“Great customer service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Very friendly staff and loads of fabulous pinoy food! Well worth a visit if you are in edinburgh! Great place to unwind. Cozy place with Filipino music in the background. Located only one mile from the castle. Very convenient.

“Small but packs a punch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Tiny restaurant, overlooked by Arthurs seat, found when recommended by a friend, it is only open evenings and all day at weekends but really worth a visit is you love you asian food. It is filipino restaurant, so dishes are not your normal aisian fare, so be adventurous, the house rice is fantastic, try the crispy Pata, great, dont expect linen table cloth, but the best food often doesnt come in that sort of restaurant, do expect a warm welcome, good service and some great tasting food. We live in Newcastle and visit for the day, already eaten here three times !

“Rather basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

As other reviewers have noted, this is indeed a very friendly and welcoming restaurant offering pretty cheap food in relaxed surroundings. What this can also translate as is a long wait for a mediocre meal - albeit served with a great smile.
We were tempted to try a new cuisine but will probably not be repeating the experience.
Especially not recommended for vegetarians.

“A hidden gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

A hidden gem that I would easily classify as one of the best places in Edinburgh for a casual, friendly and quiet dinner.

Pros: very tasty food, appetizing food presentation, homy ambience, friendly and attentive waiters, one of the best value for money places I know.

Cons: mostly fried food, poor dessert selection, average decoration.

Comparison: As good as Indaba (but cheaper). Better than Kampong Ah Lee, Kismot or Mosque kitchen.

Low prices, nice service. Small but comfy. Went with Filipino friend - authentic Filipino dishes you cannot have anywhere else.
