I’d heard rumours that Lazeez, the Indian takeaway on Dalry Road, was a bit of an unsung hero, so after an evening of cocktails with the lovely Edinburgh Foody gang, I popped there for a quick late night snack.

The place is a simple counter set-up. There are some tables and chairs, but they look to be more for awaiting your order rather than dining in. I quickly settled upon trying their saag aloo, so took a seat and waited for it to be freshly prepared.

The friendly folks were soon about preparing things, then in no time bidding me a cheerful good evening with freshly boxed item in hand.

My abode is not far away so I began tucking in when safely ensconced at home.

The dish is rarely an eye-catcher, but it looked plentiful and had an enticing aroma. It proved to be one of the best examples I’ve been served in the city. It packed quite a kick from both red and green chilli, and the spinach and potatoes were both soft and delicious. It was an absolute winner.

So overall, I thought Lazeez was very good indeed. I’d be happy to recommend a visit and look forward to trying more dishes from their menu.
