We started off at Maki Ramen, but something had gone awry with our reservation so we were directed to Maki Maki, another location of the chain just around the corner. The tonkotsu ramen was delicious, the flavours authentic, the service good. One small detail: When...More

This place was literally next road to where me and my friend was staying and decided to have dinner here. Upon entering I realised at how nice the inside is (especially as Southside is a little more high street/university area). The chefs were making the...More

We were craving for sushi. Googled and landed up at maki maki, a small sushi place on the main road of south bridge. The place consisted of only a small kitchen and counter big enough for about 10 persons. We managed to find a place...More

The sushi was so fresh and tasty. The salmon was buttery and a generous portion. The ratio between rice and salmon was perfect. It' so common to find so much rice rather than salmon and this really ruins the flavor, not only that it barely...More

Simply outstanding. There are no frills just flavour. Scotland, and I'd argue the UK, has simply no sushi place more superb than this (and I seek out sushi wherever I go). The setting is simple yet being able to see the master at work behind...More

Small but wonderful traditional Japanese restaurant that prepares your food in front of you. The staff are helpful and attentive - most definitively a must go for any Japanese cuisine

Just along the street from the Festival Theatre - this tiny place on Nicolson Street is an absolute must visit for any fan of Japanese cuisine. Or for anyone who just loves good, impressively fresh food, with a bit of restaurant theatre for good measure....More

We have been here 4 times this year. The food was a bit pricey but was excellent on our first 2 visits, which is why we went back for more. Without a doubt, this was the best sushi place in Edinburgh. The sushi was then...More

Maki Maki is truly the best place to have sushi in Edinburgh. The lunch menu is also very reasonably priced if you want to try some of their foods in cheaper prices, including the incredible Omakase (Chef's choice of individually served courses). The place itself...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
