Another sign of Easter Road’s creeping gentrification, this well-established family-run Indian is a cut above the local norm and has become renowned for its honest cooking, creativity and sheer value. The decor shows some contemporary flourishes, while the menu eschews curry-house clichés in favour of, say, sonfiyani machli (roasted monkfish in mustard marinade), piri-piri poussin or grilled quail in spiced yoghurt. There are also some ambitious curries including a mixed seafood version with coconut and saffron, plus Hyderabadi biryanis cooked in sealed pots and some interesting veggie offerings (try the whole baby aubergines in peanut and yoghurt sauce). Despite occasional wobbles in the open kitchen and out front, this is one of Edinburgh’s most engaging examples of Indian-style home cooking. Takeaways and local deliveries, too.
