“I am not a fussy customer, this is my first ever review.
I wish I had read the prior review before entering the restaurant. We were hungry after seeing various Fringe shows and entered around early supper time as the first customers. Do not be deceived by the menu choices, you can do better buying a tesco meal deal, at least your choice will be available!
The house white was dubious in taste, almost fizzy, but we're students so we drank it!
The starter was a cheap iceberg lettuce salad with microwaved prebought falaffels and humous slapped on the side.
The main was 'morrocan chicken' with couscous. It arrived as plain value couscous and undercooked soft chicken, not tender, undercooked.
When pudding was supposed to arrive we were told there was only one tiramisu, strange given that we were the first customers during a busy tourist period! Begrudgingly we ordered a cheesecake.
Whilst eating pudding we heard they did not take cards as they were 'new'...well the previous review was written almost 12 months ago!
We went to pay the bill at the counter so as not to cause a disturbance amongst the few other customers, we tried to negotiate the price but the 'chef'brandished his chicken cooking temperature tool infront of me, insisting it was cooked. We were offered another but did not take the risk.
As we left a couple had waited for us on the pavement outside, they remarked that they were as disatisfied as we were and had unfortunately also paid the entirity of the bill.
Forget candles, you need your own cooker.”

“The service was overly attentive to the point of being smothering, we were unable to have a conversation over dinner without being interupted every few minutes. Meals were bland and simple. One meal was different to the menu description. Meals were accompanied by a cheap ice berg lettuce salad and tomato wedges, which looked as if it had come straight out of a bag from the local supermarket. I am unsure if a qualified chef is employed at this rerstaurant, because the meals were so poor in quality. Do yourself a favour and cook a meal at home instead of visiting this restaurant.”
