Arrived and found our table had not yet cleared so had the opportunity of watching some of the dishes come out of the kitchen before we ordered, and look at the cold meze in the window fridge. We , there were 4 of us ordered a selection of hot and cold meze to share, all were lovely but the meat meze had more cheese than meAt. My main course of lam shish kebab was very large and lovely, meat was perfectly cooked succulent and very tasty, accompanied by rice with pomegranate and a small salad. Delicious! All main courses were large, tasty and very much enjoyed. The lamb stew came on a plate perched on a heater which we turned off in case we set the place slight. Great food, BYOB which is always a bonus, very very small so book! Feels more like a cafe than a restaurant but nothing wrong in that .

If you want to have some really tasty charcoal grilled meat, this is the right place. I've been living in Edinburgh for the last two years and Pera absolutely offers the best lamb and chicken meat in town. Service is great, the owner is very welcoming and also the rest of the staff is always kind and ready to help.

Great option for both a romantic dinner or a night out with friends!

We tried to eat here quite a few times but the small restaurant was always packed. Finally managed to get a table for 3 on mother's day and we were not disappointed. Great quality, fresh produce, generous portions, fair prices and lovely staff. We'll be back.

I was staying with people who were vegetarians and this restaurant seemed able to accomodate that prediliction. The food was good, the service very friendly, you can BYOB but no alcohol is on offer, but there are plenty of nice refreshing drinks to choose from.
We had a plate of "meat" starters to share and one of Veg starter to share. They were both good I had a lamb kofta for the main course which came in a long roll, and not in balls which I was expecting.. it was tasty.
Nothing was spectacular but a nice place, small and intimate , tables close together. Bathroom in basement wall papered with comics from Istanbul .. fun.
The baklava was gratis for dessert.
