Ronaq New Waverley
Stylish Indian restaurant serving fresh, tasty dishes accompanied by one of the best views in Edinburgh.
Across the road from Waverley train station, just behind the Royal Mile and with a panoramic view over the train tracks to the Balmoral Hotel and Calton Hill, this is a modern Indian restaurant in a fantastic location. The city centre branch of its popular Comely Bank sister restaurant, their set price business lunch is popular with local office and council workers and guests at the nearby budget hotels, who can pop in for curry and chapati while taking in the big views out the shiny glass windows. The service is swift and friendly, which makes up for the slightly corporate feel to the room which is decked out with chandeliers and has loud muzak on a loop. Vegans and vegetarians are well catered for, and meat eaters can choose from the likes of prawn tikka, Scottish lamb in bhindi gohst and chilli garlic chicken. Some of the pricing is a bit steep compared to other Indians in the city, and a few sauces don’t stand out as much as they should, but the desserts make a nice end note, with sticky gulab jamun covered in syrup to finish things off.
