We were recommended to eat here by the host of our hotel, who eat here a lot. We booked but we neednt have as it was quite quiet for a friday night. Just on the edge of a large town with a lot of competition but it holds its own with good food and service

Went to the Delhi Diner as part of a large family group. There were 16 of us in total and we were well accommodated and received. The restaurant was well presented and clean, and and the staff attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and everyone agreed their curry was excellent, including 2 fourteen year olds and a 15 year old.... More

Friendly staff in a restaurant which has little obvious on the outside that might draw you inside. You got to go in though! It has been around for a while but the meal that we had this week was exceptionally good. A few complementary popadom got the gastric juices flowing. The Rogan Josh was full of delicious flavours rather than... More

Do not let looks deceive you, this may just look like a takeaway / eat in place, me and my partner we're a tad on the apprehensive side at first but, you should never judge a book by its cover.. The food was amazing and the service was excellent, nice and friendly staff and a cosy atmosphere.. Well worth a... More

It was a cold and stormy night, so we looked for a nearby restaurant to our wonderful B&B in Edinburgh, the Mayfield Lodge. Just 0.2 miles away, was the delightful Dehli Diner. What a find! The food was delicious, the service by our host and waiter, Jahed excellent. The ambience was very nice. Jon and I started with paratha served... More

If you are in Edinburgh you must, you really MUST order takeaway from this place. The restaurant itself is not so great to sit in, lacks coziness in my opinion - but they just know how to make amazing food. We've ordered from there 4 times already and every time we look so forward to it, because every time has... More

Our host at the Barony House recommended this restaurant and it was so good, we think of it as one of the top meals we had in Scotland. Yes, that good. The waiter was very patient with us as we are not very experienced in ordering Indian food off a menu -- he was helpful and we enjoyed his recommendations.... More
