Established in 1983 our family restaurant has been operating for over 38 YEARS now and our head chef and his team only use fresh and quality ingredients and head chef grinds his own spices to give each dish a unique taste. Come along and enjoy real Indian Punjabi food and see why Indian Lounge is very popular with locals, tourists and is highly recommended by food critics.
We only use Scottish grass-fed lamb, free range poultry, fresh vegetables and ship to plate seafood in 48 hours or less, all of our ingredients are 100% natural. Plus we only cook with OLIVE OIL. Most of our menu is GLUTEN FREE and we have a good selection of vegan options also. Fusion between authentic and modern cuisine. We are well known in the city of Edinburgh.
Only a few minutes walk from Princes Street. Award Winning Restaurant.

    The food was simply awesome and tremendous. If you are looking for authentic Indian food with extremely large portion but in good quality, this is the place you must go. The restaurant is a family-owned business, and the owner treats everyone as if one of his friend. Can’t wait to visit the restaurant again!

    I had booked the Indian Lounge originally for a party of 4 at 7pm. However, I was able to change this to a party of 6 for 7.30 pm which I was able to do online without any difficulty and at quite short notice. I have visited Edinburgh, and Rose Street in particular on many occasions but had never been to the Indian Lounge. It is a hidden gem amongst many restaurants in the city. We were shown straight to our table on arrival where the service was excellent throughout. Our server was able to suggest starters and suitable main dishes for everyone in our party which was greatly appreciated. The food itself was delicious and some of the best Indian food we have eaten. We were able to take what was left of our meals to enjoy the next day. We will definitely return and look forward to trying other dishes on the menu.

    We were very impressed, it was delicious! We would be back many times if we visited Edinburgh on a regular basis. Not touristy!

    Food was wonderful as usual. Service was good, but felt a bit rushed ( we were only there for an hour). No one waiting to be seated so not sure why the rush. We love this restaurant and always make a point to eat here when we are in Edinburgh!

    We recently tried to dine at the Indian Lounge, and unfortunately, our experience left much to be desired. Upon arriving at the restaurant with my party of two, we were promptly told by one of the staff that there's lots of people waiting. However, despite having made a reservation well in advance, it seemed that the restaurant had a policy of seating larger parties ahead of smaller ones. This resulted in our smaller group being left waiting for an unreasonably long time, while we watched larger groups get seated ahead of us. The lack of consideration for reservations was particularly frustrating. It's disheartening to see a restaurant not prioritize the time and effort guests put into planning their dining experience. When we inquired about our reservation, the staff seemed indifferent and offered little explanation, contributing to a sense of neglect. We ended up going somewhere else.
