Shish Mahal Restaurant in Musselburgh The Shish Mahal is one of Musselburgh's oldest and most successful family owned restaurants. Not only that, the Shish Mahal was one of the first, if not the first, Fully Licensed Indian Restaurant throughout Edinburgh and certainly the longest serving Fully Licensed Indian Restaurant open today.

As East Lothian’s most visited Indian restaurant, the Shish Mahal has gained a reputation for it's authentic yet creative cuisine. Established by the Khan Family in 1979, much of the Shish Mahal’s achievements are to the credit of Idris Khan, who has been the driving force behind the popularity of the Shish Mahal for over 30 years.

Shish Mahal Restaurant in Musselburgh When the Shish Mahal Indian restaurant first opened its doors in 1979, the public perception of Indian food was that the girls ate Korma and the boys wolfed down a Madras - accompanied by copious quantities of lager. Some brave hearts even took on the dreaded Vindaloo, much to the amusement of waiters all over the country. Throughout the 1980’s and 90’s, however, a revolution occurred.

Through the gentle introduction of more and more authentic dishes from the subcontinent, more discerning palates have developed. Our menu is balanced between the need to maintain genuine all time favourites and urge to explore new styles of cuisine. At the Shish Mahal we are proud to present the best of both worlds. (Shaz 2009).

We are open 7 days a week from 5pm till midnight and offer a home delivery service.
Free delivery in Musselburgh. We also deliver to Wallyford, Joppa, Portobello, Tranent, Longniddry and neighbouring areas where a small delivery charge may be applied.

We can't wait to serve you,

The Shish Mahal Team
