SquareMeal Review of Mother India’s Café - Edinburgh

Mother India’s story started in Glasgow, but this Edinburgh offshoot close to the University’s Old College has been a roaring success since the brand came to the city back in 2008. As the name suggests, it’s a casual, simply laid-out space specialising in tapas-sized dishes, with prices rarely breaking the £5 barrier. Nibble your way through mince-filled samosas, patina lamb with mint, chicken saag, vegetable pakoras, chilli king prawns, chilli fishcakes and dosas stuffed with potatoes and spinach, or try one of the day’s specials (haddock with spiced greens on Thursday, for example). There are around 30 different items to choose from, all backed by rice, breads, sundries and desserts. The food is fresh and hot, and the atmosphere builds to fever pitch on busy evenings – simple but brilliant.

Went for lunch on 1st September 2012 with a friend, absolutely loved it! A great menu choice, each dish was delicious and nice sized tapas portions too. Friendly waiter too which was nice. Highly recommend if you have time to sit and lunch and catch up with friends.

To me this place is something special. It's a modest cafe layout with charming Polish waitresses under Indian control. The food is great. We had Butter Chicken, Saag Lamb, Chilli Prawns and a veg dish and each dish had its own character rather unlike my experience of similarly priced Indians where everything tastes much the same. It arrived almost instantly and we were looked after well throughout the meal. It was around £30 for 2 all in for a meal which was as satisfying and interesting as a meal at the Cinnamon Club. Lucky Edinburghers – or Glaswegians if the Glasgow places are up to the same standard.
