Wanted to eat here for a really long time and when it shut for rebranding I was devastated- whoever thought of the name... It's questionable. However I ate here on Saturday with a voucher for £20. Service was very quick, drinks arrived first both opting...More

We ate at the newly branded "Slurp at the Kirk" at the end of the festival. Firstly, the new branding/name doesn't seem in keeping with the Japanese menu and we were both rather confused by it. The restaurant was rather quiet on a festival Friday...More

Had lunch here with friends. We had Katsura curry and ramen, very nice. Would dine here again. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The restaurant itself is quite casual.

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
