Again, it’s probably a difficult time to get reliable and we’ll trained staff in the service industry right now but please train them to serve customers better. Taking food away from the table prematurely, no thanks when leaving a tip, the basics. Very poor levels...of interaction. You took our booking for 9:30pm and purposely left the hall door wide open that nearly killed us with the cold breeze at 10:30pm to signal that you were done serving people. Having spent £131 with you and left a 10% tip. As you can imagine, we’ll be rushing back to book next time. Let’s hope lunch at the Waldorf Astoria can do better today!!More

Came here for my birthday week and was treated with the best sushi me and my partner have ever had. Staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. Little extra was the chef out in middle of restaurant putting the sushi together. Lovely place.

Such super service in a warm and friendly environment. I felt like we were dining in a family home. Reasonable prices. Food was tasty and well presented. We tried a selection of our favourites. Good sized servings perfect for sharing. As with most restaurants in...Edinburgh, best to make a booking to avoid disappointment.More

This was my first time trying shushi after my girlfriend encouraged me into and I can honestly say that hibikis food was better than I had ever expected. The service was all quick aswell as amazing food too!

This place really is a hidden gem. Everything we ate was delicious - sashimi, gyozas, tempura all fantastic. Really nice atmosphere and attentive service too. Will definitely be back!

We came across Hibiki by accident - we were aiming for the Thai restaurant in the same street but it looked so busy that we opted for the quieter Hibiki instead. This turned out to be an excellent choice. The restaurant itself is lovely, elegant...and calm, and the staff were welcoming and helpful. The food was an absolute joy - vegetarians were very well catered for, including sushi, and our dishes were all beautifully flavoured and presented.More

Honestly the nicest atmosphere I’ve ever eaten in, truly authentic eastern food with equally exceptional service and feel. Can’t recommend enough.

We got a table for three here at very short notice and we're very glad we did. Hidden in the basement this restaurant is the closest thing to being in Japan in terms of food and service. We had sushi and katsu, including the vegetarian...versions of both and it was all delicious. Everything a Japanese restaurant should be, but so often isn't. We'll definitely be back!More

We had a delicious meal at Hibiki and great, genuine service. We opted for a mixture of sushi rolls, tempura and katsu and everything was tasty and very fresh. It was lovely to have something different and enjoy great food. We would visit again, thank...you to the staff.More

Honestly the food here is superb, it's really topped off by the staff and the value for money. The atmosphere is great, the best meal I've had outside of Japan. I can't fault anything :)

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
