Went into Omar khayyams with 3 young children, whilst on holiday. The service was faultless, the staff were so professional but also super friendly , they looked after us and our children so well, they made whole experience so easy for us. Normally family friendly restaurants mean you compromise on food quality, bit this was not the case. The starter... More

Went there for a 3 course business lunch but as soon as the "manager" left we were put out after only two courses as the staff wanted to shut. The staff hoovered over us and swiped the pates from us if it looked like we had finished. I had to tell the waiter to leave my bowl alone. Horrible people... More

It's been a while since we have visited and the place has had a major makeover and huge seating capacity. We arrived as a family of four in the evening and were speedily seated. The staff were efficient but not engaging. Focused on the job and that was fine. The food arrived quickly and was good to the taste. My... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
