I took a friend who had never had Malaysian food, excited to introduce him to new flavors. It was such a disappointment. The food was mostly inedible glop. The menus have photos of dishes in them, and when we pointed to one that looked particularly...More

Delicious food and very reasonable prices, informal and very friendly staff. I have been to this restaurant at least 4 times and it has been great every time. The big bowl soups are huge. Highly recommended.

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is

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