Description: Set in the heart of Edinburgh is Hanam's Kurdish and Middle Eastern Restaurant and if you think that's a mouthful, wait until you see what on offer! Voted one of Britain's Top 5 Middle Eastern Restaurants by the Telegraph, owner Ahmed ensures the personal touch, by being there seven days a week to offer advice and banter. The menu offers starters such as falafel and baba ghanoush, main courses that include Kurdish pizzas, vegetarian casseroles and halal meat dishes, such as Kurdish-style lamb biryani. There are also a selection of shish kebabs and desserts. Three courses from this banquet-like menu will cost an average of just £20 per person. And, if you're so inclined, you can even smoke a traditional hookah after your meal.

We always visit Hanans while in Edinburgh and cannot get the same quality and flavours in London. Although they do not serve alcohol you are very welcome to bring your own.

Excellent Middle Eastern place in the shadow of the Castle in Edinburgh's Old Town. Wide range of choice from familiar dishes to more specialist Kurdish ones. EVerything we've eaten in her has tasted fresh and tasty. Very reasonable prices and friendly staff add up to a really enjoyable experience. Well worth a visit! BYOB.

Great experience, great location, very cultural. Lamb and hummus starter was very good. Service was just okay. All in all worth going to.

Didn't book in advance but not too busy so we were able to get a table straight away. The food was very tasty, large portions and very good value for money. Would certainly return next time we visit the area.
