Yesterday we went for dinner with friends and ordered palak panner as one of our main dish. Curry was only hot from the top and lower layer was deadly cold. Very disappointed although restaurant has a good name in edinburgh. But be careful! There r number other fabulous indian restaurant in edinburgh.

The restaurant was recommended to us by a local while on an Edinburgh bus! All we can say is fantastic food, decor and host. The food was freshly prepared in an authentic style, the ingredients were fresh and the spices used were just right. Would not hesitate to recommend this place to any vegetarian visiting Edinburgh!

- Service can be delayed at peak times

- If you are vegan, make sure they understand your order. They made a mistake once.

I was not a huge fan of Indian food (I can't barely tolerate spicy food) but Kalpna changed my mind. Probably the best vegetarian restaurant in town to me and to many of my veggie friends in Edinburgh. Portions are very generous (never left hungry!) and food is amazing. If you are not vegan, don't leave without trying the Matka Kulfi for dessert.

Of course, it's a bit pricey but for what you are getting, it is more than fair.

Decoration is also a plus. Very attentive staff too. I wonder how this place is not higher up in the rankings.
