It is one of my favorite Indian restaurants in Edinbra. There is a kindly service, the food tastes delicious and spicy and the prices are ok. For a nice evening with indian food the right place.

Looks like it would be a nice authentic restaurant but it’s just a bit basic and nothing special. I ordered a chicken dosa but it’s really just a potato dosa with 4 tiny bits of dry chicken and the coconut sambol was split. Very disappointing...More

Some restaurants offering Indian food seem to think that little variation between dishes is enough to keep customers happy. I can honestly say Mezbaan is not one of those places. Each dish was delicious as it was different from the next. The service was swift...More

Great service, food and value for money. Very lowkey. Would revisit and recommend! The food was flavourful and spiced, this is exactly what I want from Indian food.

My husband is from Birmingham, and Brummy's know curry! Mezbaan's has become our weekly treat and family catch up spot with my equally (curry) picky bro in law and his partner. Despite the argument over the virtue (or not) of a peshwari naan we never...More

We like Southern Indian cuisine and seek it out where we can. We found this small restaurant to be friendly and the staff advised us on our choices. The dry lamb dish was stunning! The freshly prepared food was really delicious. It's an unpretentious place...More

Have been here a few times now . Don’t be put off by the slightly dated decor . Range of interesting and unusual dishes . BYOB or they have a licence if you prefer . Good size portions and excellent value

Great little south Indian restaurant, despite a fairly short menu the big plus here is that they serve Dosa`s. Good food and value to be found here.

Another gorgeous dinner, we’ll keep on coming back. Fish polichathu and then the chicken tikka Biryani spices to follow were so nice, peshwari naan and a cold king fisher lager, absolutely loved it. Peshawari

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
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

"Refreshingly different" is how our customers describe us...Scotland has a few restaurants that specialise in south Indian cuisine. We are however the only restaurant dedicated to south Indian food in the pleasant city of Edinburgh. Our goal is to bring to Scotland especially Edinburgh the glorious array of exotic south Indian cuisine.
