First up was a massive platter of assorted starters, all of which were brilliant and tasty. The whole plate was incredibly vibrant and fresh. Next up was an assortment of meats with salad which were again cooked beautifully and... More

Recently visited with my family. All of our food was excellent as was the service. After a year plus since our last visit it was even better than we remembered. We're looking forward to visiting again.

What a lovely restaurant this is, tucked away down a side street just a stones throw from the Festival Theatre. We chose the set meal for 2 and were not disappointed. A sharing platter which included a large selection of very tasty starters followed by a mixed grill and then baklava. finished off with Lebanese coffee. They don't serve alcohol... More

Visited the restaurant last weekend with friends and we all really enjoyed our meals, which came in at a very reasonable price. The staff were friendly, the food was good and the BYOB was a bonus in helping keep the bill down. I'm sure we will be back.

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood 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 Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
