Verandah reviews



By Iain M.

The service was very good & attentive. The atmosphere was relaxed. My wife ordered the Bangladeshi Shatkora Chicken and I ordered the Methi Lamb Gosht. This was the most amazing meal we have ever had. If you ever get the chance to eat at the Verandah in Edinburgh do it you will not be disappointed.

Verandah is awesome. I came here with my friend’s and we were treated to a fantastic meal. The food was fantastic. I was impressed with the thoughtful menu - all allergies and diets are catered for and they can change items to suit you - and the dishes were all well presented and tasted great. I had prawn puri starter and delicious methi chicken for my main, followed by an exquisite mango flavour kulfi for dessert. YUM. From what I've seen and heard I'd put Verandah the number one restaurant in Edinburgh. Try it!

I am very disappointed to read your comments, can you please confirm the date you took the take away. I have spoken with the chef and he cannot remember any take away with the dishes you mentioned. We take every complain very seriously and I want to get to the bottom of. I will really appreciate your co-operation. ThanksfoysolVerandah@aol. Com

Extremely Disappointing! Having read the reviews of the Verandah we got a carry out for 3 people, all of which was barely edible. The rice in all 3 dishes was very greasy, the King Prawn Biryani had 5 medium sized prawns in it and very little sauce; the Sag Paneer was a total mush and most of it went in the bin; the lamb Biryani had not much lamb and again very little sauce. The Peshwari nan was doughy and was more like a plain nan. All in all I would say this was one of the worst Indian carry outs we have ever had, and I am most dubious as to who has written the 5 star reviews!

Verandah is a small Indian restaurant on Dalry Road. It was recently redecorated, and features pink walls, wooden tables and chairs. Meals begin with a plate of papadam served with chutney and 2 other sauces, one brown and the other green. We started with the Verandah Mixed of appetizers, which included chicken kebab, lamb kebab, tandoori king prawn, vegetable pakora, chicken pakora, and sheek kebab. We liked the chicken kebab the best, as well as the other. I had a glass of white wine which was very good. For the entrees we shared 2 dishes. The Chicken Joypuri was cooked in a blend of mushroom sauce and spices. Sag Panir Dupiaza was cubes of fresh homemade cheese cooked with spinach chunks of onions, tomato, green peppers and spices. Both were good, but we enjoyed the Chicken Joypuri most. We had an order of Puri with 2 large pieces of the puffy bread. Service was prompt and attentive throughout the meal. The prices at The Verandah have increased slightly from what they were, but the restaurant still features quality food at a reasonable rate.

The Verandah serves best Indian food. I have been a regular customer for last 17 years, food and service has always been fantastic.

Food was ok but I think the owners have been logging in and adding their own reviews to this page. Food was very overpriced, more than a £5 for a bottle of cobra as well.

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.

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.


By Simon C.

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! Excellent! 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.


By Jane H.

I come to the Verandah restaurant frequently and the welcome, cleanliness, service and food are consistently excellent.

From entering into the restaurant to leaving it the staff are always very friendly and polite offering first rate service.

The food is always fantastic and if anything it is almost too much, however I always manage to finish it.

I will definitely recommend it to friends and family.

My family had a great meal at The Verandah Restaurant on Dalry Road, This little restaurant lies almost across the road from Haymarket Station.

the restaurant is pretty spotless and the walls are a source of entertainment, adorned with photographs of the famous.

The food is Indian and they serve the best dhal in Edinburgh. My favourite dish is rogon jhosh, lamb cooked with tomatoes and garlic and fragrant with spices, but not those of a fiery nature.

Their nan bread is good and lamb pista pasanda is also delicious. Service was excellent.


By Jane G.

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 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.

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 dining 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.

I was surprised to see Clint Eastwood photo at The Verandah Restaurant, in Dalry Road.

I am a big fan of him and I never thought he would go to an Indian Restaurant in Edinburgh. I must admit he made a great choice because Verandah serves best Indian food in town.

We had Chana puree and Mixed Starters it was very tasty and fresh. For the first time in my life I tried the Bangladeshi Boal Tarkari it was different class the only worry is the bones.

I can still feel the spices in my mouth it was EXCELLENT. My partner had Tandoori Chicken with nan bread.


By Stewart J.

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.

I took my girlfriend at The Verandah Restaurant in Dalry Road, for her birthday as a friend in the office said it was the only place in Edinburgh where you could have a curry and be totally romantic.

It was, she loved the décor, all the flowers. We sat in the window table, we had a table that felt so far from anyone else, it was like I had planned it to perfection.

When we arrived we were treated like royalty and that didn't stop the whole night through, the service was fantastic.

The food was also magnificent with a whole delightful range of modern Indian food such as much kebabs for starters and a mouth-watering lamb shatkora with the most amazing sauce for main.

The wine list was pretty good too with a wide range of rather lovely if not expensive looking wines.

I'd definitely recommend it; in fact we're taking the in-laws when they’re in Edinburgh.
