We tried four other Indian restaurants in Edinburgh- Indian Lounge outshone them all- excellent service, exceptional food, good prices. I wish we lived in Edinburgh- we'd be back every week.

4th visit to this wonderful eatery ...........and once again the food exceeded our expectations. As always we were warmly greeted by cheery staff and served food that was prepared using the freshest of ingredients, tomatoes that tasted fresh from the vine and the chillies were so crunchy and juicy. If you like Indian food a visit here is a must 😀 Waiting time for food can be average but I'd personally wait longer for this quality of food!

Fantastic meal with everything cooked fresh. I have a dairy allergy and given most curries are cooked with ghee really struggle to find indian food I can eat. The waiter explained they could make me any dish I wanted from scratch using oil, including naan bread which I haven't had in years. Amazing. Everything was delicious and service was great. Would definitely recommend!!

Extra charges are added to several items on the business lunch 6.95 menu, but still good value. The food was however very good, and well presented. Table service was also very good.

Really nice and tasty food in plentiful portions (too much for us but had a largish lunch). Nicely attentive and would consider coming again on our next visit to Edinburgh.

Mild food was a bit spicy, waiters didn't tell kid to put Nintendo on mute, quite busy, food was okay but not the best Indian ever eaten (e.g. much coriander in almost everything we ate)

Meal was great and the service was top class and unfortunately the pinot grigio white wine that they sold was very poor. That was our only complaint.

We were firstly ignored then subjected to foul language from the owner as they were very busy.Food excellent, customer service training required by owner himself.
