Curry in Scotland's capital may not be exactly sizzling hot but good-quality, mostly North Indian and Bangladeshi establishments continue to prosper. Some of the city's oldest restaurants continue to enjoy deservedly loyal fans; there are also plenty of low-key wee gems cooking good, simple food at excellent value in surprising environments. And things are starting to heat up in spots: high-profile newcomers are offering more modern twists, from bacon naan rolls to spice encrusted pan-fried scallops and gulab jamun meringue.
