    Family Meal

    We had a lovely family meal on Wednesday night. The food was excellent, the staff could not do enough for us and although the restaurant was quiet it did not take away from the ambience. Would definitely go back.

Award-winning Indian restaurant in Leith

Named after the Royal Yacht Britannia which is berthed nearby, Britannia Spice is located in a former whisky warehouse on Commercial Street. The restaurant itself is in ship-shape condition; immaculately clean with rope ladders and ships’ helms carefully chosen to accentuate the maritime theme. Child-friendly and wheelchair accessible, Britannia Spice serves multi-ethnic cuisine with dishes from India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Thailand. An AA Rosette for culinary excellence is the latest in a long line of awards.

Fine dining with exotic eastern flavours


The restaurant prides itself on fresh and healthy cooking and offers a wide selection of vegetarian and gluten-free food. Seasonal native ingredients are used to prepare dishes to the highest professional standard and customer favourites can be requested and the skilled chefs will do their best to comply.

Items on the menu ranges from chicken pakora, tom yum soup and prawn cocktail to curries, biryanis and sirloin steak. Some dishes on particular that have received praise include the Himalayan momo – steamed Nepalese dumplings – the amer murgh – chicken cooked with mango pulp, cream and selected spices – and the tandoori lamb chop which is marinated in ginger and mustard before being charcoal roasted.
