The mythic brilliance of the Southside's Mosque Kitchen is a very poorly kept secret amongst Edinburgh's student population. While its primary purpose is to cater for its congregation, everyone's welcome in the Mosque's low-key, al fresco, canteen-style set-up. Expect exceptionally tasty, piping hot home-cooked curries, pakoras, dahl, and fresh-baked naans so aromatic that the Kitchen's one pitfall (outside dining in all weathers) is easily overlooked. Frequently hailed (heh, geddit) as Edinburgh's best curry house, the Mosque Kitchen is - with a hearty meal available for under a fiver - easily also its cheapest.
If you're in need of a bit of proof that Mosque's the place you should head, look no further than our Food and Drink Survey. Every year, we hold a survey which helps you, our lovely readers, democratically construct a tasty list of all the best cafes, restaurants, pubs and food shops in your area. You thought that The Original Mosque Kitchen was one of the best places to head when in a rush, along with the likes of Wannaburger, Hula and er, Greggs. Moving on...
