When restaurants hit their groove, they have a real buzz about them.
And right now, few are buzzier than the recently re-launched Turnip & Enjoy in the West End.
From Facebook to 5pm via TripAdvisor and newspapers like the Sunday Herald, the family-run restaurant on the Great Western Road is being heaped with rave reviews and glowing comments.
Today’s Big Deal is a great way to catch the buzz and see why so many people are shouting about Turnip & Enjoy.
In the Sunday Herald, Joanna Blythmann wrote that ‘the food shows care and effort. No dish has not had some thought and attention lavished on it.’
The restaurant says that it simply aims to offer ‘Exciting contemporary Scottish cooking, all in an atmosphere of warmth and hospitality.’
Sounds good to us.
