I’ve written about Mezbaan before when we had a take-away meal from there but I’d never actually eaten in the restaurant. I went there with an old friend that I hadn’t seen for many years after we’d had a couple of beers in Bennets Bar.
The food was as good as I had remembered – we had Wajid Ali – a chicken curry “cooked with Kashmiri deghi mirch, poppy seeds, fenugreek, aromatic spices and garnished with desiccated coconut and curry leaves” and Lamb Methi Gosht – Lamb with fenugreek, ginger, garlic and tomato. Rice and naan + (perhaps unwisely) more beer.
Very friendly and efficient service. Highly recommended. Definitely one of the best (if not the best) Indian restaurants in Edinburgh. A little more expensive perhaps but worth the money. About £36 for two of us.
