Tigerlily New Town, Edinburgh

British, Modern, Pan-Asian

6 reviews

When Tigerlily launched in 2006, it arguably kick started the renaissance of George Street as the capital's most fashionable area for eating and drinking. A 2015 refurbishment ensured that the boutique hotel, bar and restaurant stays at the head of the pack. With mirrored walls, chandeliers, clever lighting and several different spaces, the decor of the dining areas helps make for a memorable meal. An extensive drinks list with innovative cocktails plus much sought after pavement terrace tables all add to Tigerlily's undoubted appeal.

    Food is excellent

    We were a group of 8 and didn't order any starters so our wait for the main meal was quite long but worth waiting for. We were given free spicy garlic bread while we were waiting and it was delicious. Food was freshly prepared and very tasty and spiced just the right amount. The desserts were also good but quite pricey. It is BYOB no corkage so good value. We will definitely be returning.

    Nice Hotel, Pity about the Food

    The dining area is large “dressed” as only professionals can do it but it was empty and so no atmosphere. It was only 4pm and it was beginning to fill up as we left. We were seated at a table overlooking Princes Street and we enjoyed watching the world go by. Shouldn’t really complain. The deal was £22 for 2 main courses and 2 glasses of wine. However, whatever the cost, the food should be good. The salad, chips and unusual croquet were good but the burger was dry as a bone and I struggled with it. Waitress was lovely and nicely reminded us of the 2 hour deadline. Not sure about returning. Too many other choices in Edinburgh.
