According to TripAdvisor, there are at least 145 Indian restaurants across Edinburgh – and locals rave about the top-rated restaurant, described by diners as a “little gem”.

With an incredible 184 “excellent” rating out of 196 reviews, Prana Indian Grill Edinburgh is apparently the talk of the town.

Based on St John’s Road in Corstorphine, near Edinburgh Zoo, the Prana team describe their restaurant this way: “Here at Prana Edinburgh, our aim is not just to take your breath away with our authentic cuisine , but to create a whole new experience to share with family and friends.”

And, based on customer feedback, it’s fair to say that they achieved their goal.

Prana’s offers a menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including a range of classic curries, street grill dishes and a dedicated menu section titled ‘Indian Reimagined’ – and what they served was described as “a fantastic delight”.

A delicious Indian dish from Prana

One visitor said: “Excellent service, attentive staff who were not intrusive, timely delivery of food from ordering to table setting. But best of all delights for each of us, from starters to main courses.

“Fantastic stars all around, chef, kitchen, wait and cleaning staff, so impressed, thank you all.”

Another diner simply called his meal ‘superb’ and commented: ‘the standard of food is amazing with a mix of ingredients and flavors that I have never experienced in an Indian restaurant, Indian food with a Fantastic touch and knowledgeable staff who really know the food and can recommend.

“This chef and his team are so full of energy and so obviously passionate about food.”

Meanwhile, one customer praised Prana for offering something a little different from the usual Indian restaurant dishes, adding: “Fine dining not bound by the normal constraints surrounding Indian restaurants, eg no poppadoms! unusual compilations and ingredients not obsessed with spice levels.”

And one person echoed the comments of many, simply describing the much-loved dining spot as a ‘little gem’. They said: “We visited this restaurant for the first time, it was an awesome choice. The restaurant is nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly but not in your face.

“The menu offered dishes we hadn’t seen anywhere else and we both had a starter and a main course. All dishes were cooked fresh to order and were very tasty and hot. We really enjoyed our evening here and we highly recommend, we would be very happy to eat here again.”
