Really great little find and right across from the Festival Theatre too. The staff were very attentive and very fast too. The food was so fresh too. Will definitely be back!

Not your typical Indian restuarant. There is an attempt at various fusion cuisines. None seemed very successful. The waitstaff seemed indifferent and the food was mediocre at best.

3 of us ate quite late mid-week following late arrival by train. We all had tapas - portions were good. Service was attentive and atmosphere nice.

It is a lovely place with the warmest ambience and the most authentic Indian food I have found in Edinburgh. Will definitely recommend and go there again.

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking

Kama Sutra literally means aphorisms of love and encompasses all sensory pleasures, thus aromatic foods, seductive music, sensuous aromas and sultry surroundings all come within the Kama sphere.....welcome to the Kama Sutra.
