Mumbai Street Food Edinburgh is one of the most charming Indian restaurants in the city. On Assembly Street in Leith, Mumbai Street Food is a cosy space where the menu is different to the norm meaning you can expect plenty of dishes and delicacies you likely haven’t tried before. That’s not to say you won’t find certain Scottish curry house classics you already know and love, but that Mumbai Street Food Edinburgh is a restaurant where you need to spend a solid few minutes being curious about every part of the menu. Mumbai Street Food is immensely popular so advanced reservations are essential, particularly at weekends.
What makes Mumbai Street Food Edinburgh so charming isn’t just the warm welcome you’ll get from the entire staff, it’s the way the menu is named to present the varied food on offer. Start by having a look down Speciality Street before moving to Thali Terrace, Grill Grove, Curry Close, Kathi Roll Court or Biryani Boulevard – these are all your main course options – before choosing your rice and breads from Side Road and then, if there’s room left, your final course from Dessert Drive.
If you’re making the trip out to Leith then some Mumbai Street Food specials you have to try include the smoked Aubergine bharta perhaps with some crispy okra or the chef’s own dal tarka. If, however, you’ve got rather a large appetite to satisfy then try a thali with either veggies, chicken, lamb or prawns. The South Indian platters for one go down an absolute treat and mean you get to try a little bit of everything. With so much more on offer – make sure you try a kathi roll, India's answer to wraps – we can’t recommend Mumbai Street Food Edinburgh enough. Get involved.
