Wonderful foodie tour through the Middle East with a fabulous host/owner of this gem. Hummus with peppers was mid-range spicy (can get it without peppers too) and the marinated grape leaves were superb! Chicken and lamb BBQ was super and the various sauces were homemade,...More

Be surprise with the tasty of the food. From the outside, it doesn’t warrant confidence but the food is pretty good.

We purchased a Groupon voucher for the BBQ buffet and it was superb. Lots of different items on a bed of rice and bulgur wheat. Starters and desserts were also excellent. Staff really friendly and attentive. Well worth a visit if in Edinburgh.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along

Hi, thanks for your question. Our Borek and some Kubba starters contain wheat, but there are many other starters to choose from. Many of our main dishes come served with bulgur wheat as standard, but if you ask our waiter... More
