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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Highly recommend Meze Meze!! Food is absolutely amazing, fresh, good quantities and very tasty. Location is perfect for watching the world go by, and the service was excellent!

stoped here only for deserts.. Feels like family restaurant that screaming for Angry Ramsey to help them to make business better! I think hygiene is not strongest side for this very small restaurant as very no- welcome feeling service. I shouldn’t recommend you to stop...over here even if you keen for some middle-east dinner.. Go to Mussle in that is next door!More

Food was delicious, service was excellent and the food came ferry vast after each other. We were given a table downstairs at the restaurant, because the main floor was fully booked. But nevertheless the ambiance was nice. If you love Mediterranean food, then this restaurant...is a must to go.More

Had high expectations given the reviews but was a bit underwhelmed. The falafel were super dry and bland and most other dishes tasted like they were straight from the freezer and into a fryer. Ordered the spicy sausage was nice. The baba ghanoush was really...good but we were told it only came with one pita which wasn't enough and asked if we'd like to order another. Seems a bit cheeky given that our meal was over 80 bucks. The inside is nice toilets aside which were fairly ripe.More

First ordered hummus with pita and hummus was the best I’ve ever had with a touch of tahini, which made it very creamy and sprinkled with fresh pomegranate seeds and some whole garbanzo beans and little bits of small cut green pepper and orange pepper...& cubed watermelon. Next, we ordered the chicken Tajine; the chicken was done perfectly, not overcooked and dry, but tender and moist. The vegetables were properly done and all resting in a delightful and savory tomato sauce. We ordered that along with fresh pita bread that came from the oven so hot we could barely touch it. Service was quick, prompt and friendly. We would definitely go back. The restaurant is quite small and cozy having approximately 10 tables. It’s located just off of Princes’ Street.

The taste of home away from home. If you’re craving authentic Middle-Eastern cuisine, this is the spot to be at. Everything was so yummy and authentically prepared. We ordered the Mezze Mezze feast and indulged in stuffing our faces with tasty mezzes, main courses and...even took some home for later. Jamal, the chef, along with Alice and Abhi, our servers, were incredibly helpful and super hospitable. We’ll be coming here again!More

Food was fantastic. We eat a lot of Mediterranean style food and loved every dish. The lamb in the tomato sauce was the star of the show! I’d go back to Edinburgh just to eat here. Staff was fun and super helpful! 10 out of...10!!!!More

Had a very enjoyable and relaxed lunch here. We had no plans of what we would do and weren't even sure what we wanted but this looked good and we had a great lunch. The meze selection was great and everything we had was fantastic....The Turkish white wine was also perfect. Any restaurant that has a good wine list and serves everything by the glass and bottle is always a good find and this is definitely worth the visit if you're in EdinburghMore

Hmmm kind of average, it’s more 2-3 star but I’ll go with 3. We had the meze platter for two and two other main dishes. The platter was mainly just dips and in our opinion not worth £80. The food was just alright nothing that...stood out. Great location. Don’t use the restrooms until you’ve eaten just a tip.More

Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
