Fabulous home made seitan

Fabulous service and knowledgeable staff. Energy is great in this lovely place. Food is delicious with good prices. Last came 3 years ago on a trip from London and we booked to come again.

Buffalo wings that will make your taste buds dance!

It's been some years since I had buffalo wings, I always enjoyed the spicy, savory and foremost tangy taste, once in Stockholm at "Dirty vegan", a restaurant that is not longer there I had "buffalo wings", and they were amazing! I have been looking for them ever since and this is where my search ended! Super duper satisfying and tasty! Will definitely come back for them!

Also I had the Philly cheesesteak dirty fries that was superb but the wings got my flying!

Pros: Cozy atmosphere

Quirky bar/restaurant, amazing food

We loved this quirky bar with its ceiling of teddy bears! We were seated before our reservation which was amazing of them.
One of us ordered the Chipotle mac and cheese and the other had crispy oyster mushrooms, collared greens and fries. The longer we were there, the busier it got which was great to see

Pros: Delicious and tasty

Cons: Long wait for the bill

Delicious vegan junk food!

I was in food heaven here. Friendly staff in a chilled out atmosphere. With an extensive vegan menu I was spoilt for choice. I opted for the philly cheesesteak fries, tortilla chips woth chipotle sauce and battered oyster mushrooms. Very comforting and delicious.

A feel-good place!

The Lucky Pig-Paradise Palms is a restaurant where everyone is welcome and it truly feels like that. It is very relaxed and the staff are down to earth and welcoming.
The food they offer is rather American and this style of cuisine is not my favourite, but I still liked it very much, which shows how awesome it really is!
My husband and I shared the Philly Cheesesteak Fries, the collard greens, the corn ribs and the frickles between us, and we enjoyed everything.

Great bar!!

I loved the vibe of this place. Friendly staff, great decor and music, LGBTQ space. And great drinks! Food was forgettable, but I will forgive that as it fit the bill for late night eats and everything else was so great.

Pros: Vibe, Staff, Drinks

Cons: Food was a little bland

Excellent vegan food, drinks and atmosphere

The food is delicious (especially the chipotle Mac n cheese), loved the vegan pina colada and the music was great too. Highly recommend, this was my go-to evening hangout spot while visiting Edinburgh😄

Amazing seitan

They've definitely gone down the junk food route but it's 100% worth it. The loaded fries and chicken burger were incredible. Really good atmosphere and vibe.

Great vibes nice food

We had one main and two sides which we shares, and were all very tasty and plenty. We had the Philly cheesesteak fries and on the side both the buffalo cauliflower and the blue maize chips. They have two areas inside, one for booked tables and one for walk in which were very cosy and the staff is extremely friendly. Order at the counter. The only oddity is that they have a drink on the menu that is marked as not suitable for vegetarians or vegans, while they are otherwise completely vegetarian.

Pros: Very cosy and relax atmosphere, Tasty food, Very friendly staff

Cons: Non-veg drink on menu

Boring food - Great Wibe

I personally did not like the food here, The Mac n cheese was bland and boring. The ch*ck Burger patty vas okay, but the dressing tasted only of very strong garlic and The bun was dry. The best i can say about the food is that the chips were really crispy.

The staff is friendly and The cocktails were good. The Wibe is like a chill tiki night club and I could absolutely hang out here on a night out but i would skip the food.

Pros: Cocktails , Hbtqi friendly

Cons: Food, Expensive

delicious, lovely atmosphere and kind staff.
we were spoilt for choice so we got several sides to share, everything was delicious! my favourite was probably the cauliflower.
great cocktails too! and good weekday deals, i can’t quite remember but i think it was something like certain cocktails for £7 monday-wednesday?

I keep on coming

I've been to Paradise Palms a decent number of times, and I'll be visiting again at least a decent number more!

The food is delightful, tasty, and interesting (even the basic burger!). Staff are super friendly and accommodating, and the decor is wonderful - such a nice vibe.

It was a little chilly for my liking, although they'd only just opened for the day when we arrived.

Can't fault the place for anything really, 5* top notch 👍

Pros: Everything vegan!, Amazing tastes, Interesting choices

Cons: A wee bit cold

A lovely bar with amazing food.

I love this restaurant, it is quirky with a lovely vibe. Staff are friendly and are helpful. The food is delicious and the menu offers light bites and heavier meals. My only issue is offering to serve dairy.

Pros: The menu is vegan, Lovely staff, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Pricey, Serves dairy on request, Not enough healthy options

Would be perfect if vegan!

For some reason, the only non-vegan item is cheese and if you ask to add cheese, the default is the non vegan one! Would be perfect if it was just a 100% vegan kitchen! The buffalo cauliflower (or buffalo chicken special) is REALLY GOOD!!! £7 cocktails Mon-Wed.
