Starter and sweet good. Only criticism was the vegetable kebab - too dry really needed a sauce. Wine nice . Good value with Groupon voucher

Excellent fresh cooked food, colourful, delicate but beautifully flavoured. Recommend the unique baba ganoush equivalent and lamb shish and king prawn mains also exceptionally tasty

Bought a Groupon for Rojava which was £23 for 2 starters,mixed BBQ platter and coffee/dessert for 2 people. What a bargain! The place was empty, we were the only people in there and half of the place was in darkness, which seemed a shame but...More

Early Wednesday evening, so quiet, and no noisy music. A large airy dining room, with plenty of space. Excellent friendly staff - waiter and chef - and a good choice of tasty food [rather too much for pensioners, so the doggy bag provided another meal...More

I've been here a few times and normally eschew the lunch menu and go straight to the wider choice. This time, however I thought I'd try the more humble lunch menu. I started with a soup - nice, warming, subtly flavoured and supplied with a...More

2nd time here and cannot say anything except planning 3rd meal here already. The food is always perfectly cooked, presented and the service is attentive and friendly. The décor and music complement the food....perfect. Any poor reviews are a mystery to me.

Nice to visit with me and my husband at Rojava.Food, service, decoration really awesome. Nothing to complain. Wish to back very soon. Recommend to all visit once though you like Kurdish food.

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
