A group of 9 of us popped in on the off chance as it was very close to where our business meeting was. I wish we had walked a bit further on. To be fair some of the food was fine. I had the chicken...More

Ate here with my wife and daughter, very mediocre food and over priced for what it was. Then to add insult to injury they charge for using both credit and debit cards and add a compulsory 10% service charge to your bill. Avoid this rip-off...More

We went here because we saw a Chinese family go in. The place was almost empty. We were given two different menus. One was for the "English" and the other was for the "Chinese People". We selected from the Chinese menu. The food was plentiful...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
