this is the only Japanese I ever tried after several visits to Edinburgh, but hey we always came back because of the food which remains delicious after years. Especially love the ramen which is warm and quite fulfilling, love the pork. During the second visit...More

Went here for a friends birthday and was pleasantly surprised, fantastic service, delicious food and a different but welcome ambience from most restaurants in Edinburgh.

We've eaten at Tang's for years and had some lovely meals. 1st time in at least a year and probably the most disappointing Japanese meal we've ever had. Off-tasting tuna sashimi, chicken teriyaki made from sliced supermarket frozen-style, tough fillets, thin sauce. Nothing like meals...More

We popped in for lunch yesterday. The restaurant was nice with multi-levels so had lots of seating. We are from Vancouver where sushi is outstanding. This is more of a noodle house - with limited sushi and maki items. The California rolls were not enjoyable...More

Got to say not impressed. Very good staff. Food arrived promptly. Poor drink selection and grossly over priced for very average sushi.

Old Town
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
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
