The Indian Cavalry Club

22 Coates Crescent, EDINBURGH, EH3 7AF

1 rosettes

Just a few minutes from the city's hub, this Indian restaurant has been going strong since it opened its doors in 1986. It's a comfortable, good-looking sort of place, with a contemporary decor of creamy tones and a wooden floor, with well-appointed tables and professional, well-drilled staff. The kitchen deploys sound techniques and quality ingredients to produce the authentic flavours of the sub-continent, taking great care with spicing and seasoning. Start with a lamb cr?pe stuffed with tender meat in a sauce that bursts with flavour, or perhaps seafood soup, before tandoori chicken in a rich, piquant sauce with spicy yogurt. Try chargrilled fillet of sea bass and a sauce of your choice: one of lime and coconut, say, lightly sour and hot, from Goa. Vegetarian options, among them paneer palak (spinach and cottage cheese), get the thumbs up, as do naan and light and fluffy pilau rice, while desserts might run to gulab jamon in fruit syrup.
