“As in 2015. - Still - "Value for Money"! - :O)”

At the beginning of this month (Nov. 2016) I visited Shamoli three times this year, during my only one-week stay in Edinburgh. - Until now, during my 3 stays in Edinburgh (2013-2016), I have visited Shamoli 10 times in Total. - Every time has always been such an EXCELLENT visit, with the atmosphere, fine service, and perfect food. - Thanks to Jaynal and his fine staff! - See you next time! - Best Regards - Kim Frank - Helsinge - Denmark - :O)

“Best restaurant on the Mile of any type.”

It was a while before I visited this restaurant for the first time as it's a bit out of the way, but it's since become my favourite in the area. The quality and variety of the food are both exceptional, the service is reliably good, and they have an excellent selection of vegetarian items on their menu. 

It's rarely difficult to find seats, in which case I would always opt for a takeaway and has become my first choice when I am hosting family or visitors to Edinburgh or organising leaving-dos. If you're not interested in gimmicky tourist places and just want some really well-made, authentic and flavourful food, definitely give this place a try. I can especially recommend the balti sabzi, perhaps with a side of sag aloo. I go here often and could rave about it for hours.

Their prices are also very reasonable, considering the high quality of the food and central location.

“Very Good Restaurant”

Very good restaurant that offers both Indian and Thai food. A large selection of dishes is available. My wife and I decided to go for Thai and wasn't disappointed. The service was very good. I would certainly go back to this restaurant.

“Stairway to heavenly food!”

This is our fourth visit to Shamoli and each time the service and food have been excellent. The biggest problem for us is deciding whether to choose Thai or Indian as both are lovely. This trip we had Thai starters and Indian mains and it worked beautifully! 
Jaynal the owner miraculously remembers us even though we are annual visitors to the North. If you are looking for delicious food in Edinburgh this is definitely where you should be heading, there's no shop front at ground level, climb the few steps and enjoy two great cuisines.

“Great place for dinner with friends!”

Everything was wonderful from the food to the service. Definitely would go back again! Went for dinner with two friends. Option to order from either menu choice (Thai or Indian) was great.
