A good, no-fuss place for when you're in a hurry. Food is cheap, but quite tasty. I liked their falafel.

Stopped off here before a Fringe show and can honestly say it was the best chicken kebab I've ever had!

I've been coming here for years now, and this is one of my favourite places to come to in Edinburgh. I find it difficult to walk past here. Best meal they do is the chicken shawarma.

Stopped in for lunch. Falafel sandwich nicely prepared in their wrap...not pita but similar. You can add as much tahini sauce as you wish. Also had lamb shishkabob. Very tasty lean meat. Side of the best humus ever.

Best doner kebab plate I've ever had. Succulent meat, not greasy, hummus to die for, chilli sauce was awesome, pita was home made and fabulous. Fresh salad and black olives. Friendly service in a canteen cafe style takeaway. Authentic food!

Could do better but it's what you pay for. Cheap and easy but a little but rough. But no spice on the chicken doner? For shame!

Love this place. Have been going for years . Small, and maybe in need of a redecoration, but the food is amazing, the prices are great and I look forward to popping in whenever I get the chance!

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
