We wandered in during the Fringe so it took a little while to get seated and then served but the waiters were sweet once they got to us. The menu is bizarre: the "indo-Tapas" concept includes smallish dishes from Chinese, Mexican, and a mixed bag...More

Went to this place after the Fringe and it was brilliant . Staff good and tapas brilliant. Really good and very tasty. Drinks were a wee bit slow but a few reminders and everything ok. Would def recommend it.

Southside & Holyrood
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

arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
