Our Food

Authentic, flavoursome and healthy 

Desi Indian and Punjabi cuisine offers a wonderful selection of exotic and mouth-watering dishes for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Creating these delectable, yet healthy dishes requires two elements; fresh ingredients and proper preparation. So, we use only Scottish grass-fed lamb, free range poultry and fresh vegetables which we procure daily from local markets and farmers. In Indian cooking the quality of the spices is critical and this is reflected in our cooking. We buy our spices and chillies whole before crushing and grinding them ourselves, so that we can capture more of the flavour.

How we prepare every dish closely follows traditional ways of cooking. For example, our Tandoori dishes are cooked over charcoal in a clay oven called a Tandoor, which is exactly the same way Tandoori food was cooked hundreds of years ago. We also cook each dish progressively in stages, in order to let the spices marinate and properly infuse the ingredients. Just one bite of our food, and you will be able to taste the difference.

To accompany your meal, we have a wide selection of wines, spirits and beers at our bar. Should you like to know which wine would go perfectly with your chosen dish, our attentive wait staff would be happy to help.

  • We use free range chicken & grass-fed Scottish Lamb
  • We only use olive oil in our cooking

  • Ship to plate seafood in 24 hours or less
  • Fresh vegetables daily & spices ground in-house

Our Restaurant

Just as important as the quality of our food is the environment in which we serve it. Our restaurant is in the middle of Edinburgh, on lively Rose Street, so is very accessible wherever you are coming from. Step inside our restaurant and you will be able to relax into comfortable surroundings while you choose what to order. The low lighting, decorative Indian artefacts and resplendent furnishings are all designed to put you at ease. Our friendly and responsive staff will be on hand to guide and help, should you need any assistance in deciding what to order. We pride ourselves on our service here at the Indian Lounge, and if you have any special requirements or needs, we’ll go the extra mile to observe these.
