Nice restaurant where to taste the lebanese cuisine. I really appreciated the cheese rolls and the lamb (Lahem Meshwi).

We were in Edinburgh to see the evening performance of Miss Saigon at the Festival Theatre which is about 2 mins. away. Neither of us had any experience of Lebonese cuisine. The head waiter (owner?) could not have been more helpful explaining the various dishes...More

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

for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
