Winner of the Best Restaurant in Scotland award, Britannia Spice offers an enticing menu of Indian, Bangladeshi, Nepali and Thai cuisine.

Interior designer Arshad Alam has transformed the once derelict Whiskey Bond into the striking nautical space that Britannia Spice restaurant is. Sails are dotted around acting as privacy screens, while a ship’s wheel doesn’t look out of place, surrounded by rope ladders and plenty of wood.

The expansive Britannia Spice menu features tasty and traditional recipes, with a popular Nepalese favourite of spicy trout with fried mushrooms, tomatoes, green chillies, herbs and a mild sauce. An alternative at Britannia Spice in Edinburgh is the tender tandoor-roasted chicken, marinated in a special blend of herbs and served in a robust and spicy ginger sauce.

Britannia Spice in Leith is around a 10-minute drive from Brunstane Rail Sation and is a 4-minute walk from Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre. The Edinburgh restaurant regularly hosts popular charity events.

    I haven't been to Britannia Spice for quite a while and i really felt that the whole experience had gone down hill. The restaurant was only about 1/4 full when we arrived, the service was very slow (didn't really notice that as we were catching up with friends whom we hadn't seen in 18 years), we had to ask for plates to eat our starters on and then the main course took ages to arrive. The food was good but everything was presented on a mound of lettuce with a slice of cucumber and tomato. They could do with modernising their presentation. The waiters were all nice but one in particular not very proactive. We also got to experience a good Leithers barny by some drunk dinners leaving the restaurant. All very Trainspotting!

    It is easy to see why Britannia Spice has won so many awards. The food was excellent and the service was second to none. We shared a few dishes and found them all to be really tasty and of a very good size – big enough to share but not so big that you can't walk home afterwards! On that note, a lot of the diners at Britannia Spice had their cars with them – parked in the car park out back. While this is a local restaurant, it seemed to attract people from far and wide - in fact, one of my friends regularly comes down from Dundee to eat here. So, to sum it up, I would advise anyone to visit this curry house – the food was great and the bill wasn't to expensive .
