We made the mistake of visiting this establishment after a long day on our feet in Edinburgh. The service was very slow, there were a number of offers available that seemed good value. The food was as you would have expected from an Indian restaurant...More

From its location in a former whisky bond close to the waterfront at Leith, Britannia Spice has been attracting Edinburgh's diners to its multi-ethnic blend of exotic eastern cooking since 2000. Drawing on the traditional cuisine of India, Bangladesh, Thailand and Nepal, the critically acclaimed dishes are served in a nautically-inspired interior with an airy yet intimate ambience.
