A busy day helping my daughter to move flats meant that we couldn’t be bothered cooking. Our Edinburgh flat is in Bruntsfield and we always used to get take-away curry from the Himalaya on Bruntsfield Place – but, in the past couple of years, the food quality has really gone down – generic curry sauce made everything taste the same.
So, we decided to try Mezbaan on Brougham St – south Indian food. What a difference – far better food. We shared one of their specialities – a shrimp dosa (pancake) then had three curries – Wajid Ali – chicken with fenugreek, coconut and curry leaves, Achari Lamb – limey and quite hot and Bagaray Baingan – a wonderful dish of aubergines with a peanut and coconut sauce.
Superior food at normal Indian take-away prices. We will definitely be back.
