Just a friendly enough, average kind of place really. Food was fine but not outstanding. Service was excellent and friendly. I'd probably eat there again next time I'm in Leith. If you are going to have your staff in uniform, make sure they iron it...More

Looks great! Lovely ambiance and setting, felt like we were on a boat. Food was mediocre, though tasty none the less. Staff friendly too :-)

We were a party of four for dinner. Extensive menu. Middle range prices. Ordered wine which was opened at the table but not served. Strange. Wait for main course was about an hour but food was excellent when it came. Pleasant service staff.

Went to Britannia Spice on 12th May and were disappointed in the service. Table was booked for 8pm. Arrived at 7.55 and had to wait 15 mins for our order to be taken. We were not having a starter and didn't receive our main courses...More

From its location in a former whisky bond close to the waterfront at Leith, Britannia Spice has been attracting Edinburgh's diners to its multi-ethnic blend of exotic eastern cooking since 2000. Drawing on the traditional cuisine of India, Bangladesh, Thailand and Nepal, the critically acclaimed dishes are served in a nautically-inspired interior with an airy yet intimate ambience.
