This is possibly the best hidden gem that Edinburgh has to offer! You feel like you’re walking into a cosy family home to sit down for a meal with friends - my favourite kind of place! The menu is small and simple but absolutely everything...More

This is my idea of a simple meal that feels like home cooking. It’s not fancy but honest Korean deliciousness. Prices are reasonable and service is good enough for this family run joint. Do get here early, there are always people queuing as it’s a...More

Feel glowing after some warm spicy bulgogi and even warmer friendly staff! The food here is seriously good, fast and worth queuing in the cold for. We loved the kimchi pancake, and are definitely going back to try more.

Kims is a warm and welcoming family restaurant. The service was second to none and the food was delightful, especially the chicken bulgogi and the pork ribs. It is great value for money due to the quality of the food and experience. Definitely going back!

Place to go for a nice Korean meal. The owner's wife is the cook and he swears that only good quality ingredients are used and no MSG. Price is very reasonable. Thoroughly enjoyed the jigae on a cold rainy evening. Just perfect.

Finally managed to find the restaurant open on our third attempt. Extraordinarily busy very small Korean restaurant with queues out the door within half an hour of opening. Brought menus whilst standing outside. BYOB so had brought our own wine with £3 corkage. Chicken soup...More

Tiny restaurant, bit of a wait (no reservations taken here), and EXCELLENT food. Expect to sacrifice personal space for great flavors -- it's worth it!

We had heard of Kim's Mini Meals online and having never tasted Korean cuisine before we were excited to give it a try. The restaurant is only opened for limited hours and you have to queue to get a table, but believe me your efforts...More

Southside & Holyrood
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
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
