Amazing service and delicious food!
Highly recommend this restaurant. Service and atmosphere fantastic. The food is divine. Everything is 10/10. We will definitely be back.
I had a great time there! The BABA ganoush and the hummus were amazing! And the blackened sweet potato was cooked to perfection!
Excellent service and food (as always) was delicious although the baba ganoush was a little too Smokey this town, nonetheless the ema was very good indeed.
Extremely good value for money. Food very flavour some & generous portion sizes too.
Exquisite food - full of flavor and delicious all around. Portions were plentiful, especially since they describe them as "tapas" style. We will definitely be back, and likely bring friends!
First visit and not disappointed. Food was well presented, warm and tasty. Really varied menu. Spoilt for choice. Service was really good. Helpful and funny service. Great chat and knowledge of the menus
Small menu but oh so good. I went full- veggie with broccoli and lentil salad with cauliflower shawarma on the side, both were excellent and filling. The staff were speedy and helpful and the venue felt very safe in these COVID times. Recommended.
Food was outstanding, lovely to have sharing plates to sample different things. The iced cardamon coffee to finish was heaven! Service excellent. Cant wait to dine again.
Fantastic food, great value, excellent service. Would definitely go again!
Excellent service and some really interesting, different dishes. Very tasty!
We had the most amazing food, delicious dishes from the mezze and grill menu's, and very nice wine to accompany! Service was excellent ans covid restrictions good- not overbearing but felt safe. Excellent excellent food and can't wait to go back!
The food was delicious and we were comfortably seated. The staff was very pleasant. The only negative (minor) points was that the plates were far too small and the room had poor acoustics.
A colourful and vibrant restaurant which matched the food perfectly. The bar was nothing special but don't let that put you off. The waiters were friendly and helpful, explaining the menu in more detail and offering suggestions when we asked. The room was busy and the ambience was relaxed but lively. Every dish we ordered was fabulous, zingy, tasty and full of flavour. My husband loved the lamb but for me the sea bass stole the show - don't miss out on the barbequed grapes!
A lovely first night for our stay in Edinburgh, we'll definitely be back next time we vist.
Great food and nice service. The place is beautifully decorated also.
Really enjoyed our meal. Fresh, tasty and interesting menu. It did not disappoint. Great value for money
Great food, great service and would definitely return...
Flavour bombs! Lamb was the highlight for us. Small plates deceiving, and with flavours so powerful, less is definitely more on this occasion. Highly recommend
Loved it! The food was absolutely outstanding and staff were lovely! Can’t wait to visit again when next in Edinburgh!
Attentive staff. Food arrived promptly. Hummus delicious but pitta bread nothing special. Cauliflower fritters superb. Lamb shawarma with cous cous was okay not much lamb. I had the lentil and broccoli which was competent enough. Chocolate flan with cherries was a portion for two and delicious.
Tasty meze and small plates. Decent portions and excellent value!
Good tasty food. We had early evening meal so not so busy but still good atmosphere.
Really enjoyed our meal and trying some new dishes. Excellent service and setting.
Great food in relaxed surroundings. Will definitely return.
Very yummy food - would definitely recommend to other people!
Everything was brilliant ! The only thing that could have been better was perhaps the espresso martinis ! Everything else was delicious ! Thanks
A fairly limited choice of dishes on the menu but that’s no bad thing, as all dishes amazing. We had 6 dishes (between 2 of us) & all were great. I’ll be returning & would highly recommend.
Great food and ambience was just right, the lovely weather helped.
Good vegetarian options and nice environment! However, the food was not up to the same standards we are used to from Baba: bread a little stale, some dishes didn’t get the attention they normally do.
Beautiful, delicious, wholesome food in a sophisticated atmosphere with excellent, attentive service. We have finally found our go to food stop and can’t wait to return!
Really great food and drinks, staff were lovely. Couldn't recommend highly enough!!
Incredible food, service, decor and ambience - highly recommend!
excellent food and service. nice refreshing menu with something for everyone
Creative and tasty food. Delicious cocktails but they are a bit too expensive. Food is great value. Interior decoration cool and relaxed.
Food was incredible and amazing service! Would definitely return.
I thought food would be slightly better. A little bland. Don’t think I would return.
We went for lunch for my friend’s birthday, food was amazing, I would recommend if you like Middle Eastern style food, so much better than the usual in Middle Eastern restaurants, all very fresh and very different
Fantastic food, loved everything we ordered especially the lamb and the cauliflower . Our waitress was excellent, very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Would definitely recommend.
Really enjoyed the meal and the variety of options. We were in the map room and the decor was lovely. Could have had a few more cocktails on the menu, but that's a personal preference!
Loved it! Food was delicious and had a lovely atmosphere.
