Popped in here as close to National Museum of Scotland. It was very busy. Quite a few Chinese people eating there so assumed it must be good! I ordered satay yam-mein, a Malaysian dish of chicken, fishball, king prawn and veg (apparently). What arrived was a dish with lots of king prawns and, strangely, pineapple. Needless to say, it was... More

Busy place, took my son for lunch. We were served pre-fried stuff within 4 minutes, clearly from a refrigerator which was slopped on a plate and served absolutely stone cold. Given the lack of care, I couldn't trust this place to deal in any way professionally with a replacement request and was never asked to comment. Glad to leave. Absolutely... More

No frills, no bells and whistles. Cheap food, large portions. Some dishes were better than others. Noodles were good- though vegetables were too al dente for my liking. Also avoid the soft drinks they come from a large bottle meaning they are flat.

We always wanted to try food here & decided to go on a Saturday evening. We ordered Singapore noodles with tofu+chicken, Malaysian noodles & chicken satay. The chicken satay was served with some worst tasting sauce & the chicken itself was very dry & chewy. The Singapore noodles was not fresh and was cold when served & without the tofu... More

Big portions, tasty food, fast service, value for money, decoration was traditional or exotic. We were lucky that it was open at 22:30 in the night (others were closed)

We found this place by chance and saw locals eating there - always a good sign 😉 The food was indeed very good and cheap. Great for a budget meal.

Not much of a noodle bar connoisseur, but enjoyed food, the portion sizes were generous and it all came pretty quickly - within 5-10 mins. The price was reasonable too.

I visited here with my boyfriend. We had deep fried chilli beef to start which was nice and fresh! He had a duck dish for main, and I had a fish/chicken/pork dish. Both were served hot and with a LOT of egg fried rice. Its costs no more than a takeaway, and the portions are certainly big. I also enjoyed... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
