Dropped in for lunch today and had to wait over an hour for food, which was very tasty. However, way too long to wait and they don't take cards!

Really good Dosa just as my husband remembers from his travels in India. Spicy salted lassi very good. Where the restaurant falls down is the excessively noisy extraction rumbling continuously throughout our meal, this made the overall experience ok not great.

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
