We came in here after a poor experience at Slumdog, just down the road. The food was brilliant - a meal for two with nan bread , pickles, dips and soft drinks just cost £26. Can't argue with that. Will certainly be going back.

Consistently very good quality food from their takeaway service. Lamb vindaloo full of flavour and properly hot. Kathmandu fish curry a favourite for my wife. Don't understand negative comments from previous reviewers. Thoroughly recommended.

Pre-cooked chicken, microwaved poppadoms(!) and, though we both had supposed 'speciality' curries, we felt we got the same base sauce with a few bits mixed in. Even with all the corner-cutting service was slow - we've never had to wait 10 minutes just for the...More

This little cafe/takeaway is/was a Leith Walk landmark once providing value, tasty, indian food. Sadly, the dishes now too often taste as if they have been made from a jar of basic supermarket curry paste. As much as I wish it wasn't true, the food's...More

Very disappointed, all the food tasted like it had been doused in curry powder. The korma and butter chicken tasted exactly the same, very spicy but not in a nice way it was just bland and hot. Very low quality meat, couldnt tell the difference...More

Unfortunately couldn't place a simple order for takeaway, thought I had ordered only to be called back 3 times to confirm, last call 40mins later so I had to cancel and try else where. Not recommend.

Whilst visiting Edinburgh as a family we decided to get a takeaway one evening. Curry Cafe didn't disappoint one bit, well maybe only the fact that I dont live closer so I can use it more! We got poppadoms and pickle tray and two starters...More

From the outside, the cafe looks like a takeaway place. It primarily is, however, having a sit in meal, is suprising. The food is freshly prepared and delicious. The service is great too. So don't "judge a book by it's cover" and book a table.
