Our first visit and must say that the 3 dishes we ordered were delicious and very close to Malaysian/Singaporean style cooking. We had the stir fried beef hor fun, kangkung belacan and pickled vegetable and tofu soup. Place to visit if you are craving for...More

Having had a superb meal at the Fountainbridge restuarant (which has now closed down) we were keen to try the sister in Newington. Not impressed!!! Nothing was anyway comparable. We ate it but left very disappointed...

Went to Kampung Ali with my Malaysian mother, and it definetely smelled of our home cooking! Not a fancy place at all, but cheap and nice food. The roti cennai, thin layered bread with a curry, was really great, but I suspect they use frozen...More

For those who didn't know, the name is misleading. It's taken from 'Ah Lee' which is a Chinese name but converted by the owners to be 'Ali' to attract Muslim patrons. The name use is conveniently documented in their a small section in their menu....More

Used a Tastecard to eat here recently - 2 for 1 on starters and main courses. Very full for a midweek night, with a lot of Chinese there - I'm sure this was because of the authenticity of the food. Certainly not fine dining -...More

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
