I have frequented this restaurant over the years but not on a regular basis. Interested to note the byob wine and beer policy with no corkage keeping drink element of bill low. Really good food, attentive service and comfortable seating. Recommended!

Wide choice of dishes cooked in excellent way. Friendly attentive staff. You can bring your own wine which is always welcome. Slightly expensive but it's quality all the way here with this amazing restaurant which has been around for decades. Advisable to book. Recommended.

Been going here for over 20 years and always been good but..... The last 2 times ive visited the food has gone down hill. The chicken was hard when one bit into it. Food doesnt taste as good so time for me to look elsewhere.

Me, my husband and daughter have been going to Omar Khayyan for years and absolutely love it! The food is always delicious, the staff really friendly and at a very reasonable price. Chicken madras is must try!

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
