Having spent some time in the Philippines many years ago, when I spotted the Rice Terraces, it seemed an opportunity to catch up. I don't rate Filipino food as one of the great cuisines - such as near neighbours Thai or Indonesian; maybe too much...More

I'm glad I found this Filipino restaurant in Edinburgh. The food is awesome, especially the pork / chicken sisig, you have to try it if it's your first time at Rice Terraces. The service is great and the waiter(s) are attentive even when the restaurant...More

Had a fabulous meal! we were so happy to find the restaurant after the Elephant House was too busy, but I know we chose the best place to eat! Only disappointment is we live so far away and can't return often!

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
