We ate here because every other place in the neighborhood had at least a half hour wait and it was nearly 8 PM and we were hungry. We ate a very beige meal of fried food, sitting on backless stools. There's better food in the...More

We just popped in for a quick bite. After checking the food in the cabinet, which looked like it was made yesterday, the only choice for us to make was to order burgers. Our surprise was to find rather slow staff who weren't able to...More

I visited here tonight for a takeaway and was horrified to be charged double the normal prices ! When I questioned it they admitted the prices are fot the whole of August during the festival, so basically ripping off the tourists to our city !

Stayed nearby for the Rugby Championship Final. Myself and a friend had a donner kebab. Meat was anaemic and for the price £7.50 for the large you got very little for the money. There was no choice on what salad you wanted just the sauce....More

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
