First time I've been here in years. Great food, menu was plentiful and service was great - not rushed and a lot of good banter. Prices maybe a little high, but for location that's understandable. Would definitely go back.

Nice surroundings and nice food but it is ruined by small portions. The rice is served in very small dishes and is not value for money. It is a shame as it is a good restaurant.

I first went to this restaurant over 20 years ago and it was great then and great now. It is £8.95 for a 3 course business lunch and the portions are pretty decent for a lunch menu. They also offer BYOB with no corkage fee....More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
