I've ordered a couple of times from the restaurant in Dalry road because the food is interesting. Ok the fish pakora was soggy but the Congura chicken and Pallipalayan chicken were tasty. However, I won't go back as there were only a few little bits...of chicken floating around.More

A group of us visited the new Southside restaurant, it's quite a small intimate place, so it seemed it would be OK. Service was a bit slow, but eventually we managed to place our order. Five minutes later, what I can only call a pub...singer started at full volume (remember a very small place), so much so I could not hear any of my companions speaking. A few minutes later I just gave up and left. The rest of our group said the food was very good. I would loved yo have tried it.More

Delicious, authentic and freshly cooked southern Indian and Sri Lankan food. The dosa was beautifully crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Ceylon lamb curry was beautifully tender and aromatic. Please do not be put off by the decor and plastic chairs -...this is also authentic. 10 minute walk from Haymarket Station We will definitely visit againMore

Hugely disappointed. Hour and a half wait for 2 small containers of runny curry powder tasting slop with a few bits of lamb in one and chicken in the other, nothing else. Nan was a task to eat, tough and rubbery. £34 for 2 runny...curries, a Nan and 4 popadons NOT including rice (we made our own instead of paying £4.25) Yeah a big anticlimax to what we are used to locally. But at least we tried, but 1 definitely to cross off the list!More

All the food was absolutely delicious. Staff were friendly, and even gave our baby an extra dip. Very accommodating even with a buggy and a small loud child!

What started as an exiting St Patrick’s day soon turned into a nightmarish vision of Jack woltz waking up with a horses head on his pillow…the curry kings paid homage to St Patrick’s day by cracking one open early doors. The soft ground at Cheltenham...put to rest any dreams of paying off the mortgage and settling in Gabon. The curry kings do not let such things put a dampener on “life” (please gamble responsibility). An invitation to a fellow curry king who had been grafting and missed the over exuberance during the day paved the way for brighter future. Let’s put all our chips in and back the banker “the Chennai”, the one that could not be beat, the nap of the day ….sadly my curry lovers it was yet again another a curry pie in the face. We don’t mind paying over the odds for quality but were left with a saddle full of dung. In last place - poppadum - soggier than the ground at Cheltenham. The dark horse - the chicken nilgiri was like going face down in the slop. The kerala - sauce was lovely but the lamb was as if red rum had been resurrected from the grave and put on a hot plate. The karikudi sauce was very tasty but the chicken was a non runner. This may feel like a negative post, however coming from the Chennai stables which has had multiple winners over the years the punters expected more for the price. A total mare.More

We really enjoyed the delicious curries, bread, and starters. If you like your Indian food full of flavour you must try here.

Read the reviews and decided to give it a try. We went to the one at 192 Dalry Road and were given a time frame of 35 minutes. I know I am comparing it with my usual takeaway and chefs have their own recipes and...different variations on foods. We arrived and waited, 55 minutes and we were back in the car and on our way home. Slightly disappointed. Vegetable pakora was rock hard, a bit like eating mega thick crisps. There was no sauce to soften it up and not even a lettuce leaf in sight. That’s a never again from both of us. Pilau rice was nice and fragrant Jaffna prawn curry - It was extremely runny, yes a gravy but only a handful of Costco’s king prawns for £12.95. Best bit was it added a bit of sauce to the rock hard pakora. My son had the Hyderabadi lamb masala and pilau rice and he enjoyed it. The chilli coriander Nan bread was nice and spicy. Would I go back….. Definitely no.More

This is a review of the Dalry branch of Chennai’s Marina. This is a small restaurant which offers the most authentic and tastiest Indian food I have found in Edinburgh, with a focus on South Indian, Keralan and Sri Lankan dishes. And the staff are...lovely too. Hugely recommended, give it a try!More

Absolutely authentic South Indian. A hidden jewel found in the midst of Edinburgh. Genuine hospitality, good portion sizes and reasonably priced. If in doubt what to eat just ask the staff. We even had payasum for dessert.

Ordered takeaway for a family gathering from here recently. I had the Kerala lamb curry. The flavours were fresh, spicy and punchy, not overly dominated by an excess of heat. Seems to be a good selection of South Indian and Sri Lankan dishes on offer...with a very broad range of vegetarian dishes. Loved it.More
