As the sun goes down, the bars, theaters and clubs of Edinburgh begin to fill with happy revelers all looking to have a memorable night out. As people party into the night there is great demand for tasty snacks and more substantial repasts. During the month of August the city welcomes an increased number of visitors as the Edinburgh Festival gets underway and many of these restaurants and takeaways extend their opening hours.
After, or during, a night drinking with friends a curry can be just the thing to revive flagging spirits and perhaps even soak up some of the alcohol. There are some great curry houses in Edinburgh and many of them are open late. If you are in the center of town, the ever popular Indian Takeaway Kebab Mahal is open until 2am.
Many of the city's Italian restaurants are open late. The pick of the bunch is Civerinos in the Old Town which serves mouthwatering street food until 1am in the morning.
Or perhaps you're looking for a simpler pleasure. After a night on the tiles, who can resist the charms of a classic fish and chip shop? The Central Takeaway is open until 3am and their deep fried delights are very popular with residents and tourists alike.
