Everything was excellent. Might struggle with menu if you don't eat lamb.

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.

    Enjoyed our meal here . We had never eaten this type of cuisine before but it was a good experience. Some diners didn't know about the bring your own bottle element and I witnessed people nipping out to buy some wine.

    Excellent food and friendly service. Bring your own drinks a bonus too, with a Tesco express around the corner.

    Would recommend sticking to mezze,mains were fine, but too much of the one thing. Felt a little rushed by staff after finishing our meal, when we had nearly three quarters of an hour left on our pre theatre booking.

    Fantastic meal, we went for a selection of tapas. 6 tapas between 3 people and it was just the right amount. Very fast service and friendly staff.
