Found this well established vegetarian Indian restaurant away from the city centre whilst in Edinburgh for the festival. Despite being very busy they found us a table straight way. We live very close to Leicester so appreciate good quality Indian food - we were not disappointed. The menu was fairly short - always a good thing. Flavours were fresh and exciting. Very friendly - loved it

We took 2 carnivores here and despite moaning about the lack of meat, they seemed pleasantly surprised by the food. We are not vegetarians ourselves, but like the fact that the food at Kalpna is extremely tasty. It is filling without being bloating in the way Indian food can be at times. We hadn't booked but managed to get the last table - I would recommend booking as lots of people were being turned away.

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!
