About Mother India's Cafe, Edinburgh
Our ‘twist on tapas’ has rapidly become a firm 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, the Café is an affordable and tasty option.
Eating out with your partner, family or friends is a pleasant occasion and the Menu at the Café 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.
Please join us soon and try out this ‘way of eating’.
Excellent food and service. Good prices. One of the best places for indian food in Edinburgh.
Staff were nice, food was good. Felt nice and safe as everyone well spaced out. It is a real shame for the owners they cannot sell alcohol, madness.
High quality food, lovely flavours as ever. Nice staff and doing a great job within the Covid restrictions
Good food and good service
The waitress was lovely but the two other waiters seemed abrupt and had no time to be pleasant to us as guests.
Excellent food and service , hard to have an atmosphere under the current conditions but maybe candies on the table and Possibly background music if it’s allowed. But it did not detract from the food and lovely attentive service. Thank you.
Excellent service and food. 10/10 would recommend.
amazing service in the current circumstances.
Normally the place is busy, but on this occasion it was a bit empty so only 3 stars for atmosphere. However, the food was up to its usual high standard and the service was impeccable. This is Indian food of quality and subtlety.
Absolutely cannot fault Mother India. The food is always absolutely delicious and the restaurant has been adapted to make you feel completely safe and distant from other diners. Best peshwari naan you will every try!
Favourite restaurant. Happy to return time and time again
It was so nice to get out for a good meal, felt relatively safe in the restaurant given the circumstances. The service was exceptional. Will definitely be back!
Under the current Covid restrictions Excellent, service and food Thanks again
Excellent food, wonderful service, have to say we rather overstayed our welcome (not that you complained), but thanks!
Really lovely food, we went for a birthday meal. Staff were polite and helpful, plenty of vegetarian and gluten free options. Food arrived quickly and was delicious. Very happy.
We had a lovely time at Mother India Cafe. The food was very tasty and filling. The service was really great (better than in other restaurants I've been to lately). Our order for drinks and food was taken quickly (and when we asked for more time to think, they came back in a timely manner too). Two staff members checked on us during our meal asking if we were happy with the food. Overall a great experience and we're looking forward to going back!
Always a delight and the food never fails to satisfy
Fabulous food. Our first visit was Tuesday and we enjoyed it so much we booked again! Will definitely recommend to friends and hope to see you again if we visit Edinburgh again. Thank you
Food was average but not good value for money.
I always enjoy coming to eat at your restaurant. The food and the service is consistently outstanding and affordable. I have never had a bad meal at Mother India and will be returning many more times.
First class .was there about 2 years ago and I said that the next time we are in Edinburgh we must go back. Went back and still first class food service and atmosphere keep up the good work.will definitely be back thanks
As a regular customer, I love the food. Think you might do a bit more re Covid protections, perhaps more spoons etc to avoid sharing cutlery? Atmosphere is not what is was but all due to Covid and not much you can do about that.
Hot food - very tasty and well presented
Lovely food and great service - no complaints!
So good we went back again 3 nights later!
