Food OK, misleading pricing.
Posted on 01 / 27 / 2011
I ate here in January 2011 with my partner, during a city break to Edinburgh. We ate in the evening.
We had printed out the register of veggie restaurants from this website in advance. On arriving, we had a look at the menu posted in the window and liked the look of the dishes, so decided to go in for a meal.
After sitting and being handed the menu, I immediately noticed a discrepancy between the prices in this menu and those displayed in the window (approximately Â£1 more expensive for a main course). I quizzed the waiter about this - he checked the window prices and apologised, saying that the menu in the window was out of date. We were given complimentary popodams. Now, you can draw your own conclusions, but I feel this is very dishonest. It may have been a genuine mistake, but I wouldn't be surprised if you could see the same menu in the window right now. Perhaps I'm too cynical.
I had a spicy aubergine dish for main, with rice and bread. It was very tasty, but much too small, and rather expensive.
I left feeling ripped-off and not full. Not recommended.
