The Verandah Tandoori Restaurant, 17 Dalry Road, EH11 2BQ, Edinburgh

We ordered take out from here on a Wednesday evening which isn't I imagine their busiest night. However, they took over an hour and a half to deliver it & that was only after us ringing for a second time.

Food was ok but nothing special. I have a feeling that they had completely forgotten about us and had to prepare something in a hurry after the second call; my Pasanda looked very similar to the Korma and the lamb was cut length ways in long thin strips as if to cook it quicker. My partners Jalfrezi was a better dish than mine but the naan was cold and a bit average.

The price looked a little higher than what I am used to paying and I don't think it was matched by an improvement in quality.

We have enjoyed three takeaways from this restaurant in the last month and all of them were excellent. Food is delicious very tasty, and the portions are perfect. We have tried the mixed grill, rogan josh, lamb methi gost, lamb bhuna, lamb saag and their pakoras and dips are lovely. Staff are friendly and are happy to let you sit and have a refreshment whilst you wait on your order. It has always been busy when I've called in. Price wise we find okay especially as we know the food is going to be what we expect!

There's a picture of Clint Eastwood on one of their walls as he himself dined there!

I'd recommend this little restaurant and we will continue to use it again and again!

Well done to the CHEF and to all the rest of the staff, thanks, keep up the good work.

3.5 from RossDouglas (15%) on May 4th, 2008 (10 years ago)

The Verandah Tandoori Restaurant, 17 Dalry Road, EH11 2BQ, Edinburgh

The Verandah Tandoori is arguably one of Edinburgh's best Indian restaurants. Prices are reasonable if a tad on the higher side for an Indian restaurant but the food is superb.

Deliveries to your home can be sketchy at times but given that this venue does not have a dedicated delivery service you take your chance.

The Verandah Tandoori has a good atmosphere and good service.

The Verandah Tandoori Restaurant, 17 Dalry Road, EH11 2BQ, Edinburgh

I went to the Verandah Restaurant with high expectations after reading a lot of hype over the last few years. I was not disappointed one bit, situated on Dalry Road, Edinburgh. The greeting was warm and attentive with a classy yet relaxed feel.

We started with king prawn puree and my partner a mach kebab both very tasty and just the right portion size. Mains of shatkora chicken and murgh e ada with rice, peshwari naan. All I can say, Indian fine dinning at it's best. I have nothing but the greatest compliments for this unbelievable restaurant, it was quite superb and an experience well worth the cost. The service was absolutely perfect and spot-on attention to detail.

I can see why this place has been around for over 25 years and will certainly recommend it and will return with family and friends soon.

The Verandah Tandoori Restaurant, 17 Dalry Road, EH11 2BQ, Edinburgh

On a recent business trip to Edinburgh, I was craving for some delicious Indian food, and I have to say I was happy when a colleague recommended Verandah Restaurant in Dalry Road, for a memorable dinner!

We ordered the Chana Puree and the Sheek Kababs for starter, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed these. There are a lot of exquisite entrees for the main course. The prices are pretty reasonable, and the portions are substantial too. Lamb Korma, Murgh Massala, Shatkora Chicken and the Methi Gosht were particularly good. Peshwari Nan was excellent.

The service was fast and efficient, and the waiting staff was courteous and educated about the menu options.

The Verandah Tandoori Restaurant, 17 Dalry Road, EH11 2BQ, Edinburgh

Verandah restaurant serves the best Indian food in Scotland. I have visited many restaurants over the years, and I have never tasted anything as good as what I had in Verandah.

We ordered mushroom puree and Verandah mix for starter, for main course, Shatkora chicken, sag gosht with rice and nan. It was excellent!

Staff very friendly and attentive. Table well laid and attractive, very clean, welcoming, pleasant background music. Good choice on menu. Good hot plates. Would recommend to friends. Have been before and would come back.

Verandah is a smart and stylish passage to India which serves traditional Asian cusine within contemporary surroundings compleate with linen clad tables, fresh flowers and modern wood interiors. Food and service was 10/10.

The Verandah Tandoori Restaurant, 17 Dalry Road, EH11 2BQ, Edinburgh

Usually, we are not overly partial to starters. But Verandah’s king prawn puree is sui generis, one of a kind. Made from large prawn, fresh coriander etc, it makes a fine beginning to a meal. Make sure you don't miss this yummy starter.

Two fairly common vegetable curries Vegetables Karai and Mutter Paneer turned out to be tasty delights at Verandah. Unlike at most Indian restaurants, Vegetable Karai did not come swimming in a pool of oil. It was well seasoned with a medley of Indian spices as was the Mutter Paneer.

We enjoyed these two vegetable curries with some flavorful pieces of Garlic Nan as well as rice.

On the meat side, Tandoori Chicken and Lamb Pista Pasanda demonstrated the chef's talents yet again. One bite into a chunk of tender Tandoori Chicken was enough to give us a glimpse of Nirvana. Although a little mildly spiced for our tastebuds, the Lamb Pista Pasanda gave no room for complaint.

The service was friendly and polite and the atmosphere in the restaurant was the same.

All in all, our meal at the Verandah was a delightful experience.

I went to the Verandah Restaurant in Dalry Road with my friends. We are always confused what to have so I asked the waiter to give us what he thinks is good. For starter he brought us Verandah Mix, which had a mixture of Pakura, Sheek Kebab, Lamb Kebab, Chicken Kebab and Fish Kebab. For main he brought us Shahjani Murgh, Sag Lamb and Vegetable Sambar with Pulao rice and Nan.

I must say everything tasted fantastic. Service was excellent too.

The Verandah Tandoori Restaurant, 17 Dalry Road, EH11 2BQ, Edinburgh

After reading such glowing reviews my wife and I were very excited about trying out such a fantastic restaurant that delivers. I know the build up means it had a lot to live up to but the fact is we were very disappointed.

To get to the point the portions were small and shockingly bland. I am not a "burn my mouth I love that" kinda guy and I generally usually enjoy my food thoroughly but we were both expecting a full and scrumptious meal but got neither.

The house special Kebab was a tiny selection of mouth sized mixed meaty bites that when they arrived honestly looked like someone must have eaten half of it before I got it! The morsels although beautifully tender and soft lacked taste and gusto. My wife's samosas - again small - lacked a flair and taste. The mains although creamy and rich again lacked actual taste and depth. Rice is rice and thankfully no screw up there!

Overall I would never go there again for even less famous restaurants that charge less seem to be able to deliver on the prime ingredient of taste.
