The Prestonfield Rhubarb
restaurant is James Thomson's latest destination restaurant - and the most opulent to date!
Wee Buddha is a wee hidden gem in Jamaica Street (off Howe Street) in Edinburgh's New Town. The chef/owner Ken Chan's love of food is apparent in the Asian tapas dishes he prepares which taste fresh, are full of flavor and simply delicious - and most can be prepared as a vegetarian option.
The Buddha may be Wee, but the choice of drinks certainly isn't - cocktails are a specialty but if that's not your thing, there is a wide range of spirits, craft beers (including our own Wee Buddha beer) and an excellent wine list to suit most tastes.Phone:0131 538 1215
