Not only that, the Shish Mahal was one of the first, if not the first, Fully Licensed Indian Restaurant throughout Edinburgh and certainly the longest serving Fully Licensed Indian Restaurant open today. As East Lothian's most visited Indian restaurant, the Shish Mahal has gained a status for its faithful yet creative cuisine. Established by the Khan Family in 1979, much of the Shish Mahal's achievements are to the credit of Idris Khan, who has been the driving force behind the acceptance of the Shish Mahal for over 30 years. Through the gentle introduction of more and more authentic dishes from the subcontinent, more discerning palates have developed. Their menu is balanced between the need to maintain genuine all-time favourites and urge to explore new styles of cuisine. At the Shish Mahal they are proud to present the best of both worlds.
