Very good Indian restaurant

Very good Indian restaurant and takeaway, always consistent, everything I’ve tried has been fresh and decent quality, I have experienced better for less money, which leads me to say it feels slightly on the expensive side but it’s probably average and I’d say it’s one of the best I’ve tried in 50 mile radius, I have been to most excluding Edinburgh city

We love the depth of flavour

We love the depth of flavour in the dishes, you just don't seem to get it anywhere else, and the chilli paneer is a great veggie option.

Never disappointed

I have been using Shish Mahal for around 20 years home delivery and always on time when your order in advance for your selected time and food is always fresh. I would worry if my takeaway turned up within 20mins as you no it wouldn’t be made fresh so we like to pick our delivery time and never disappointed

Catherine Baillie, Prestonpans at Apr 27, 2018

The food is as ever amazing

The food is as ever amazing, service no so great......delivery times inconsistent, when ordering online, have ordered for a 7 30 delivery only to turn up an hour late, and if you dare to call to query.....not happy chaps. However the food is exceptional so you can't have everything

christopher hill, tranent at Apr 22, 2018


Really lovely food. Delivery is always great, never too long to wait.

Mike Brown, Wallyford at Apr 13, 2018

Always great service

love this place. Always great service wether you eat in or take away, and the food is always amazing. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

leanne lough, Musselburgh at Sep 6, 2017

rarely go anywhere else

As Shish Mahal is our local Indian restaurant/takeaway, we rarely go anywhere else for Indian food and if we have we always compare it to the Shish Mahal and ask ourselves why did we not just go there?!? Have even had our last two Christmas Day meals there with a lovely atmosphere and will no doubt be back again this year!

Janice Whyte, Musselburgh at Sep 6, 2017

Consistently high standard

Consistently high standard of food in very pleasant and friendly surroundings, always enjoy going to the Shish Mahal, fantastic.

Iain Ferguson, Musselburgh at Sep 6, 2017

food is absolutely fantastic

I have lived in Wallyford for 16 years and have used the Shush Mal on many occasions, also on their buffet night, which was excellent. The staff are always friendly and the food is absolutely fantastic, I would recommend it every time , can't wait till MA next RUBY MURRY.

Wendy Mercer, Wallyford, East lothisn at Sep 6, 2017

James Mcallister, Musselburgh at Sep 5, 2017

Great food every time

Great food every time you can rely on the quality of the products and the portion sizes are good too. Delivery times could be improved but only ever around 15-20 mins over, nonetheless if that was sorted it would be perfect! Thank you

Justine Menzies, Musselburgh at Sep 5, 2017

can't get enough

The food is always so flavoursome, I tend to go for a mixture of vegetable curry sides and each one very different in taste. The Aubregine one is highly moreish, I just can't get enough of it. The paratha is the best by none to eat with my curries, cutlery is not required!

Suzanne Mckenna, Edinburgh at Sep 5, 2017

Love the Food

Love the Food the Buffet need to have bigger choice cant wait to go back soon ian

Ian Lumsden, East lothian at Sep 5, 2017
