Description: Mithas is an innovative and exquisite Indian dining experience that reflects true Indian flavours using traditional methods in a contemporary setting. The chefs were handpicked to deliver what was cited by known food critics as 'bold, exciting and unimaginable within Indian cooking'. Our contemporary take is rooted in age-old traditions, therefore delivering taste sensations that take you beyond your expectations but with a reminder of the origins. Mithas's preparatory methods include the three core Indian cooking styles; Tandoor (clay ovens with temperatures of up to 390ºC), Sigri (cooking over a coal flame) and Tawa (searing and griddling on hot plate). The food is immediately served as it is prepared retaining its freshness, fragrant and delectable flavours. We sincerely hope you enjoy the Mithas dining experience!

“Slow service but good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

I'm marking this average because the service on the night we visited was spectacularly slow and this spoilt our experience a little. However as you will see that this is far from an average Indian restaurant and the ingredients, preparation, taste are all to a high standard. The chargrilled salmon and duck were great as was the desert. We paid £50 per head including nice wine-might give it another try and hope they are a bit faster

“An Indian Curry but not as you know it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

Visited this restaurant on the recommendation of my son
Went for the tasting menu after some deliberation and did not regret the decision .
The meal was an adventure of tastes and surprises.
Don't be put off by the price. Great value for what you get.

“Fabulous Indian restaurant in Leith”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

I gather this is quite a new Indian restaurant. Tucked away in Leith, with all the other excellent Edinburgh restaurants, Mithas is a revelation in Indian food. The food here is not your standard oil based fare, it's actually cooked more with spices. The best tip is to order one of the set menus where you can taste a little of everything. The prices are slightly higher than similar restaurants but you are paying for the quality. Highly recommend.

“Fine Dining Indian Style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

This was our 1st visit to Mithas and hopefully the 1st of many. We had the Tasting menu as well as the Tasting wine selection. The service was second to none, the staff were knowledgable and explained what everything was and the timing between each course was perfect. Each dish was cooked to perfection and the monkfish was so fresh and tasty. We were seated near the entrance in what felt like a corridor but we got a good view of the kitchen activity, perhaps the rest of the restaurant would be more private. Would certainly recommend it to anyone who appreciates excellent food in lovely surroundings with excellent staff.

“Wonderful !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

This was our 4th or 5th visit since Mithas opened its doors and it was fabulous, as always.

Have had the tasting menu each time (Vegetarian) and each dish was perfection.

The service is also outstanding.

My only complaint is that the tasting menu has been pretty much the same each time we have visited. This makes the experience just a little unexciting. For this reason we are unlikely to return unless they make some changes to it. I really hope they do !
