Excellent once again. Prawn dupiaza this time. Irene opted for one of her standards. But I don’t think I have had the dupiaza here before. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you gentlemen. We’ll be back in a couple of weeks after Nicola’s mini lockdown in Lothian....Keep up the good work.More

Great food, great service. Had starters and mains for an evening meal and couldn’t fault either (And I lived in Bradford for 5 years), extra points for the cracking “yellow yoghurt sauce”

Me & my friend visited PATAKA during our first visit in Edinburgh & the staff were exceptionally wonderful & friendly from the get go! Our experience was complimented by their amazing Indian curry’s. If I lived in Edinburgh I would for sure be visiting there...often! Thank you PATAKA for your exquisite food & wonderful hospitality. Kind regards, Lennon B.More

My partner and I visited in September and received excellent customer service and good food. Alongside this, we felt extremely safe in the restaurant with the covid precautions they had in place. Overall a very enjoyable experience and will definitely be back in the future....Overall, the food did not blow us away although it was a good experience, but the customer service was 10/10 from the staff.More

Actually, I think you’d be better to phone them. Esme’s description is accurate but I think it’d be tricky for a wheelchair to negotiate the turn. 0131 668 1167. They are very helpful and honest. If they say it’ll be ok... More
