Fantastic little restaurant with superb range of lamb, chicken and vegetarian dishes. Incredibly good value for money and very friendly service. Don’t forget to bring your own bottle.

On our first night in Edinburgh we had take away from this Afro Caribbean restaurant. The mother and daughter team turned out great food! The Trinidad Chicken was particularly good.

We stopped in here for dinner and it was lovely, we all had something different; chicken, vegetables and lamb and they were all delicious. A nice little family run place! The mango lassi did not disappoint either! Highly recommend trying it!

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
