Vinyasa has sophistication, style and service. What’s more, it is ideally placed just off Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile. It will undoubtedly attract tourists, students – Edinburgh University is nearby – locals, and even, possibly, members and staff of the Scottish Parliament and the City of Edinburgh Council. The detail in the tastly decor, and the care and attention taken in the composition of the bar, plus the varied menu were major pluses. Furthermore, the waiting staff were at pains to ensure that we received the correct information about the varied selection of Bengali and Indian dishes on the extensive menu. Dietary considerations. We asked for advice and it was provided. Our waiter knew exactly what was in each dish. And, when it arrived, it was piping hot and the vegetables were crunchy, particularly my green peppers. Even the plates were hot, that’s attention to detail which is missing in so many restaurants.
