Mother India is  highly  recommended.

Anything  near Princes Street will be expensive. Pimlico is hardly in the same  league, tourist-wise.
If you don't like your democracy, vote against it.

For stuff like curry & beer, central Edinburgh prices are sadly on a par with central London.   The good news is that as Edinburgh is so small that it really only takes about 5 minutes to find somewhere that isnt a tourist trap.   Mother India (and a pint in the Captains Bar) being a good example.   

In comparison eating out, price of a pint and other associated stuff are a veritable bargain in Glasgow - which aside from being bigger also benefits from having more of a culture of "eating out not as a big/expensive set piece" so there are more mid range options.

Kalpna is great. I make a beeline for the lunch buffet whenever I'm in Edinburgh.

Having just returned from two weeks in Scotland, I didn't find eating out cheap anywhere.

But why would it be?
The only thing cheap in the further reaches of Scotland is housing. Everything else is more expensive, simply due to transport costs. So why should we tourists expect to be fed cheaply? Do our foreign English Pounds suddenly become more valuable?
