This tiny restaurant serves lovely food. The starters were small. But mains were a good size. Steak and lamb Koreas were our favourites. Definitely book as not many tables and it gets busy. Remember BYOB.

My favourite in Edinburgh. I love Turkish food and a friend of mine recommended us Pera when we came to visit her. Not only the food was extraordinary, but the staff was also so kind and thoughtful. You have to try the meze, so good!!

I brought my friends here for a treat after new year. We loved it and the portion sizes were amazing, we even took some home. We had the banquet which includes a bit of everything and is very good value for money! Strongly recommend

This restaurant is what I love about Leith. Great, traditional Turkish restaurant with the warmest and friendliest service you'll ever get. The two guys who run it are amazing and it's such an incredible spot for a tasty feast.
