The southside has long been home to some Edinburgh Indian favourites, like Kalpna, the Mosque Kitchen, Kebab Mahal and Suruchi. In recent times, south Indian places like Tanjore and The Cholas have added to the number. Another addition to this list is 10 to 10 in Delhi, which is ploughing a similar furrow to Kebab Mahal, in its pursuit of simply prepared, tasty, but inexpensive dishes.
The interior of 10 to 10 is really welcoming, with bright fabrics bedecking the walls and giving the place an exotic bazaar feel. The charming staff members make you feel right at home, too.
Their menu offers a good range of dishes, all very attractively priced. They offer a daily chef’s special, which is what attracted my attention. Today, it was an intriguing sounding seafood benachin biryani.
Having placed my order, I sat at a comfortable window seat. My dish was soon with me, and it looked like a straightforward plate of hearty goodness.
It proved to be very tasty, with a good range of seafood items, and really nicely prepared, flavour-packed rice. It wasn’t a “knock-your-socks-off” delight, but it was a smartly produced, joyously filling plate of grub, which was precisely what I expected and required.
So overall, I really enjoyed my visit to 10 to 10 in Delhi. As a stop-off for a needed feed, this place is an absolute winner. They have pitched their offering really smartly, with a welcoming atmosphere giving the place a homely feel. They’ll do great business during the Festival, no doubt, and so they should. Pop in for a visit, soon.
