Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2012 edition.

The parallel lines of Easter Road and Leith Walk are arguably the best in Edinburgh for takeaway food. One of the latest entries to this ultra-competitive market, Cardamom, is already building a strong local following. A converted shop front, the bright, warmly coloured interior is softened by draped muslin and a comfy couch to relax in while you wait. The considerable list of 'Cardamom Specialities' showcase the owner's North Indian roots, but cater to almost every taste. Haryali massala is ideal for the korma-lover craving something more fragrant while a hop over the border into Nepal gives inspiration for the spicy and delicious Kathmandu chicken.
