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.

The best Laksa I have ever tasted! Such lovely staff too. So sad I live 5 hours away - wanted to try everything on the menu. I was so pleased to see how busy it was. An absolute must try

Amazing food, so much fantastic flavours. I have asked for gulten free and onion free options and had been given so much options. My pak choi was divine! Service was lovely and I will definitely be coming back next time when I visit Edinburgh

Best vegan restaurant ever. The food is out of this world and their char siu is SO good. Can’t fault this place if I tried. Portions are huge and everything is so good. The Laksa is an absolute winner.

First time ordering from here and it was absolutely delicious. Great flavour and presentation. As a vegan family we didn’t know where we would eat when we came to Edinburgh but we were pleasantly surprised by how many lovely vegan cafes and restaurants there are.

⭐️ Ashtonishing Malaysian food with a hint of spiciness and incredibly rich in flavour! Excellent ginseng tea and dessert of the day, too! Superfriendly staff and cosy atmosphere, by far one of the best vegan places I've ever visited! Can't recommend enough!! ⭐️

Hands down one of the best vegan meals we've ever had. We've been vegan for over 4 years and during that time have travelled around Europe sampling as many different restaurants as possible. After a long day in Edinburgh we called Soul Vegan to try...and get a table and despite the fact it was Saturday and they were very busy they did their best to get us a table. As we're not familiar with Malaysian cuisine the staff were extremely helpful with helping us choose a few dishes. We ordered the satay tofu, salt and pepper lotus, Laksa, and Gan Lau Mee (between 2 of us). Very generous portions (we could not finish everything) and absolutely incredible flavours! PS: we highly recommend trying the Laksa!More

First of all….let me be clear…I am NOT a vegetarian or indeed vegan. However since discovering this Malaysian vegan restaurant a few months ago it is now my default for dining out. The (plant based) food is amazing and as carnivore I feel very comfortable...with the menu choices. The staff cannot be faulted as they are so attentive and always interested in you dining experience. Price-wise, for Edinburgh, our party did not feel it was overly priced and the food is absolutely delicious. A word of warning though, it is not a large dining area but you also don’t feel too cramped. Did I say the food is delicious?More

Good atmosphere and design. Excellent staff. Extraordinarily overpriced food. The lemon sauce deep fried (everything is deep fried) mushroom was obscene for what it cost and had zero flavour. The menu is far too complex and trying too hard to replicate meat dishes rather than...focussing on great simple vegan food at FAIR price. I will never set foot in here or recommend it.More

We went early evening and choice a large range of the menu and shared amongst the three of us. Every single dish was phenomenal and the atmosphere was great too. House white was also really good

The best foodie experience we’ve had in Edinburgh. And being long term veggie the vegan menu fitted like a glove. The food was delicious , even sublime, and it doesn’t break the bank. We hugely recommend it, particularly to anyone visiting the Fringe because it’s...close by to the Pleasance.More

Wow! Weekend away in Edinburgh and fancied something a little different, and vegan, this little gem had such good reviews we had to try it and it's by far the best meal out we've had in a long time! Sometimes Vegan food can be bland...when eating out, not here, absolutely mouth watering, would highly recommend.......only sad we didn't order more dishes to try, a trip back much needed.More
