Spice Lounge Kitchen
Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2014/15 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2014) edition.

Despite the size and layout of an anonymous chain pub/restaurant, Spice Lounge Kitchen in Corstorphine is stylishly designed with a modern and sophisticated interior, and makes good use of its vast proportions. Customers can enjoy drinks with small tapas-style dishes, or even Indian-inspired pizzas and burgers in the comfortable bar area, or venture into the elegant (and huge) dining room for something more substantial. Described as ‘the king of kebabs’ a starter of galouti kebab features little patties of minced lamb sat on individual puris and topped with half a red grape. A main course of chicken shakuti Goa, a dish from Southern India, comes in a delicately spiced sauce, with the heat of red chillies cooled by creamy coconut milk. Panjabi tikka masala has a lovely rich sauce but is sadly rather mild, despite the maximum three-chilli rating on the menu. Garlic naan is light and crispy, and for those who can’t decide, a variety bread basket is available with your choice of Indian breads.
