... and now just very average. The chips used to be amazing, now they are all dried out and tasteless. I ordered a pizza from here recently and the cheese was cheap and stringy, you could tell that they had skimped. Very, very, average.

Simply the best fish supper in Edinburgh. Well worth the wait for the delivery. Potato fritters to die for . Have tried the pasta dishes and burgers and never found fault with anything. Great service, friendly driver. Sorted, will go back again and again.

This was a buzzing, fabulous Italian and now......well, where's the passion gone? Our Pizza was absolutely awful. No flavour, no tomato, no cheese. It resembled the cardboard box they get delivered in. Honestly... if I had closed my eyes I could have been eating water. No taste at all. Even with masses of garlic, there was nothing. Staff falling over... More

2 hours for one pasta dish to be delivered. Paid for chips also but they were nowhere to be seen. Tried to cancel it as I was so tired and past hungry but I was told I would have to contact just eat to get a refund. I know the pasta takes 5 mins to cook so how it took... More

A night in with friends, we all have kids so for a hassle free evening we decided to order food for delivery. We were lied to from start to finish, phoned an order totalling almost £40, specifically asked about delivery times and told 45-60 minutes. Phoned after an hour and a quarter and told "it's leaving the shop now". A... More

Very nice surroundings, friendly and attentive staff. The food was fresh, as you should expect, but not always the case when visiting other restaurants. Generous portions and value for money. I wasn't hungary afterwards anyway, well fed, yum.

This is not a restaurant and you will not be served wine or beer! However, it is a very good chip shop and deliveries will take some time because it is very popular. Big selection of food and huge portions. My wife and I gave up on a full fish supper each a long time ago - one supper will... More

We had garlic/chicken pizza, and a mixed pepper pizza. Where was the flavor? It tasted like bread with bland sauce on it. It needed lots of basil, oregano, pepper, salt, and a bit more cheese.

Well we have eaten her many many times. But the last time was in Feb, 2012 when we were home visiting our families. The Service and Food and atmospher was great. The place was not busy but that was due to the bad weather. The food we all had was terrific and the service was even better. I highly recommend... More

Popped in for lunch, had a bruschetta and a pizza. Great food, efficient service. Little bit expensive for what you get. There's a Pizza Express over the road which seems better value for money, but at least at this place you don't feel like you're funding a faceless corporation
