|Your Capital guide to eating out and what's on at the
"WHETHER you have visited us before, or this is your first Verandah
experience, we can wish for little more than that you feel the warmth of our welcome and taste
the magic of our kitchen" - the words of Wali Uddin, dedicated to filling Scottish stomachs
with the best of Bangladesh.
We sampled from the Thali selection, complete(and filling) meals offering small portions of
different dishes from the menu, served in small bowls. My Mixed Thali comprised substantial,
luscious King Prawn Pathia, a remarkably distinguished Chicken Tikka Masallam, Lamb Rogan Josh,
brilliant Chana (Chick Peas) Masallam, Pulao Rice, Chapati and Chutneys, and Madam's dishes
included Keema Motor, Lamb Pasanda, Mixed Vegetable Bhajee and Tandoori Roti.
There are six Thalis, plus Tandoori specialities, Pungash and Boal fish delicacies, selected
dinners, vegetarian dishes, side dishes and a two-page extravaganza of Bangladeshi and North
Indian platefuls well known to Edinburgh curry eaters - Bhuna, Dhansak, Kurma, Kashmir
PS: Sample the Prawn Puri starter (£4.25). It's remarkable, as is the understated decor, the
wooden-slat wall-coverings catching the eye.
And there's a fair range of beers and lagers, including Indian Cobra.
Non Vegetarian Thali £13.95
Mixed Thali £16.95. Wine: silky smooth,
Easy drinking Bin 555 Shiraz £10.65.
