Single sitting...Frontier Chicken Chilli. Superb rich taste, probably the best I've ever tasted!! Onion Bhaji to start which was also full of taste. Excellent service/suggestions from main senior/owner staff. Other staff a little robotic and impersonal...slight feeling of getting you out asap!

Stumbled across this fantastic restaurant on a night away from Yorkshire with work, got to be one of the best Indian's we have ever eaten in. The service was incredible and so personable, strongly advise you won't be disappointed. Well done!

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.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
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
