I thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Beautiful decor and a fun place to eat. We chose several different dishes to share. Delicious mezze dips, tagines and halloumi fries and finished with a tasty sherbet. BYO and belly dancing on Saturday!

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
