I visited Beirut again recently after a 2.5 year break from my first visit with friends, and we were cosily seated (some would say crammed) on a long table for what was an exceptionally large booking. I was tempted to choose the meze again to...More

Came across this place by chance whilst we were dropping our son off at the Uni. First off we noticed a number of Lebanese customers eating there so presumed it must be good and authentic cuisine. Another good sign was that it was very busy...More

I visited Beirut with my children and had a delightful experience. The falafel and the Baba Ghanouj were the best I have had for a long time. The staff were very helpful and had a very nice sense of humour. Will definitely come back for...More

A great variety of tasty and healthy mezze to start, a selection of kebabs for the main course and a small but very sweet baklava to finish. I loved it all, and it was fantastic value at £20 a head, particularly as there is only...More

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
