Delicious food and very reasonable prices, informal and very friendly staff. I have been to this restaurant at least 4 times and it has been great every time. The big bowl soups are huge. Highly recommended.

Came here for dinner in May; the service was ok, bit lacklustre, but pleasant - there was just one waitress serving the full restaurant, and she did the best she could (it took quite a while for us to be served water though). We ordered...More

I'm afraid to say, having been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it, that the food on this occasion was terrible. I had a starter of mixed satay (£8) which was lukewarm and chewy. I ordered duck with noodles (£7.80) as my main. The duck...More

This place is a bit run down but it's good authentic food at cheap prices. Noodles come in a massive bowl and is very popular with Asians which is a good sign. Cheap prices so good value for money

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

for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
