Good Dosas and side dishes . Value for money though little expensive. Need more push amongst staff, they all look casual and not the ones ask for more business.

Great South Indian food. There was only one waitress working the dining room, and she seemed overwhelmed, but service was reasonable. Dosas were especially impressive.

Well, it's certainly the best dosa I have had here. And the tastiest mango lassis too. Very friendly and speedy service, just right for when you have a concert at the Queens Hall to get to.

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
