Brilliant location (and very easily accessible), really enjoyed the food and drinks (the cocktails were spot on!). Would recommend attending to annoying looking for a delicious meal in Edinburgh.

We went for lunch which was excellent value! Three courses for £16. Food was excellent quality and all three courses were delicious, portions were a good size. The waitress we had was lovely, attentive and friendly! Would come back for sure!

We had a lovely meal here. We were lucky enough to have a table by the window. The tasting menu with paired drinks was interesting and really well thought out, the service was impeccable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, and I will definitely be back!

I don't usually leave reviews but I was very impressed with Taisteal. The food was excellent. The staff were friendly. We were particularly impressed that they were able to adapt all of the main meals to suit a member of our party who has a nut allergy. They even brought her special bread so that she could try the dip that came before the meal. We will definitely be returning!

My 2 lady guests were very pleased with the duck from the a la carte menu; I tried the Market Menu but was most disappointed. The overly 'pulled' lamb in pastry ( in lieu of the Thai fishcake) with an odd brown sauce was just acceptable.The pollock seemed far from fresh and the accompanying arancini seemed to contain mashed potato rather than rice. I've had better lunches from you before! The young girl serving was pleasant and cheerful.

My husband and I had been here several months ago and thoroughly enjoyed it, that I booked a table for my brother's birthday which was on the 14th July. We were really excited about coming here. We received the menus but I'd wanted the tasting menu, which I had to ask for. There was 4 of us and two of us wanted the tasting menu. The waitress (same one we saw at our meal last time) said it was fine, having checked with the chef and one main (duck)was to be exchanged for the pork belly (this was my brother's order). The order was taken and we proceeded to enjoy the atmosphere only for another waitress to come over and tell us that we couldn't have what we had ordered despite it being all checked and agreed in the first place. We ALL had to have the tasting menu, my husband did not eat the first two courses because they were not something he liked to eat (hence why he did not choose the tasting menu in the first place). My husband also wished to exchange the duck for the pork belly as well. A waiter came to collect the starter away and he asked if it had been ok, my husband explained the whole situation and he seemed confused and clearly not been told what had happened. The mains then arrived, my brother received the duck when he should have had the pork belly, but by this point we were fed up with all this hassle and would have been unfair on my brother to wait longer for his correct main. Just before the main, I noticed the first waitress dash off having presumably finished work. We also saw the chefs leaving at the end of our meal, having couldn't cared less how our meal went. Unfortunately my husband has also been ill since Sunday morning, and he was the only one that had the pork belly and is still recovering. Whether this is connected, I am not sure. Sadly, I don't think we will be returning thanks to the poor communication between you and your staff. I had been pleased to discover this place, after having dined at high profile places such as Martin Wishart, Tom Kitchin, Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles, and had likened the quality and taste of your meals to those places but the lack of service quality/communication is not there.

Seriously - you guys impressed us so much. The service was so cheery and friendly, and helpful when I couldn't pick what to have for my main course. Much, much friendlier service than most higher end options in Edinburgh and this made a huge difference to our time spent in the restaurant. The food was interesting, unusual, and presented well. The portion sizes were great, perhaps slightly bigger than I was expecting. The peanut butter baked alaska was yummy, and that's coming from someone without much of a sweet tooth. Overall, a great little experience and a super way to spend an anniversary evening. Thanks again!

We had an excellent meal on the market menu, amazing value at £16 for three courses. We will definitely be back to try the full menu. We loved the Asian influence on the dishes and it was a great atmosphere in the heart of Stockbridge.
