3. Mother India Cafe – 30% off Food

After opening in May 2008, Mother India's cafe in Edinburgh offers an Indian twist on tapas, and has rapidly become a firm favourite with both locals and visitors (a couple of visitors on TripAdvisor said they were recommended this place by a whiskey seller!) to Scotland's capital. With over three decades of experience behind the restaurant, Mother India’s Cafe is proud to offer the best of Indian Cuisine.

Located in the heart of the city, it's the perfect spot for anything from a casual catch up to a birthday celebration.
