Our son had been here previously with friends and recommended it. When we visited, he suggested going. I'm so glad he did. The sushi was excellent. Highly recommended.

Don't be put off by the dingy alley. You won't be sorry when you step into this tiny restaurant as the Japanese cuisine is out of this world.

This is our favourite place to come when visiting Edinburgh. Friendly staff, amazing ramen, delicious food. It's one of the best ramens I've had since Japan. Try the Takoyaki (pictured)!

We were 10 persons for a diner - so the restaurant was almost half-full with a familial atmosphere. The food is very tasty and fresh. The people who work there are sooo friendly. I will go there everytime I visit Edinburgh.

I ate at Maki Ramen before so I was looking for something equal or better, the place looked great from the outside, looking inside and resembling more authenticity and traditional. I made the mistake of coming here, I ordered the Hokkaido miso based ramen, the...More

This small Japanese restaurant is a real hidden gem. Tucked away on a corner in an alleyway, you might be put off at first glance. Don't let that fool you! The staff is lovely and polite. They offer many choices of sushi, ramen, starters, desserts...More

Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
