Visited here with my husband last week. We had the two Thalis that were vegan - the waiter understood what vegan was and was able to tell us what was vegan and what wasn't. The desserts included in the Thalis were not vegan, so they substituted with mango puree. The food itself was lovely, very tasty and served in individual pots (they were Thalis). All the dishes we sampled were very enjoyable, and were pleasantly spicy, not over-spiced. We were the only people in the restaurant (it was Saturday evening!), so the service was quick! The staff were very pleasant. The quantity of food was relatively small for the price, but that was because there were so many dishes included, as a Thali. The prices were about average for an Indian restaurant, and full dishes would have been cheaper by the gram of food. There were many options for vegans. Would definitely go back, and probably order the Thalis again! Positive Linda

I had an excellent time at Ann purna truley enjoyed the food I'm from London we have many indian restaurants but nothing comes up next to the authenticity of this food. The decor may be dated and require modernisation but this is reflected in their price which is not as high as other restaurants I had tried overpriced pleasing to the eye but not to the palate. However it was the food we went for and it was not a disappointment but a real treat, would definately be back and recommend for everyone to try. Service was excellent friendly owners, make you feel welcome. Perfect end to our stay. Positive Denise Baker

We were really disappointed with our experience here. We had travelled all the way from Aberdeen to have authentic Gujarati food. The staff were being rude, to the extent that we had to leave the restaurant without having our dinner. Negative Sridhar Vaitheswaran

The staff were very helpful and the service excellent. They dealt with an over calculation of the bill with no fuss. The Atmosphere was ok, authentic Gujarati blues and plastic table cloths to match. The Gents loo was well below standard and unclean. The small portion of pakoras was dull uninteresting. The puuri sev was well over priced for such a cheap shop bought ingredients. The main curses were ungenerous and we were disappointed to find frozen mixed veg macedoine as the basis of the vegetable curries. The highly spiced aubergines were in fact bland. The chapattis were fresh, but a bit small. We were disappointed since we travelled from Glasgow to eat Gujerati food – it certainly did live up to my memories of the Gujerati food as found in East Africa. Of course all the best curries are to be found in Glasgow. What a shame. Negative Ross Mackay

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Edinburgh - the staff are really friendly and the food is exquisite. Every meal there has been excellent and if you go try the home made Chai Tea. Positive Gregor Murray

Don't let the atmosphere and decor in this restaurant fool you into thinking it is just another bog standard Indian. The food here is superb, definitely the best vegetarian food I tasted on a recent trip here. It's not expensive and the staff are very friendly. Positive Chris Leighton
