We ate lunch here as part of an Itison voucher deal. The food was lovely, really good quality and tasty. The service was friendly and efficient. The restaurant itself is also a pleasant and calm environment to eat in. I would definitely come back.

We have been here 4 times now, and the food and service just gets better. I love the new style need dishes. We had a voucher, but would pay full price for the delicious food. We loved it so much we stayed for desert and coffee. You must go here at least once! :)

My partner and I have been going to this restaurant on a regular basis for the last 15 months. In that time it's chnaged from it's previous title, Nargile, a traditional Turkish/Eastern European restaurant,to its current incarnation, a meze restaurant.

What has made this place one of our favourites, is the consistantly tasty food, and the service which is relaxed and friendly.

The restaurant serves a variety of meze dishes which are similar to Spannish tapas. Eastern European favourites such as humous, and falafel, accompany an assortment of other delicious dishes on the menu.

We have stuck to some favourites recently, which have only improved since we first went. The humous is essential. It's plentiful, and comes topped with harissa, black olive, and a drizzle of olive oil. Another favourite is a dish of aubergines raosted with onion, tomato, and spices, served cold. Delicious!

The lamb kebab is also worthy of special mention. Tender, chunks of fat-free lamb, served with rice, and a harissa paste. Absolutley devine.

Look out for special deals. We managed to find one that involved twelve portions of some of their most popular mezes, all for a mere £14. It was truly fabulous.

If you are looking for something slightly different for a romantic meal, or for a great way to enjoy and share dishes with a group of friends, then a short walk from Princes Street, is this gem of an eatery.

Go, just go. You'll love it.
