The food was excellent in taste although we didn’t appear to get what we ordered as one of our main courses. Disappointed that as our starter was being served they advised us we could only pay by cash. Thankfully we did have cash but due...to the location if we hadn’t wouldn’t have been an easy fix. Service was average didn’t even check to see that everything was ok. Will we be back????? Probably notMore

Visited again recently, having visited a few years ago and we were equally impressed with the food and service as on our first visit. A really enjoyable meal

The first thought that came to mind when the food arrived was that the restaurant must have changed hands and was being run by a different team than when we used to visit a few years ago and sure enough a quick google search confirmed...this to be correct. Bland, under seasoned, tasted like everything came out of a jar and the rice was overcooked mush that tasted like it had been cooked the week before and kept warm since. The Pho was disapointlingly flavourless. We've had beter instant stuff from a packet. The chicken in the curry was ineddibly tough like stringly rubber as if it had been overcooked in the sauce for hours, and despite that, it hadn't adsorbed any of the flavour of the sauce. If this is the level of quality they can provide, then £40 for 2X main courses, a shared small starter and a shared can of juice is utterly unaaceptableMore

Piled in after the rugby for a vietnamese feast. Small venue, very handy haymarket location, very friendly staff, street foody type atmosphere. Everyone very delighted with their choices

Blink and you'll miss this as you walk up Morrison Street, but it's well worth a visit. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing - fresh and prepared quickly. Definitely recommend this place!!

Never been before, went on a recommendation as one of our party of 4 has a gluten intolerance. Wasn't clear from menu which items were GF and we ended up with 3 staff at the table trying to decide what was GF and not too...spicy. All got sorted and food came quickly (I agree with the person that said the deep fried spring rolls are amazing!). I had a beef pho as always wanted to try this classic Vietnamese dish, we had a creamy curry, street food chicken and rice and a chicken/rice stir fry. All delicious - great flavours, no complaints at all. Very happy with the food choices. It's a BYOB but I can't say whether there's any bottle shops nearby as we brought ours from other part of the city. Service was good, staff were lovely. Certainly highly recommend this place if you have no allergies/special dietary requirements. If you do, may be worth a quick visit or call before to decide what you can eat.More

The food was really tasty. The highlights were the chicken satay and spicy sunset curry. The service was super friendly too - would recommend :)

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
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
