We have visited Mr. Madan Gosain in his Haldi Restaurant in Edinburgh on 24th of June 2023. A friend recommended to go there for good Indian food. He was right! What a great experience! Though the manager did not know us we were greeted very friendly and respectful. We decided on the 5 course Taste of Haldi menue and accompanied wine selection with each course. We were not disapponted at all. Though they offer a range of reasonable priced dishes, the price for the menue seems justified to us. Every course tasted superb and was arranged as beautifull as seen on the various photos published. The various wines matched very good with the food. We noticed that the wines were a little to warm in general - white and red also. We told Mr. Gosain and he agreed immediately. So the future visitors will surely enjoy wines in perfect termerature with their meal. A coffee machine for after diner hot drinks was not installed yet, but will be available shortly. This restaurant is surely worth a little detour.

This is an amazing hidden gem in Edinburgh! Madan was so friendly and welcoming, as were the other staff members! The chefs done some outstanding work with the 5-course tasting menu, it was nothing short of exceptional! It's no surprise that people were drawn in off the street after reading the menu at Haldi. They have so much to offer on their menu and by the end of our meal, the restaurant was packed but this didn't stop the exceptional and attentive service we received. If you are looking for somewhere unique, this little hidden gem is the perfect spot for you! It's away from the Edinburgh City Centre hustle and bustle as well which is nice and relaxing! There are plenty of bus routes to get there, parking outside or if you are feeling like indulging in their wine flights you could splurge and get a taxi! Thank you so much for such a great evening!

This is serious business: these people are serious about the food they cook, about the way they present it and about service. We had the tasting menu: each course consisted of wonderful flavours, which were combined in an interesting way. The food they offer has nothing to do with an 'Indian curry, we're talking a totally different level. Go and treat yourself!

We had a takeaway from here shortly after it opened, then once it opened for restaurant dining, we turned up on chance mid week for dinner and got a table. I had tried the railway chicken on the takeaway menu (which I enjoyed) but opted for fish curry when we dined in. I loved the dirty samosa chat from the takeaway menu and was pleased to see it was on the dine in menu too as a starter. We also ordered bhel as a starter which was delicious. Their chickpea side dish is so fabulous. Perfect. I really hope that stays on both dine in/takeaway menu. What I really liked about the dine-in menu at Haldi is that the main course includes either rice or naan plus a side dish. Our 'norm' at Indian restaurants is to over order and so hubby ordered his main with rice, mine with naan, and we shared, so there was no waste. We had exactly what we wanted. Great flavours. Lovely service. As I mentioned, this restaurant is very new and still seems to be in a soft opening stage. There was no wine list available. I think they need a bigger choice of wine - plus a written list so people can see prices before they order. Overall, we really hope this restaurant does well. It is aiming higher than your standard Indian takeaway/restaurant. It is what the Southside needs. Good quality. We will definitely be back for in dining and takeaways.

From the moment we entered the restaurant the hospitality was fabulous, attentive without being intrusive and when it came to talking through any of our questions reference some of the dishes, it was extremely informative. A comfortable atmosphere, the décor, music, lighting and furnishings allowed us to enjoy the superb cuisine, which for non-Indian food eaters was an exceptional experience. We were recommended the restaurant by a colleague, and I’m thrilled they did as we don’t normally eat this particular style of cuisine, the flavours and presentation of the dishes were just brilliant. The family and I would return in a heart beat when we’re next in town, thank you to all the team at Haldi for a fabulous dining experience.

We strolled by this place after checking into our BNB. The menu was not quite what I was used to in terms of “Indian food”, it was clean, sparse, pan Asian, pan Indian. I checked online for reservations, and we could not find a time slot that worked for us, but I did go in the restaurant and ask if they could work two of us in for dinner, and they accommodated us. I am glad they did ! After talking for some time with Madan, we learned his vision aka high-quality Indian bistro-style food served with personalised service at an affordable price. We talked about something my mother would enjoy, because she was not an Indian food fan, and were able to pick selections from the menu and then add a few tasting courses , over all extremely enjoyable. They were accommodating, professional and caring. He has achieved his Vision. The prices are below what I expected after seeing the presentation and tasting like 50/50 curry and meat mixture. He has been open 5 months, I am positive it will be a success. If you’re eating in a group and you love, traditional flavors, or if there’s a mixture in the group and some of you would like pan Asian or Indian, even something more traditional as they can customize This is a great place to take everybody.

Everything our table ate was excellent, and our party had high expectations. Staff was happy to answer all questions about allergens and extremely friendly, introducing each dish brought out. It was easily our best meal during vacation. I overate after ordering the lamb shank; it was too good. My husband immensely enjoyed his 5 course dinner from the tasting menu. Don't forget to indulge in dessert! Location is within the B&B area of Edinburgh so good news if you're in the area, otherwise a short bus or taxi ride from city center.

I never expected that on my first trip to Scotland my favorite meal would be at an Indian restaurant. But after almost two weeks of traditional seafood, beef and lamb dishes I fell in love with Haldi Wonderful food, beautifully presented with warmly attentive service. My only regret was they were not open the 2nd night of our stay in Edinburgh so I did not get to return.

This small, intimate restaurant is tucked away in a neighborhood not far from the center of town. The Indian food is top notch with a balance of flavors that I have rarely seen in other Asian restaurants. Our tasting menu was beautifully presented and our waiter explained each dish. It was spot on. This is a great place for people who not only love quality Indian cuisine and people who have never tasted it. You will be rewarded with a wonderful meal. I cannot end this review without mentioning the staff who went above and beyond.

I dined here recently with my daughter, we both had the vegetarian five course tasting menu. It was absolutely delicious! The flavours were incredible, the food beautifully presented, the staff so friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about the flavours/food. I will most definitely return to try the a la cart menu. I can seriously recommend Haldi for dinner. There is an excellent choice for all.

Really enjoyed our meal last night. Some flavours not often seen made this a treat. The home made chutney served with the poppadoms as well as the regular mango included an almost smokey tomato and a mixed berry that had a fruity taste with some heat to it, without the bitterness associated with lime. Traditional biriyani cooked in a bread sealed pot made up our mains and did not disappoint. The chick peas side and black lentil dal made for a fine main course. We finished of with sumptuous gulub jamen. A great meal.

The food is faultless, absolutely delicious across the whole meal for all four of us. They need to improve the pace of service though - long waits between courses took the edge off the evening. Also, don’t clear until everyone (including children) have finished eating. Nearly 5/5, but fix the service.

The owner and staff were very welcoming and added to a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. The is familiar but served and presented in a unique way with lots of new flavour combinations. My wife and I opted for the taster menu, including the wine pairing. It was just fabulous! Thank you for a wonderful evening.

My fiancé likes to take me to new places for a birthday treat and he knocked it out of the park with this restaurant. We have passed by this Southside restaurant on many an occasion but didn’t know it was there. On arrival I was impressed with the modern, clean decor which reflects the restaurant’s name Haldi (saffron in Hindi). The manager and other staff we encountered were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, attentive without being in your face. We decided to go for their set menu with paired wines and every course (and wine) was a delight. The presentation of our food was simple and elegant and the flavours were subtle (no tongue-meltingly hot spiciness here). Every course highlighted local produce but with a twist and gorgeous Indian spices. I can’t recommend this place highly enough. Bear in mind it’s a twenty plus minute walk from the Old Town (but a short bus ride).

We dined here a few times during our stay in Edinburgh, and every meal was absolutely delightful. The atmosphere is very calm and welcoming. Every meal was delicious, but we especially loved the lamb shank, garlic naan, malai kofta, dal, and kulfi. On our last evening, we chose the vegetarian tasting menu, and highly recommend it. The quality of everything in this meal was far beyond the average Indian restaurant. It was a truly gourmet experience. The owner is so warm and friendly, and very helpful with suggestions and explanations.
