Indian and Thai. Together. Forever. Not a huge fan of either but maybe, just maybe I've been doing it wrong. This was incredibly good! Best green curry I've ever had...simple but with zest. All the flavor meshed with the plates provided. It was so good...More

My partner and I decided to pop in for a meal last summer. The food was average and the decor was lovely. However, the service was nothing short of diabolical. Servants rushed us at every opportunity to finish our courses and added on a service...More

Worst buffet in whole of Scotland. Nothing was cooked properly including naan breads. Not enough dishes. In short, not worth the money.

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
