At our Awards ceremony, the Award for BEST IN SCOTLAND was ungraciously received by another Scottish restaurant in another city. We graciously therefore transfer the Award to this highly deserving and highly appreciative restaurant. It's a tiny 4-seater, and the first opened (in 1981) by Wali Tasar Uddin, MBR, JP. It is now run by his nephew, Foysol Choudhury, who describes it as'reassuringly low-key' serving northern Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine. It's a pretty, relaxing restaurant with cane chairs and bamboo-slatted wall blinds, a clever and effective illusion.. DBAC says: I first ate there, well, let me see, a very long time ago, the decorations were unfussy, in fact simple but never-the-less effective and the food served in generous portions. We continue to get many appreciative reports:

“First class restaurant by any standards. The welcome and the ambience of this establishment is all that once could wish for, when sitting down to dine. The welcome is friendly, the staff attentive and the food is flavoursome and well prepared. We have been before and do recommended it. We are fortunate in having restaurant so this calibre in Edinburgh.' ANON. '

The staff were very polite and welcoming with an excellent neat table. The candle was a beautiful touch. Been before but only for a takeaway, even better sitting in. Would definitely return. Thank you staff, you were all fabby! L.H.

‘coming here for two years, and always recommend it.' FC.

'We have been coming here for twenty five years, you may think us biased. However, although visiting once a year, we have never had a poor meal. The extremely high standard of food, delicate flavours of creamy Lamb Pasanda £6.25 and Chicken Tikka Masala £6.25, are a bench mark, which other restaurants can only hope to approach.

Even after a years absence, the warm family welcome sets the mood for an excellent experience. Portions generous, menu extensive and meals very reasonably priced.' ckl. I visit quite often, always friendly, excellent food, prices reasonable. Everything is clean, including the toilets. There is no background music, which is very good, as I am hard of bearing. Friends and colleagues always impressed.' ADK. '

Second to none.' PS.
