The food lacked in presentation - and for some dishes taste - humus and hallumi were very nice but the king prawn dish looked thrown together rice was sticky and overcooked- and salad was limp .
The few pieces of bread wasn't home cooked and some was burnt .
What left a sour taste was when they tried to overcharge by putting on an extra coffee to the bill.
So if you do go here and it's very handy for the EICC - check your bill .

My dish came out without the bulghar wheat or sauces as described in the menu. The staff did oblige by bringing out the bulghar after someone noted theirs was missing too.

Starters were nice, but my dish was just needing a bit more flavour. (Sea bass)

We were a group of 9 friends, including 2 children, visiting Edinburgh for the weekend. The restaurant is well positioned near the Castle and opposite the International Conference Centre. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was great, and not noisy. Food was tasty, served in good sized portions and reasonably priced. Perfect for our evening meal. They also now have a wine list.

What a wonderful experience! Our server went above and beyond by actually running to a local wine store to pick up a couple bottles of wine for us. (The place was still waiting for its liquor license and had a BYOB in place but we didn't know that when we made the reservation.). The food was fabulous, plentiful and very reasonably priced. I recommend this new spot for anyone in the mood for some delicious middle eastern cuisine.

Service was non existent. We were on a tight schedule & had to leave just as main course was served (>1hr after we arrived for business lunch)
Food was wonderful though

It was our first experience of this type of cuisine, and we loved it. The flavours were fantastic. At the time we went there wasn't any alcohol being served. Some customers had taken their own. Didn't spoil our experience at all though.

Nicely decorated casual restaurant, delicious food, efficient but non intrusive service and very impressed when the chef came to speak to us at the end of the evening.

Beware this maybe the only unlicensed restaurant in Edingurgh its what they term a BYOB restaurant. If you love meat go here staff nice and friendly.

This place is relatively new and the food is sensational. 6 people in our group and every course was wonderful. Unfortunately the service was very slow and one of our mains did not come until others in our group had finished thiers. It was NYE and quite busy. The manager was exceptional, she handled it all really well but is obviously dealing with new staff. I think the service will improve over time and the food is so good its worth the wait. Reasonably priced meals and as a BYO with no corkage its great value. I recommend you give it a go.

Lovely waitress and waiter who were struggling to hold everything together as the kitchen seemed to be a bit of a shambles. We were lucky as we were first in but as it got busier they were making too many mistakes with other people's orders! Our sharing starter was actually quite nice but the mains were a bit bland and could have been hotter. Having said that we did have a good night and the interior decor and ambience was very good. Toilets were spotless too - but just more attention to what's happening in the kitchen is needed if they are going to secure repeat business.
