Square Meal Review of Pataka ?

Forget flock wallpaper and plastic greenery, this Edinburgh Indian takes its design cues from celebrated Scottish artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh, with lots of intricate carved wooden booths and other creative touches – a fact not lost on novelist (and regular customer) Ian Rankin, who featured the restaurant in two of his novels. The lengthy menu has its quota of tandooris, bhunas and kormas, but it also offers some more unusual dishes – often with a regional Bengali slant: try green herb chicken, steamed salmon with spring onions, garlic and Indian vegetables or mangsho roti (a hot and spicy lamb dish served with chapatis). To drink, freshen your palate with spicy mango lassi or go straight for a pint of Caledonian 80/- or Cobra lager. The aptly named White Room can be hired for private dos.
