EDA Turkish Restaurant

Dine with a sea view at the traditional Turkish Restaurant EDA at 51 High Street, Kirkcaldy.

Our Brand Ambassador made a recent visit to EDA restaurant on the High Street and had a great meal.  Here is her short review but why don’t you get along to try it out for yourselves!

Entering, the decor is traditional and the cooking hub is the huge indoor barbecue which dominates the rear of the restaurant and yet, interestingly there isn’t so much as a whiff of smoke.

Food is cooked to order in front of your eyes on the grill/bbq by the fast handed, expert chefs and all the main courses come with rice and vegetables and are a substantial size.

The Starters consist of hot and cold choices as well as mezze platters. The choices cover vegetarian, seafood, chicken, lamb and steaks in shish, kofte and casserole forms.

The King Prawns were enormous and cooked to perfection and the spicy sausage was just that but not too hot.  The chicken and aubergine kebab had lots of flavour and textures and different sauce accompaniments to experiment with. The lamb shish was moist and tender, it was served with a subtle smoky aubergine and yogurt sauce, both were very tasty but not overpowering or spicy, the spice was ‘on the side’ if you wanted it, in the form a chilli sauce.

The extra large platter was being delivered to our neighbouring table – it looked ideal to share with friends at least 3 or more of them!

And if you have any room left for a pudding the menu features baked rice pudding and baclava as well as other Turkish favourites but we only managed a Turkish Tea and a Turkish Coffee with Turkish delight.

The service is excellent, staff are attentive without being over the top but seem to be there just when you need them. They are knowledgeable about the menu and happy to give you advice if you don’t know what to choose.  No wonder it’s a restaurant that’s being talked about in town.
