Visited with a very short person of 4 years old, her parents and my partner. Lovely welcome and service throughout. Haggis balls with chilli jam, superbe. Fried squid, amazing. Everything was amazing. The short person had a specially prepared meal that she ate in between being kept busy with all the little things that they keep to keep short people... More

Nice premises; Food O.K.; Friendly front of house staff let down badly by the kitchen. Thirty minutes for a plate of soup to arrive. twenty-five minutes for our sweet to arrive. A couple sitting opposite weren't prepared to wait any longer and left. We won't be dining here again.

Had brunch and a coffee here. The "full breakfast" was nicely cooked and presented, with some nice touches like the home-made "potato cake" - good value for money. The restaurant is light and airy (it is bigger than I had realised - there is another raised seating area behind the front part), and there were quite a few people in... More

A small and independent restaurant/cafe, HK is very good - menu quite extensive and all food and drink prepared quickly and to a high standard - and all delicious! Quite limited in terms of number of seats, so may be advisable to book it you think it may be busy. Service very good in all respects.

Been here a few times but overall not impressed with the snotty service seems attentive and detailed if you are middle aged and look affluent. I noticed this when the adjustment table was asked how everything was and where as I was not then at the end of it they asked if I would leave a tip without asking how... More

We met with another couple for lunch here. We each ordered different items and all four were perfectly cooked - I particularly liked that the food wasn't greasy, over-spiced or too rich. It was perfectly prepared and delicious, and after a burger I wasn't left feeling either bloated or hungry. The service was great but not perfect, for example once... More

Stopped here for lunch after a long morning walking followed by shops on a bitterly cold day. Son had chicken burger, with avocado and bacon plus chips, I had broccoli, cauliflower & blue cheese soup. All food was freshly cooked, hot and delicious - my only very minor comment would be that mine was a wee bit stingy on the... More

This was a return visit for an afternoon catch up with friends. So we had tea/coffee, cakes etc. This is what HK excells at. The welcome, as always, was warm, the service was with a smile, and the coffees and cake were delicious. This is a really nice place to get away from the hustle and bustle, especially at this...

A wonderful, freshly cooked veggie breakfast, delicious coffee and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Every part of the breakfast was delicious, the seating was comfortable and spacious and the coffee was rich and smooth. I was the only male present at that time, it seemed to be the place to go for ladies that brunch in Newington, and a smart and... More
