Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We ordered Turkish Brunch bagel and Truva Royale. The food was great and the staff were so kind that we felt like ourselves at home. If you are into Turkish cuisine, you should try Cafe Truva.

Called in by chance, looking for lunch before heading home. Had a lovely Turkish toastie and brought a scone home. Massively regret only buying one scone, it was delicious!

What a fantastic place, been there twice already. Nice place to meet up with friends, warm and cosy atmosphere .Well looked after from walking in the door till you leave. Lovely and friendly owner and the staff are very tentative and caring. Lovely breakfast, plus...they have gluten free option which is important for me. Coffee is very good as well. Definitely will go back again, I recommend this place.More

A first visit since Covid to this deservedly popular eatery in an excellent waterside location in Leith lived up to expectations. Tasty, authentic food, excellent staff (attentive, efficient but not overbearing), relaxed ambience... Just two points to note that prevented me from according top marks:...1) £8.90 for 2 Turkish coffees? A little excessive, perhaps? 2) Baklava tastes better served at room temperature rather than cold.More

Fantastic little Turkish cafe with a great mix of Turkish favorites plus your Scots favs like breakfast rolls. But it’s the vibe and and coffee that keeps me coming back. Small, local cafe done perfectly well. This is the place to come for that calming...early morning coffee. Recommended if you’re in LeithMore

Stopped for lunch after walking The Leith Water. I had the best wrap with hummus and roasted veg that I have ever eaten. Friendly staff, brilliant situation near the marina, great value for money.

I can’t believe we’ve stayed at the Shore for two and a half years and haven’t tried Truva until this weekend! It was really great! We were warmly welcomed, seated and served. I got a fry up and my partner got the poached eggs. Everything...was really tasty and came nice and hot. Service was so friendly throughout. A must try!More
