I can’t resist a good Indian meal, the starters alone are enough to tempt me. The Radhuni is a family-friendly Bangladeshi restaurant, a recent winner at the Scottish Curry Awards, they are located in the Loanhead area on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

What can be better than afternoon tea aboard a vintage red double decker bus on a sunny Saturday afternoon? The afternoon tea is available everyday apart from Mondays and there are two time slots – 12pm and 3pm.
