A bit out the way but an incredible curry none the less. Bring your own alcohol as they do not have a licenced bar with a no-corking fee. Next time I visit Edinburgh will be coming here again. Best curry in Edinburgh? Maybe so!

Brilliant service, great curries and the portions are absolutely massive. The Kismot Killer is definitely only worth doing if you're a serious Chilli head, if you struggle with a Phaal or a Naga-based curry then forget it, times them by 20.

Some good food, and I like the free BYOB policy. But the vegetarian food was terribly bland. A curry restaurant should sell curry.

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of

just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
