Kampung Ali, Edinburgh

At first glance Kampung Ali doesn't look like much. It's a big room with an Italian fresco ceiling which clashes quite harshly with a flashing skyline of Kuala Lumpur across one wall. It feels a wee bit like you have just wandered into a mis-matched diner.

But ignore that. Let's talk about the food. Oh the food! There was a cold chill in the air this week and I was craving tasty comfort food... a perfect excuse to go out for Malaysian.


The menu is mainly noodle and rice based dishes, all at totally reasonable prices. We went for the following:


Roti cenai, probably my favourite thing on the menu! 


Craig's dish was the Vegetarian Mee Goreng, which was very hot, but SUPER-tasty (Craig's words). 

Sorry for the iphone photos! It was an impromptu visit.
& I went for the chicken curry noodle. This used to be a bit bony (tasty but you had to be careful), but they've recently changed the menu so it is bone-free! 

For two starters, two mains and two drinks the bill came to £24. What a bargain. 

Kampung Ali is on 97 - 101 Fountainbridge (just round the corner from Lothian Road).  

The family also run a sister restaurant, Kampong Ah Lee, on 28 Clerk Street. It's teeny-tiny (you might be asked to share tables!) but it is also lovely. Perfect for all Edinburgh Uni students too!
