This place is a hidden gem, and worth the walk up from the Royal Mile. It's tucked out of the way so it's not rammed. The menu is quick and easy, and the noodles are delicious!

Tasty starters and mains. Healthy ingredients and cooking. Filling portion sizes. We doubled up on salt and chilli squid starter followed by tofu ho-fun noodles and beef ho-fun noodles. Fast service and super friendly staff. Great price. You have to try it. Braw.

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
