We were here for lunch and had a great meal food. Friendly service and efficient too. I had the polish dumplings, pierogi, which were really tasty. You can mix and match from the 6/7 different flavours. Really nice. A good place for lunch.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel

sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
