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’.
Fabulous dinner on a busy Saturday night
Defo not like it used to be. Interior needs an update. Portions, even for tapas style, are too small. Maybe capitalising on on Kushi's demise? House wine too expensive. Service good as always.
Another excellent meal. Prompt and efficient service
Really tasty food and very good service. Thanks
Delicious as always
We have been dining at Mother India for a number of years and the food is consistently first class. Excellent service too.
Excellent all round
Good authentic food, love sharing tapas and cheap to boot
Great food fast service highly recommended
We visited with family who had not previously visited at 20.30 on what looked like a busy night. We had 2 waiters, one of whom seemed very impatient and made us feel that he couldn’t wait to get us out the door! We also were not impressed by the addition of service charge to the bill- we always tip and don’t like this practice. I’m sure this didn’t happen on our last visit. Food was good though.
Even though the restaurant was full on a busy Saturday evening the food was tasty and the service very swift and attentive thank you.
Delicious food in a beautiful restaurant.
If you like food from India you will like the food here its loverly our 2nd visit to Edinburgh and our 3rd visit to mothers indian cafe hopefully not our last,See you again soon Maybe next year.
Bookings are for an hour and a half which felt short as it is a place you could spend a lot of time in enjoying the food and atmosphere. However, it is incredibly popular and now I've been I see why! excellent food and really good service. Will definitely be going back!
Another great visit to a perennially busy restaurant. Great food again.
Great food great staff, highly recommend
Mother India is one of the best places to eat in Edinburgh. Could not more highly recommend it.
Food was excellent could not fault any of the dishes that I had will definitely be back on my next visit to edinburgh
Never disappoints - must be the best Indian restaurant in the east. Great food, relaxing surroundings and good service.
Great experience as ever
As usual the food was of a very high standard and great value for money. 3 adults; 2 curry dishes each, rice and nan and the legendary Fish Pakora (still the best in Edinburgh) for under £60 (including drinks). The only small gripe was the Waiter who took our order could have been a little bit more friendly.
Found Mother India's Cafe by chance 3 years ago on a visit and returned during this visit. Service helpful and friendly, great atmosphere and food fresh and delicious. Will definitely be back! Only slight criticism - we like a hot curry but the chicken with ginger and chilli beat us! Could you consider puting a chilli rating on the menu? Until next time - a big thank-you!
First time here. My mum was recommended to try this place by a friend as she loves Indian food. Was lovely to be able to select various dishes as tapas. Food was gorgeous! No faults whatsoever! We will definitely be back!
Delicious food, great service - what more could you want? The flavours were lovely and fresh and the Peshwari Naan was the best I've ever had. Will certainly be back again soon :)
