    Welcome to the Dhaba Diner.

    Welcome to the Dhaba Diner.


    Traditionally in India, Dhaba were truck stops, serving Home-style cooking at affordable prices for people in a hurry. More recently, the dhaba concept has broadened beyond Punjabi truckers without losing the principles of good, quick, fresh food.

    Sounds like a wonderful ambition for Dhaba Diner,Opened in  April 2012 in the former home of Khushis Diner, Dhaba  Diner brings Indian style tapas food distinguished by its sophisticated use of spices and herbs and the influence of the long standing and widespread practice of freshness in Indian society.

    We also serve quick Dhaba lunch . If you don't have time to eat in, Dhaba does takeaway aswell.

     Tapas’ has rapidly become a  favourite with both locals and visitors to Scotland’s Capital.

    Whether you’re popping out for lunch or heading off for a night out at one of Edinburgh’s many attractions, Dhaba team is there to prepare fresh and quick meals for you to suit your taste.

    Eating out with your friends, family is a pleasant occasion and the Menu at the Dhaba is aimed at encouraging just that, with tapas the whole meal is a shared experience and the range of freshly prepared and tasty dishes on offer encourages people to try both favourites and something different.
