My wife and I have been several times to Shezan over the years and the food never fails to live up to expectations. One of, if not the best Indian Restaurants in Edinburgh. Great attentive service to go along with the excellent food. D.Finlay

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
