Set right in the middle of the commercial area of Edinburgh, Yeni is a meze bar that delivers everything you expect for such a place. Buzzy atmosphere, loads of meze options, good range of wines and reasonably priced. We went for an evening out and...More

Great meze, lots of variety with plenty of veggie and meat options. Everything we ordered was delicious and the pre-theatre meal is great value. Staff were very friendly too. Not sure how I didn't realise Yeni was here before but definitely will be back!

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
This is a question for the restaurant or anyone that can answer me. I have just returned from Crete and had the most amazing samali cake. I manage to get recipe online for it and it asks for mastic. It is very expensive to buy online and as I only need a very small amount cannot justify it. Is there an alternative that I can use or somewhere local that I can buy a small amount of this ingredient Thanks Αυτή είναι μια ερώτηση για το εστιατόριο ή κάποιος που μπορεί να μου απαντήσει. Έχω μόλις επιστρέψει από την Κρήτη και είχε το πιο εκπληκτικό κέικ σάμαλι. Θα καταφέρει να πάρει τη συνταγή σε απευθείας σύνδεση για αυτό και ζητά τη μαστίχα. Είναι πολύ ακριβά για να αγοράσει απευθείας σύνδεση και όπως έχω ανάγκη μόνο ένα πολύ μικρό ποσό δεν μπορεί να δικαιολογήσει. Είναι μια εναλλακτική λύση που μπορώ να χρησιμοποιήσω ή κάπου τοπικές ότι μπορώ να αγοράσω ένα μικρό ποσό του συστατικού αυτού υπάρχει Aftí eínai mia erótisi gia to estiatório í kápoios pou boreí na mou apantísei.
