Had a wonderful meal here. The food was excellent. The staff attentive and professional. Attention to detail. I saw one waitress checking every glass for marks before using for guests. The most wonderful Prosecco I have ever tasted xxxx

“Excellent - something different”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

I visited with my mum at lunchtime with an itison voucher.
We thoroughly enjoyed our food and could not fault it . The dishes were lovely and of great variety . The waitress Rachel was very attentive and friendly and I would not hesitate to return .
The voucher was great value for money and was great idea to get a taster of the food you can get .
The only little gripe I had was it was nearly £4 for 2 soda water and limes which I felt a bit steep but would not stop me coming back as our experience overall was excellent.

“Great food, slow service”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I went here with a few friends after recieving an online voucher for Yeni. The voucher entitled a selection of 12 hot and cold dishes including pitta breads for 2 people for £14.

The food was outstanding and came out in two lots, the cold dishes first, then the hot ones. However it did take a while for the staff to give us our bill, and even longer to bring over the card reader so in the end we put all of our cash together and left.

I would highly reccommend this restaurant for food, but considering this restaurant is situated just off George Street, a very busy and popular area of the town, there should be more staff working!

“Great all round experience”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Had an early evening meal on a Monday night and restaurant was busy. We had 12 different hot and cold mezes, all delicious . The food just seem to keep coming and was definitely prepared to order and served by very attentive staff.
Very enjoyable and different experience - no hesitation in recommending Yeni.

“Great food. Left happy, stuffed, and keen to go back”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Title says it all. Fantastic selection of dishes. The ones we chose were are very tasty ... especially the patates. I expect to return and if someone asked me for an good, unpretentious restaurant in the centre of Edinburgh then I'd recommend Yeni.
