Hanam's: "Excellent" Hanam's Tip by iaint

Hanam's, Edinburgh: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Had a great lunch in here. Dolma (stuffed vine leaves) to start, then kebab, washed down with low alcohol cider.

£16, but they do have a £9 lunchtime special.

Place is Iranian/Kurdish.

Can't comment on the authenticity of the food, but the menu looked very good and what I had was faultless.

Favorite Dish: Chili gosht kebab - spicy minced lamb kebab (Kurdish style), served with pitta bread, salad, yoghourt and hot apricot sauce! Yummee - never had a sauce like that before - whole apricots in it.

Address: 3 Johnston Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2PW
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: It is at the top of the Royal Mile, where the street branches close to the castle. The restaurant is to the left before you head up to the castle.
