Very friendly staff. This place has been there for years and we usually visit during the Festival. Kebabs with pitta seem to have changed to wraps this year. Still tasted nice though. Not a high class restaurant so if that is what you are looking...More

I've been coming here for 5 years, always good food for reasonable prices. Friendly staff and open late on the weekend if you want food on a night out

Had a shawarma here last night. Good food but the place doesn't exactly scream clean. Would be a little worried if I wasn't drunk!

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

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
