Starters and main courses were fantastic.
Second visit here, and the food was just as tasty as we remembered! We did not have desserts as on our previous visit we were slightly disappointed with them, however I'd still highly recommend dining here. Service was timely and at a nice level of attentiveness without being overbearing.

We have become instant fans of this very understated but brilliant place to eat. We went to the opera afterwards but we both feel that our delicious meal at Navadhanya was the real highlight of the evening - no exaggeration. Go; you will not be disappointed.

Very pleasant restaurant, attentive staff, fantastic food but subtle. This is not your average Indian. The menu does not contain your typical Indian dishes although there are a couple you will recognise. This food is more authentic and generally lighter. Great value and would highly recommend.

The best Indian restaurant in Scotland we have tried. Fantastic flavours and decent sized portions. Menu is short but has an option for everyone’s taste. Only downside is that we dined on a Saturday night and it didn’t have the buzz and ambience one would expect on a Saturday night in a restaurant with great food.

Christmas Eve dinner was fantastic! The restaurant went out of their way to make the evening special for all guests with holiday music, crackers for everyone, and a special menu in addition to their regular menu. Very professional and attentive staff. The food was as good as it could have been. Thank you!

We enjoyed a lovely relaxing meal at Navadhanya last night. The food was delicious and we particularly enjoyed our mains Lamb Kolhapuri and Lamb Malabar followed by the chefs selection of puddings which we shared. We were very full after our mai a bit couldn’t resist trying the puddings out. We will definitely be visiting again soon.

Enjoyed the tasting menu, but did feel it was a bit overpriced and s bit too fussy for us.

I would love to see a bit more of a traditional curry dining experience available.

Booking is essential as it's not a very big place. However, it's well worth it, the food, although a very limited menu, is fantastic. I have already recommended the place to two close friends who visit Edinburgh as a place to go eat. You won't be disappointed.

Very efficient and friendly service, excellent quality of food and menu is a little bit more interesting than the usual Indian restaurant. Atmosphere is a little too sedate in my opinion....also if describing vegetables as "exotic" would expect non common ones not usual British boring ones. But these are minor points in an otherwise slick and tasty venue I've been to many times.

It was two years since we had been at Navadhanya (during our last visit to Edinburgh) and our first visit to the new location.
We had tried to book for 8 pm but could only book at either 6 pm (too early) or for 9:15 pm in the Open Table system. We got there about 9 pm and were told that was good because the kitchen closed at 9.30! The restaurant was fairly empty so I didn’t understand that I couldn’t have a table at 8 pm. We were then seated in a corner behind the door - maybe so that they could start cleaning when every else had gone.

As we were the last to arrive, the food came very quickly - mains virtually straight after we finished starter. When we had finished our mains, we still had half a bottle of wine left, which is unusual for us!

The waiters did start cleaning while we were still there but not near us. However it was obvious they wanted to close.

The food was still as good as we remembered, but the atmosphere wasn’t as nice as before - mainly for the reasons above.

I still don’t understand why I couldn’t have a table at 8 pm?? If they have had bad experience with bookings and no shows at peak hours, then they should take a credit card with the booking.

Sitting in an empty restaurant at 9.30 during the festival is not such fun and also highly unusual- especially with the Navadhanya reviews on Tripadvisor and Open Table.

Excellent India food, not very spicy hot but just the right level of flavors to blend with the taste of meats and vegetables - highly recommended. Ensure to make a reservation as they are usually busy on all days.
