Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Edinburgh

Nok's Kitchen

8 Gloucester St, Edinburgh EH3 6EG, UK – 0131 225 4804

This place has been different restaurants over the years and there's been a few Thai ones but this is the best. The dining room is very cosy with exposed stone walls and low ceilings. The building was built in the 1600's though! We had the lunch menu, which is great value. The spring rolls were tasty and the pastry was really thin and crispy. The chicken satay was juicy and the sauce very tasty. I had the battered fillet of sea bass for a main, which was excellent. The batter was crispy and the vegetables that came with it are all well cooked and great with the sauce. My wife has the red Thai curry which she said was very good. I'm glad this place is back to its best and will hopefully be back soon.

Family dinner. Recommend for taste, the minced chicken is the standout dish. Spoiled a bit when a large party took over the small restaurant and service for those of us left deteriorated. In all fairness its a small family style place so serving a big party must have been a stretch. All the dishes were wholesome but they not for big appetites. The rice served "for one" was barely enough, we needed 6 for 4 of us. I think they spend a lot of time and money on presentation and the dishes are spectacular. But £100 for 4 with no drinks other than water is quite pricey. We left still a bit hungry.

Cosmo Restaurants Edinburgh

Greenside Place, Edinburgh EH1 3AA, UK – 0131 557 0808

Very good variety of food. From starters to desserts. Chefs making dishes on request and unlimited soft drinks included in the price. This is very good value for money. The atmosphere is also very nice and well decorated. Self service place but all interactions I had with the waiter were pleasant.

This is a lovely big restaurant. It is a buffet style doing Chinese Indian Mexican Italian & Carvery. The staff are all very pleasant. They have lots of different desserts to, plus a chocolate fountain. It is open from 12 noon. Prices are very good. You could spend a few hours just taking your time to try the different types of food. Booking is advisable. You also get 25%of parking,which is really good to. Well worth a visit you won't be disappointed.

Restaurant Martin Wishart

54 Shore, Edinburgh EH6 6RA, UK – 0131 553 3557

Came to celebrate our daughter's birthday. Perfect choice for such at lunch time. Well paced meal. Excellently prepared and presented. No portion was too small nor too abundant, nor pushing aside the next plate. I really enjoyed the cheese plate. Five flavorful selections of mature cheeses. Bravo

Complex and beautifully balanced food. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Superb every time. (Not true of every Michelin starred restaurant in Edinburgh)
