410 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3JD

126–130 Easter Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5RJ

Rivage may seem an understated presence from the outside, but there’s nothing low-key about the restaurant’s menu or the kitchen’s execution of it. Husband and wife team Ryad Meeajane and Catherine Thomson look after the kitchen and front of house…

Zaika Restaurant

1 Kensington High Street, London, W8 5NP

6–8 Clerk Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9HX

When you head to Tanjore, and it’s heartily recommended you do, there are two reasons to bring an appetite. First, this is where to sample the finest Southern Indian cuisine in Edinburgh. Second, you’ll be tempted to order everything on the enticing…

Kama Sutra

331 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3HW

Don’t be put off by the entrance – hinting at a restaurant that puts a cheesy theme first – for inside is a colourful, spacious yet pleasantly intimate space. Menus may proclaim 'the food of love', yet the twisted metal table dividers and heavy wooden…

The Original Mosque Kitchen and Café

Edinburgh Central Mosque, 50 Potterrow, Edinburgh, EH8 9BT

Debates over its actual ‘Originality’ still rage, with the (unconnected) Mosque Kitchen over the road claiming copyright, but the Original Mosque Kitchen remains a popular spot, still resolutely lo-fi, ladling curries from school dinner drums on to…

Banana Leaf

76B Old Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G3 8RE

You’ve got to trust the food will speak over and above any impressions a style-free, humble interior may give. And trust you do, as seating and feeding hungry customers is a priority from a diner that began as and still is a takeaway. Having grown in…

Indian Platform

1051 Great Western Road, Glasgow, G12 0XP

Mother India's Café

3–5 Infirmary Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1LT

Something of a Glasgow stalwart, the Edinburgh branch of Mother India’s Cafe opened in 2008 and has replicated the popularity of its western sibling. Serving up Indian food in tapas-sized portions ensures the restaurant maintains a buzzing social feel…


14a Nicolson Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9DH

Ideally placed to capitalise on the pre-theatre crowd spilling over the road from the Festival Theatre, Suruchi has carved a niche for itself that has quite cheerily survived the recent change of ownership. The light and airy upstairs room is brightly…

Bon Appétit

1150 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8TE

After a brief hiatus last year to get a slick refurb and rebrand, Bon Appétit is back, and it is smarter, stronger and healthier. From the reassuringly open kitchen, cheery staff serve up the same quality curries from a fairly compact Indian selection…

Mother India's Café

1355 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 7RU

It takes confidence to add fixed specials that are creatively different every day. But it works…. to try a MIC fish biryani then you have to get down there on a Friday and one Friday, that’s exactly what you might do. With the ability to turn tables…

Rishi's Indian Aroma

61 Bath Street, Glasgow, G2 2DG

Enticing smells waft from city centre newcomer Rishi’s Indian Aroma. Present in Aberdeen for the past four years, the Glasgow branch launched in January 2013 following a hunt for the right premises – and an Edinburgh restaurant is in the pipeline for…

The Spice Pavilion

3a1 Dundas Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6QG

10 Antigua Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3NH

With acres of street-level window, stylish split-level interior and panoply of coloured ceiling lights, the latest incarnation of Edinburgh stalwart Khushi’s is far from your run-of-the-mill Indian restaurant. The menu has a modern feel to it and a…

1590 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G14 9DB

After two decades of serving loyal Scotstoun locals, Neelim must be doing something right. Couples and families flock here, whether it be for a sit-down dinner or some takeaway dishes to enjoy at home, and it can fill up even on week nights. The menu…

Punjabi Junction

122–124 Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH6 5DT

A community café whose set-up was funded by a government grant sounds like a very worthy affair, but such a description, while accurate, doesn't do justice to this fantastic venture serving up home-cooked style Sikh cuisine at the foot of Leith Walk. A…

Red Fort

10 Drummond Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9TU

New Saffrani

11 South College Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AA

This small restaurant tucked away off Nicolson Street has retained its all-round quality through a recent change in ownership, with an extensive list of curries from a variety of Indian regions. To start, chicken chat is a substantial dish of spicy…

Yadgar Kebab House

148 Calder Street, Glasgow, G42 7QP

In the heart of Glasgow’s most ethnically diverse neighbourhood, Yadgar has been serving Govanhill’s large Asian population for more than 20 years. The dining space is a harshly lit, functional affair and the menu appears fairly basic, and although it…
