Great food & very friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Also good for children. My daughter (6) had chicken skewers with satay sauce & duck & pancakes. In the heart of Edinburgh's quarter mile only 10 mins walk from Princes Street

Been here a few times before. As expected the food was still really nice and served promptly. However, the service tonight was rather sub par. Didn't ask if we wanted more drinks, didn't bring cutlery when they took the used ones away, no water, hard...More

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
