Being a burrito fan I have to say Burrito and shake is an utter abomination and the quicker they shut down the better. Tasteless crap. Like, imagine taking the most flavoursome delight you can find and then replacing all of that with ****ing cardboard.

 

Its ****ing offensive. Seems like there is zero desire to provide quality food, they just want your money. Robbing *******s.

 

One and only time I've left a food review. It bothered me that much. *****.  

i was in edinburgh for one of the autumn tests last year and a friend was looking to book a place to eat. He had a look at this, i'm glad the others with us said to look at a thai place.

It was when I lived in Fountainbridge in the early 90s. A night out wasn't complete without a large doner from Topkapi!

 

I lived on the east side of the city so rarely had cause to venture that way after a sesh.  I did however manage to navigate myself to that purveyor of late night food, where a most satisfying shish kebab was had on both occasions.  Oooooh!

Spicey Bites Dundee street

Went for a Kebab after a game on the way home and shop was surprisingly empty apart from a girl outside on her phone.

Waiting for my order i saw the guys check on her hamburger in the Pizza oven and dropped it on the floor, looked at each other glanced at me then picked it up and slipped it back in the tray.

I know i should have said something but i was pissed and tired and to be honest the Kebab was alright.

Years ago down working near Trinity Academy we noticed a new take away shop open at lunchtime in we went purused the menu and as i was first i chose the burgers and chips.

Off she went holding her child and lit a match to light the gas under the chip pan on the gas cooker in the back shop.

Agreed.

 

My arsehole pals think it’s great too. Idiots.

 

Illegal Jacks is the best I’ve had in the UK since Chipotle in the States.

Can't remember what it was called, a vegetarian Indian restaurant that was on the bridges. Think it was just along from where watties is/was, this was over 20 years ago. They done an all you could eat buffet for lunch. To increase profits all, the pakoras were made with some amount of flour in them so they would fill you up quicker. I managed 2 but was getting the serious boke, as was the rest of our crowd of 6.

Had one of the worst currys ever from Jaflong. Greasy, tasteless muck. Zero care put into it, massive chunks of onion and tomatoes that they seemingly couldn't be arsed chopping up properly.

Glad I don't live in Edinburgh now but when I was there I once tried an Indian that was straight out of a pataks jar.

 

It's now called Asha's in Corstorphine, wasn't sure what it was called before but it was absolutely disgusting.

 

The only positive about now living in Airdrie is that it has absolutely banging takeaways. There's a few that are magic.

Are you slagging Edinburgh’s food offerings by using a comparison with Airdrie?

As in, the Airdrie? The one outside Glasgow? That one? Surely not?! :lol:

Given that Glaswegian and even English football fans have been known to gleefully chant a certain song involving a chicken supper, I'd say no, it's not exclusive to Edinburgh.

I would not be surprised if a lot of places apply the five second rule.  

 

From what I heard (at least in the past), a certain branch of a well known pizza restaurant done this.

I usually have an iron stomach, but grant Murray's subway sandwiches, also dalkeith, made me Ill.

 

Dirty Hibs ****. 

 

One of my mates swears by Itihaas, reckons it's the best Indian in the whole of Scotland and brags about their awards and stuff, he keeps trying to get me to go as well, think I'll politely decline now :lol: 

 

There's chippy in Inverkeithing, I forget the name but it's just up the hill off the main street, it's utterly disgusting, I really can't see that staying open long like, not when the main chippy in the town is so good.

Oh it tastes pretty good. However, my mum and brother both got food poisoning there and also my mum's next door neighbour. I live along the road and pass the kitchen almost every day, saw some wifey coming out with the end of a lit cigarette hanging from her mouth, last year.

Aye. Tell your mate the Bombay lounge is better. At least, I don't know anyone to spew after eating there. The vindaloo and green chilli lamb are excellent.

It's a good point - shitholes often have good takeaways. I think it's because the owners would get battered (!) otherwise.

My Dad is from Coatbridge and all his family still lives around there. Had plenty from the area, and they’re all mediocre/average.

Och mate I am maybe generalizing as didn't have many takeaways when I stayed in Edinburgh (apart from the Victoria Chinese in Restalrig which to this day has never been bettered).

 

Let me know next you order takeaway and will give you somewhere banging. 

 

P.s what part of Coatbridge. Working in Townhead the now delivering a football programme, errrrrmm severe lack of talent in that particular area and thought it would be the opposite.

Going back 20 years, there was a Chinese takeaway next to the Carrick Knowe Inn. Got a sweet & sour chicken which turned out to be a glow in the dark msg gloop poured on top of some chicken pieces. Vile.

Never been, but pass it frequently on a Saturday night if coming back from an away day or a Friday after work.

 

The display cabinets are full of food from about 4-5pm onwards. Don't know if it's genuinely that busy that they need to do this, or if they're just to lazy to cook fresh on order. Wouldn't fancy eating something that's sat for hours anyway.

Haven't had a Jubilee for a long time but my uncle lived in Wardieburn when I was wee so used to get one frequently in the late 90's. Shame that they're closing.

 

Had Javits a couple of times, and seems to be very popular in the area, but not a patch on the Jubilee.
