Namaste, and a hearty welcome to Gautam's. We are a family restaurant with over 30 years in the food industry with both of our chefs starting their careers from small restaurants in Kathmandu, Nepal. There, they began their education into food, learning from every day street vendors to top chefs at 5-star hotels before making their migration to India to gain further experience. Their time in Delhi was a milestone on their journey to Dubai where they were exposed to a more diverse customer base serving professionals from all over the world as well as tourists from the west. Here the two chefs separated and made their journey to Ireland and Scotland separately and ultimately met here in Edinburgh. That is their story, but now let us take you on a journey of food right here at Gautam's as we explore and seek out new flavours and re-discover old ones.

We were visiting Edinburgh for the weekend and decided to try the Gautam after reading the excellent reviews online.
The food was superb and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. It was definitely the highlight of the weekend for us

The food was good. Spice has been tuned down for non-indians (i prefer original). Paneer wasn't pre marinated/spiced, so was a bit bland.

Delicious Indian food, large selection and good portion sizes. I especially enjoyed the Momos. The service was super friendly, professional and quick. The place is not that large and was packed on our visit, so it was a bit loud and cramped.

A bit out of the way for most tourists, but a very tasty meal, creative cooking, good value, worth the extra cab/uber ride from Royal Mile sights.

Excellent, tasteful dishes, very polite service. Really enjoyed the food which was moderately spicy (for my taste it could have been more spicy). In the cons the location of the spot (not downcenter).

Amazing food and good service. We started with the Chef special app platter and everything on it was amazing all bursting with great flavors. My husband has the lamb Rogan Josh which he said was excellent. The highlight was the meal I had which was a slow cooked lamb shank( dont remember the name). This was far the best slow cooked lamb shank I had ever had. It feel off the bone and flavors were perfect. Naan was great. The only area I would advise about. If you are looking for a good wine or a variety of wines to compliment you will not find them. The only serve Indian wines( we had the Shiraz) which for us was too spicy to go with our food. List is probably ok for locals although out country visitors( like us) would like to see maybe syrah from Rhone or Cab Franc or reisling from France, NZ or Australia. Also fruity Chardonnay would pair nice.

Ein super Restaurant. Mein Lamm und das Chicken Tikka waren unglaublich. Ebenso das Naan und der überaus freundliche Betreiber. Nehmt den Weg auf euch, um göttlich zu essen!

A real find to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Excellent attention, both by phone when booking, and on arrival. Delicious vegetarian options and a general sense of being extremely well treated. Dishes tastier than when we lived and worked in Nepal.
