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 meal, great staff and nice environment. The pre theatre menu is perfect for Playhouse visits and the price is very reasonable by Edinburgh standards.

    Good range on menu for diet intolerances (lactose, vegan), but also good range for friends who don't have intolerances. Mezze, tapas options if you don't want a big plateful. Tasty and nicely cooked. Very good service, although it was quiet the day I was there. BYOB, so excellent if you like to chose your own wines.

    Great place for a delicious mediterranean food. We had Pre-Theatre Deal (3 mezze for £14.95 per person) and a dessert. Everything was very well cooked, just the right sized portions, that leave you nicely fool, but not feeling like you're going to get a heart attack. All staff were very friendly and professional. The locationis perfect if you're heading to the show in Playhouse afterwards. Gave 3*for ambience only because there was a couple of young lads eating couple of tables away, who were also listening/watching (?) something on their mobile phones. Also, can't say much about drinks, because we only had water.
