I have never really liked going here but sometimes necessity kicks in late late at night when the tummy rumbles. Not the warmest welcome you'll ever get either.

Extremely poor service. Very rude. Swearing and use of foul language. Food was tasty but the service left a sour taste. DO NOT VISIT. Far superior fast food nearby with 10x better customer service. Ruined the end of a fantastic night. Bitterly disappointed.

The perfect place to grab a cheap pizza after a night at the pub! Granted it's not the classiest venue, but if you're looking for a takeaway to bring home and eat on the sofa then it's delicious! Wonderful freshly made pizzas at great prices.

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
