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.

Always brilliant food. Fresh, clean and nice staff. Good selection and decent city prices. Curry of the day is well worth a try, chilli was also excellent.

We arrived in Edinburgh mid afternoon and due to our plans needed something filling to last us. We stumbled upon this just around the corner from our hotel, and thought it perfect for a late lunch. I had the standard sized jacket with chilli con...carne, and my pal had the standard sized jacket with chicken tikka. To note - they offer standard and large and the standard was huge!! Can eat in or takeaway. Would imagine its very popular at lunchtime, and rightly so! Would go back.More

If you like jacket potatoes perfect spot - as a warning a double is rather filling so watch out you are hungry :)

Delightful quick lunch for something as quintessentially British and it’s been there since the 1980’s Fun for us to see an entire shop devoted to baked potatoes that were delishly topped with various things Walk up counter service and the staff was very good Plenty...of vegetarian options - you could go there several times and not eat the same thingMore

Small shop on a quiet street off the royal mile offers many adorned baked potatoes with vegetarian and meat fillings Friendly chap who prepared our hot potato, quickly, with Indian add-ons. Yummy lunch! Clean shop, quick service, fair prices, great food!

Peter Penguin and I happened to look down the street and Tempting Tattie caught my eye! What a perfect idea for lunch or a midday snack! I ordered the cheddar potato with salt, pepper and butter. Simple never tastes so good! My potato was perfectly...cooked - soft and sweet on the inside, slightly crispy and chewy on the outside. Everything melted together in pure harmony. I need a Tempting Tattie in my neighborhood. Peter Penguin 🐧 gives it 2 chef kisses!More

It was completely by accident that I bumped into this place, as I was looking for a quick lunch, and being a potato lover, I was prepared for something nice. And I got so much more!! :) I told the owner I was vegetarian, and...he quickly assembled something incredibly delicious from potatoes, cheese, and a chickpea-based dish. It was so good, I went back every day during my stay in Edinburgh! Very friendly service, great price. Can warmly recommend it anyone! (not only vegetarians)More

I used to love going to the Tempting Tattie when I was a kid. My son and I were visiting Glasgow from Canada and we just had to travel to Edinburgh so I could introduce him to the castle, the Royal Mile, Victoria street and...of course the Tempting Tattie. I was so pleased to find that the owner is also someone who used to love going to the Tempting Tattie when he was a kid. Very friendly service, clean, and just as good as I remember!More

Great healthy food at this place. Highly recommend in every way.. I had a cheese and pickle jacket potato and my husband had a more spicy option. Both were delicious and much better for us than having a takeaway burger.
