Review - The Verandah

Best Local Indian Restaurant near Dalry Road Edinburg EH11

The Verandah in Edinburgh is so cozy

The Verandah in Edinburgh is so cozy and romantic. Well, maybe not all that romantic but it's cozy, well decorated, and friendly service. But above all - great food. My sister and I came here for dinner my first night in Edinburgh. We took a chance on Verandah and glad we did. The food here is freshly prepared and cooked which I loved. I ordered the Bangladeshi Shatkora lamb with pulao rice. The lamb pieces in the dish were not fatty but very tender. Overall a good dish. Sissy got the Methi gosht which I wish I would have gotten. It was cooked perfectly and the sauce was light but filling. A great dining experience.

Great Indian food

The vegetable pakora was delicious, served with a great yogurt sauce with a one of a kind taste. The owner was not going to give out any hints on the ingredients though. "Yogurt and Mint and a bunch more" was all he'd say. Chicken Vindaloo wasn't on the menu, but they do serve it. It was properly spicy, though to my American taste, it could use a pinch more salt. Saag Paneer was excellent, the best I've had. The spinach was not as pureed as I'm used to back in the States, but that made it only better. The Paneer was nice and soft, a sign that it's not old. The Dal was very good as well. Wonderfully, I don't have the typical heavy feeling that I usually get when I eat Indian food. It was fairly late on a Thursday, and there were only a couple other tables. This allowed me to talk a little bit with the owner, and get a recommendation on another item to try on the menu when I return in a few days.?

Delicious Indian food

"We have never tasted such delicious Indian food in a long time. The starter was light and aromatic, the flavours in all the sauces tasted fresh. The main course was fantastic. It's the first time we have had a meal where we feel pleasantly full. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was pleasant."

I ordered the most delicious meal

I've never written one of these review things before but today felt compelled! I've been visiting Verandah for years and always order the same dish. This time I ordered the Bangladeshi Shatkora chicken I felt I hadn't been eating very healthily for a few days so thought I'd indulge in something a little different. Cant recommend it highly enough. I ordered the most delicious meal. I absolutely enjoyed my meal, service was brilliant and incredibly swift.. Waiters are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Nice atmosphere, lovely decor and warm atmosphere.

First visit and I was impressed

I visited Verandah with my family last weekend. It was our first visit and I was impressed with the food, service and ambiance. For the quality of the dishes and the location it is very reasonably priced. The staff were accommodating but at the same time not overbearing. A great discovery – we will be back!?
