A little gem that you may not think to visit, food quality was excellent and very reasonably priced for Central Edinburgh. Well worth a visit

We ate here early on a Saturday evening . It was very unimpressive on the outside and rather bright and shabby inside. The food more than made up for any apparent lack of style. My husband had salt and pepper spare ribs which he declared the best he has ever had. I had special dumplings which tasted simply heavenly. My main of poached fish was very hot and spicy with remarkable flavours. The fish was earthy , probably a freshwater fish and was poached head, skin bones and all! I would love to visit again to explore their remarkable menu further.

Waited a good 45 mins for our meals and then one person had the rice only. Had to ask for the rest of his meal and for hot rice. Service was poor but the food was not bad
