Couldn't rate the mosque kitchen any higher for the consistency of the taste of the food served 365 days of the year. Its a rustic place which delivers for the price . Best biriyani in whole of Scotland!!

We loved Mosque kitchen - its a no frills place, but found it to be clean and well presented. The portions are very generous and the food was delicious. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and will come back.

This is a really special place. No airs and graces, just fairly priced good food. i had a lamb curry with aubergines and dahl, and the food was really authentic, and a sizeable portion. A great place for a no frills good lunch.

Food was lacking taste and kebabs were sweet. Not recommended if you like your authentic Pakistani - Indian food. Pot noodles have more taste then this crap.

Accept this for what it is and you will enjoy. Portions are large, the food is very tasty and a decent range. It’s a stand at the counter approach to the service and take it back to a table. Plates and cutlery are disposable. A...More

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
