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’.
Beautiful food. Service was excellent took us early which was 👌 perfect
Delicious food, good service, lovely atmosphere and great value - what's not too like! Cafe Mother India is one of our favourite destinations.
Fabulous food and service. We enjoyed the tapas style and been able to try a few mains at the same time.
One of the best indian restaurants we've been too in ages. Hard pushed to think of a better one!
Delicious food, great service!
Food and service always excellent at Mother India.....the bill is very reasonable too.
A nice way to try several curries at once. Staff very attentive.
Fantastic food and friendly service
Both of us left Mother India's Cafe saying it was the best Indian food we'd ever had. Everything about it was fantastic, from the ginger chicken and spiced haddock to the sundries (the peshwari was heavenly). The flavours combinations and variety in spices was ridiculously good, and the wine selection complemented the food at every turn. The service was fast, efficient and friendly. They even sand Happy Birthday for my partner! I would recommend Mother India's Cafe to everyone, for every occasion. We plan on visiting Edinburgh again, and we'll be coming back here - for sure.
Food was excellent and the staff were extremely helpful. One particular staff memeber went out of his way to help us with a request. Will definitely be back
Always a fantastic experience The chilli king prawns are to die for! Great service, wonderful food
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. For some of us it was our first visit and will definitely be back. Thankyou Nicola Taylor
Excellent as usual.
Popped in on the off chance without a reservation and delighted we were fitted in to their very busy restaurant. The place was buzzing and the meal was superb. Tapas is the way to go! Service incredible too.
I love Mother India’s Cafe. The food was amazing and very reasonable price!
Lovely food and staff! Single issue we had was that we had to wait for a table for ten minutes after our booking time, but I don't think that's anything the restaurant had much control over, as it was absolutely crammed!
We had a really lovely evening, great value for money, and food was amazing!
Great relaxed experience, with great quality and choice of food.
Top quality food, bottled beer is a bit pricey. Service is excellent.
Fabulous food wine and atmosphere
There was 5 of us for lunch and we were squeezed onto a table meant for 4. This wouldn't be problem if you were busy but it was a quiet Wednesday lunch time. Everything else was great. Thanks.
Consistently very nice food
We visit the restaurant every November while in Edinburgh. Enjoyed our meal again last night. Excellent food as always. Do feel that portion sizes could be a little bigger despite the tapas theme. What about a set meal offer to provide a little more value.
