The Radhuni Logo - Indian Restaurant in Edinburgh

Authentic Indian Cuisine Just a Short Drive from Edinburgh

A lovely blog piece that we couldn’t wait to share with you by The Private Traveller. 

Ambiance and Dining Experience

Nestled in Loanhead, The Radhuni might appear modest from the outside, but stepping inside reveals a (tardis-like) spacious, vibrant dining area. The interior boasts jewel-colored decor, a bar area, and an enclosed garden for outdoor dining too. The seating options cater to all preferences, from intimate tables for couples to a large banquette perfect for groups.


Extensive Menu and Delectable Choices

While we were deciding what to order from the extensive menu (and in particular for me, an excellent range of vegetarian dishes for both starters and mains) we were served poppadoms with a selection of chutneys – mango, mixed pickle, and an onion salad; and I picked one of their premium gin selection, the Edinburgh Gin rhubarb and ginger, with tonic. The poppodoms were precisely crisp and dry, with that perfect ‘snap’ as you break into them!

The A La Carte menu is split up into both vegetarian and non-vegetarian starters; then for mains a whole array of Tandoori and Balti dishes, Radhuni classics and specialities, Vegetarian, Biryani, and a small selection of European options too. Add to this a choice of side and rice dishes, breads, and raita. A big selection but all foods are cooked fresh to order, and of course your server can help shape your best meal, wherever you sit on the spice scale. The A La Carte menu is also complemented by separate Takeaway, Lunch, and Sunday Banquet menus.

Highlights from Our Meal:

  • Starters: I opted for the Dhal Puri (stuffed flatbread with spiced lentils), while ‘Mrs’ TPT chose the Haggis Pakora (spiced Lamb Haggis in traditional batter).

  • Mains: I picked the Sabzi Sambar (mixed vegetables with lentils) for me and the Malayan Chicken (almonds, coconut, pineapple, fruit juices, and cream) for him.

  • Sides: We shared a pilau rice and a plain naan between us.

The food was delicious throughout, presented well and service was attentive and friendly. Thankfully we were afforded a small break after enjoying our starters, and when we were ready for the mains the table was set up with a heated burner to keep our curries warmed throughout eating. Portions were large, and costs fair.
