2 for 1 at Ginger Restaurant

Lovers of fine Indian cuisine should look no further than Ginger Restaurant. Locals and visitors alike can be treated to rich curries, from mild to spicy and meat filled or vegetable themed. The menu focuses on the Biryani and Tandoori dishes, featuring such classics as lamb, chicken and king prawn curries, but their speciality the Mixed Grilled Platter is an exquisitely spicy delight, consisting of chef choices of barbeque that creates a delicious experience for the taste buds.

Seafood options of prawns, be they regular of king sized, come swimming in Korma, Madaras or Karai sauce but the special of the sea is the delectable Macha Ko Jhol, a dish of diced pangasius fish prepared in a medium sauce with rich coconut milk, making it both a tameable and exotic dish. If the kids don’t fancy something spicy their own set menu offers more familiar food such as chicken nuggets and fish fingers, but if they do feel like venturing out their palates there is the mild Ginger Delight, a small portion of creamy chicken korma or tasty chicken tikka masala with rice or chips.

Ideally placed, Ginger Restaurant finds itself next to the National Museum of Scotland, Holyrood Park and a short walk from Edinburgh Castle, making it the perfect spot for a filling lunch or a delicious dinner after a day of absorbing Scottish culture.

    The food here is awesome. It is so full of flavour and they will make the dishes as mild or as spicy as you want. I've been several times and it's consistently good. Service is very attentive without being in your face and they genuinely appreciate compliments about the food. It is easily the best curry I have had! "
