads with each meal.. that would be perfect

The title is not an exaggeration! I ate here opting for the tandori prawns (£14.95 for FOUR prawns) and the chana masalan (£4.25). Not only were their only FOUR prawns averaging £3.75 each, they were overcooked and dry as toast. Restaurant manager Hizal (not a nice man) initially stated this was the size of a standard order and feigned offence,... More

In response to the above review, the order was made on the 13 Jan 17 via Deliveroo at 19:10 and Deliveroo driver left the restaurant at approx 19.45. We received a phone call from Deliveroo around 20.30 to tell us that the customer was not happy with the food portion. Shortly after reviewer called to complain about the delivery time... More

I've had takeaway from the Verandah previously, and really liked their brinjal bhaji. I went for sit-in once, but the portions seemed much smaller, which was disappointing. I recently bought a Groupon deal. The deal page describes the fact that all dishes are "available for takeaway", and nowhere on the page or the fine print of the voucher did it... More

Confused ........... Is the reviewer complaining about Groupon or the Restaurant ? After reading the review I am clear reviewer was told by the restaurant about the voucher and deal and this is something he/she should take it up with Groupon. PLEASE READ the fine prints I copied from Groupon page. The Fine Print Expires 4 months after purchase (excl.... More

Very friendly with good food. They made some good suggestions about what to order and were helpful in advising us about what we would like. We went on New Years Eve. Good experience

The wife and I went last night whilst visiting Edinburgh. We had Chicken Tikka Masala, Keema Rice and Naan and the food was excellent! The best Keema Naan we've ever had. Prices were reasonable too, if you're in the area check them out.

Visited this place today as I knew that it used to have a good reputation. I arrived at 1.25 expecting to have lunch. On entering I noticed the place was empty apart from two waiters , one of whom was eating. The other just looked at me inquisitively, and I asked if they were doing lunches. He appeared totally disinterested... More
