Set in the vibrant city of Edinburgh, Pomegranate restaurant is nestled at the top of Leith Walk. Inspired by the kitchens of the Middle East and North Africa, Pomegranate also offers a secluded decking area to enjoy the relaxing flavours of shisha.

Paying homage to the cuisine of countries like Lebanon and Morocco, the Pomegranate menu offers colourful sharing-style dishes and traditional main courses. Hot and cold mezze dishes include seasoned mince lamb, mixed with sultanas and encased in crushed rice, whilst the mains include succulent chicken breast, marinated in tomatoes and turmeric with a hint of green chilli & parsley.

Drawing on influence from the Middle East, the warm ambience of Pomegranate in Edinburgh is enhanced by vibrant hanging lanterns and cosy Arabic-style cushions. Lounge in the confines of the private terrace, and choose from an array of non-alcoholic wines and beers, or traditional Arabic coffee and cha.

Pomegranate in Leith is only a 10-minute walk from Edinburgh Rail Station.

    EXCELLENT food, middle eastern "tapas" at it's best! BYOB with a minimum 30p charge for recycling and a great Syrian Refugee scheme to donate £1 per head but optional...

    We had an awesome evening in the Arabic Room for a birthday celebration. The food was amazing and the private room is something a bit special and perfect for a big group.

    This was my second visit to Pomegranate and again wasn't disappointed. Food was beautiful and served quickly. The Pomegranate rice was very tasty and complemented the dishes we ate. The staff were attentive though there was language difficulties when I tried to order soda and lime. Was easier to stick with the water provided. I'm local so my accent is not unusual. Will definitely visit again especially for the Rose icecream.
