Excellent service. We were a party of six and had requested the small function room and it was ideal. We could relax at eat and chat at our leisure and listen to the music. Service was excellent could not fault them

Went for a family meal. All six food options were lovely. Nans and sides were tasty and well sized.

Some dishes were spicer than expected but still enjoyable.

Excellent food and friendly service. My favourite place for a very tasty Indian meal. Choice of tapas and main menu. Good explanation at each dish with recommended side dishes. Good value for money. BYOB.
Very friendly staff

Visiting on a Thursday evening meant that we could enjoy Tapas. Great selection and gave us a chance to taste different foods without wasting a complete meal.

Food good and varied- some of the best curries we have had in Edinburgh - a couple were surprisingly hot!

Service friendly ; but ambience on a Sunday night was a bit quiet - Plan to go back on a different day.

Our family of four had a lovely meal and relaxing evening at Abida. The food was delicious and BYOB was a bonus when eating out as a family. I would, and have, recommended to other people living nearby. We will be back.

Accommodating management when increasing size of group booking.
Great selection of fine Indian and Thai food. Reasonably priced food and drinks.
Staff service extremely good throughout the evening.
Well worth making an effort to visit this establishment.

Ate here on a Tuesday night. There was only one other person dining so very quiet. Ordered form the Tapas style menu for the 4 of us. All of the curries that we tried were lovely. Well cooked lamb and chicken with a good range of spiciness. Would recommend the food. The chairs were rather uncomfortable though!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal in Abida, it was just such a shame that the restaurant seemed so empty. When we arrived at 7 there were a few other diners but I don't think anybody arrived after us and we were the only people left well before the end of our meal. I don't really understand why because we all loved it.
