It is located at city centre close to Royal Mile and many other attractions. For someone who haven't tried Indian food staff was very friendly and helpful with good recommendations. I would highly recommend their food as authentic Indian food you could find in Edinburgh.

We had the chicken tikki masala & the dal makhani, plus the garlic coriander naan. Mouth-watering. Just the right amount of very fresh spices & herbs. Some of the best Indian food we've eaten, and gracious service too.

Truly authentic and closest to the Indian delicacy along with Extremely customer friendly staff. If it has to be Indian in Edinburgh it HAS TO BE KAMASUTRA.

The food was amazing. I taste 3 different meals, and they were all super delicious. Also, the restaurant looks nice and the owner is welcoming. If I go back to Edimbourg, I will definitely eat there again!

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking

Kama Sutra literally means aphorisms of love and encompasses all sensory pleasures, thus aromatic foods, seductive music, sensuous aromas and sultry surroundings all come within the Kama sphere.....welcome to the Kama Sutra.
