    Another great meal tonight, although they maybe seemed a bit short staffed tonight.
    Unsure of the reasoning (Covid????) but they're definitely short staffed out front as well as in the kitchen. Someone posted as much on the local FB group after a delivery from their online takeaway (Abida) was very late.
    Hopefully they don't attract to many poor reviews as their food and service has always been excellent for me.

    Iíve resorted to collecting from them now. Only a few mins to Phrana usually ready when I get there.

    I got a refund for my order from them a couple of months ago, it was so late, it was barely warm when I got it. Disappointing but theyíre usually good, used them again since and they delivered fine.

    One of the comments on that post suggested that the deliveries no longer come from the branch thatís now Prana - they come from the Davidsons Mains branch apparently. Which would figure as Iíve never seen a delivery driver when Iíve been in Prana. You can definitely still collect from there though.

    I almost replied to that, you can definitely collect from Prana. Unsure if the online system is smart enough to divide the orders between this alleged kitchen in Blackhall & Corstorphine???

    Had lunch today at Gaucho - really because of the 25% season ticket discount. Went for the bottomless Sunday roast which was excellent, with fresh meat available on demand all the way through. After two hours we were stuffed, but didnít feel in any rush to leave. Would recommend!

    My new favourite place in Corstorphine. Sofia's which is a Lebanese restaurant. I think they have another place in town somewhere.

    Simple,tasty food with brilliant service. And great value too.

    Deliveries still come from Prana kitchen, drivers use the rear entrance.

    Try Topo La Bamba on Lothian road. Same sort of thing. Just as nice and probably cheaper. Also do a bucket of 4 beers for a tenner!

    Had my first Dishoom breakfast. Excellent. Recreated their Parsi omelette this morning.

    Son and girlfriend were there last week, said it was good but not excellent, the lamb in one of the curries let them down. Said he would try again though. I’ve only used the takeaway (Abida) from them so far and that was okay.
    I went to Prana last night and would agree with the good but not excellent review. Bit like most Corstorphine restaurants I've been to ( not been to Napole yet). Always disappointing when you can't get poppadoms of some sort at an Indian as well.

    The previous two Indians I've been to have been excellent though, Dishoom and Khai Khai ( Which is in Newcastle at the quayside for anyone that is down there).

    I'm back home this weekend for a wedding and have been tasked with booking dinner for Friday night... the rest of my mates forgetting that I've not lived in Scotland since 2014.

    It'll only be for 4 of us... obviously anything like Aizle, Timberyard, Fhior is all booked out at this stage; but does anyone have any recommendations of something fairly central, preferably not a chain, but that we might have a chance of getting into on Friday night?

    If the likes of Aizle etc is the kind of food youíre going for then you could look at Noto? Itís on Thistle Street and is owned by the same guy that owns Aizle. Itís very, very good.

    Looks class - can't get in on Friday evening though! Thanks for the recommendation, will try it next time I'm in town.

    TGI Fridays in Castle St. The burger was of poor quality. The wine was bottom shelf supermarket stuff and vastly overpriced.
    Other than that the atmosphere was manic. Our waitress was so wired she must have been on something. Actually I don't blame her.
    Every so often the staff grouped next to a table and sang a mental birthday song, presumably at the
    prior request of the customers.
    It's a family place. Kids were enjoying themselves.
    Never again!

    Went to TGI at Kinnaird Park in a largish group a few years back for my sons 16th. Worst meal ever. Some of the mains failed to arrive, other mistakes all over plus what did arrive was rotten.

    Never ever again.

    Everyone learns their lesson about TGI Fridays at some point!

    I don't mind TGI. The glazed chicken strip things are good.

    You know what you're getting and you pay in line with that I think. It's a place that's a little better and a little more expensive than Wetherspoons and others of a similar ilk, and cheaper/worse than other places.

    Individual stories about food not arriving etc aside obviously, they're just unfortunate instances.
