I ate the whole lamb shank in a creamy curry sauce which was absolutely fantastic, my wife had the chicken pad prig sod which was slightly less exciting, albeit still well cooked. Only two criticisms I would level are: 1. There was only one red...More

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

for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
