This place was full of Malaysians, which was a good sign. The staff are exceptionally friendly. The Roti Cenai (pancakes with curry sauce) are to die for. Our mains were lovely too.

Go for the main dishes by all means if you have to, but gorge on the starters. Arrange an array of spicy wings and ribs, wash them down with a Singha or a Tsing Dao beer and enjoy...it's more like a café...

One of the first time I could eat gluten free fried rice that was excellent. The server was nice and friendly.

Absolutely horrible experience! If it was possible to give negative ratings to a restaurant, this appalling establishment would have earned a -5/5 stars from me. The mixed satay was lathered in so much watered down, peanut sauce that it resembled a dirty diaper more so...More

If you are in Edinburgh and like SE Asian food then this is the place to eat (better than the other local Malaysian restaurants). Great for a cheap, quick tasty lunch. Really enjoyable if you know your Malaysian food - tell them what you want...More

I studied abroad in Edinburgh and managed to find this place toward the end of my stay. I probably ate here four or five times in the last week I spent in Edinburgh... I still have dreams about their Mie Goreng and Roti Canai. If...More

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
