I went looking for this restaurant on the Friday night but couldn't find it anywhere in Hunter Square. Also, the phone number given on the TripAdvisor site is unobtainable now.

Been here a few times, always snared by the chaps handing out fantastic food on the street. Good value, always friendly, charming service and the food has always been really nice. Great vegetarian choice and always really nicely cooked. The wine is more than drinkable...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
