We ordered from Dine for £15 menu... More

Always had good things to say about this place, loved the food and vast drinks selection. I don't know if it was because we chose the 'Dine for £15' than pick from the regular menu but the food was poor . I always loved the salt&pepper squid with Vietanamese salad but this time it was bland, no taste but squid... More

A wee mid week lunch, and decided to take on the Tigerlily set lunch menu. Great selection of classic dishes with a nice modern, refreshing twist. I asked for a cocktail that wasn't on the menu and the mixologist was more than happy to make this classic cocktail up. The service was polite and discreet and the price more than... More

My girlfriend had been before and recommended we try this place for dinner. The service was immediately very friendly and professional. The waitress was unsure of the whisky choice but recommended I speak to the barman. The barman went through a few recommendations and asked if I wished to taste any of them. Everybody was polite, courteous and friendly. I... More

We visited Tigerlily Sunday night, the service was second to none, our waiter was attentive without being intrusive, we were escorted to a private booth where we enjoyed some of the best food i've eaten, every course was well presented and full of flavor! if you are looking for a good meal in good surroundings then Tigerlily is the place!

Pleased with the menu choice for the £15 2 course dinner option. We enjoyed the complimentary olives and bread before the Moroccan chicken salad which was very tasty. I have the risotto patties and my husband had the Thai curry which was a generous serve. A very funky environment to enjoy our last dinner in Edinburgh.

We decided to go and try a few of the Cocktails we heard Tigerlily were known for. My wife and I were not disappointed by the speed and efficiency of the bar staff who supplied the most amazing cocktails. As I was driving I asked for non alcoholic ones and I was blown away by the taste of them as... More

Had a lovely alfresco meal in this lovely restaurant. High quality of food, wine and staff who couldn't be more helpful. Look forward to returning in the autumn.

Good ambience and good music. The cocktails are good but depending on the bartender. They should create more consistency. But overall i recommend.

Good food and lovely atmosphere. The service was excellent. We stayed until midnight and were not made to feel that we should vacate our table.
