Every time we visit Edinburgh we have to eat at the Kebab Mahal. The good is fantastic and we love the cafe style. The standard chicken curry is great..

Simply put, the food in this restaurant, pound for pound is the best you are likely to experience anywhere - it is honestly preposterously good and as for value for money...... simply ludicrous!!!! £ for £ it is spellbinding value - the flavour of the food was honestly fantastic and my only regret is that I lived too far away from this restaurant for so many years!!! You could give the kebabs 5 or 20 stars. the result would be the same!!!

This is more a cafe than a restaurant. It is an Edinburgh institution. An eclectic mix of customers is always a good sign. People do not go here just because other people like themselves do. You are as likely to bump into a celebrity here, as in Edinburghs most expensive restaurants. You are as likely to bump into someone down on their luck here, as in the salvation army cafe. How many curry houses have people willing to stand and wait on a table when there are numerous other establishments nearby with empty tables. Brilliant value. Great tasting food and enough to satisfy anyone. Can be very busy, very often. No alcohol allowed and shuts for prayers during the day.

This is a locals place didn't win best carry out of the year for nothing! Currys are superb best in Edinburgh. Tourists, not for the faint hearted if you want candlelight and flowers and run if the mill imitation curry,this is too authentic for you. I've been going here for over 20 years never had a curry anywhere in the world that matches it. As for the staff they are superb considering they have to put up with obnoxious tourists!!
