Hanam’s aims to bring you a real taste of this amazingly colourful region; not just through our delicious dishes! All our customers comment on what a friendly and welcoming atmosphere Jamal and his staff create!
So Jamal looks forward to welcoming you and making your Hanam’s dining experience a truly fun, unique & unforgettable one which will undoubtedly have you coming back for more!
Jamal and his family are the proud owners of Hanam’s, Edinburgh’s first and only truly authentic Kurdish & Middle East restaurant.
Food is very important to Kurdish people, it’s not just about eating when you’re hungry, but much more about the social aspect of dining together in large extended families and amongst friends.
It’s precisely this kind of atmosphere that Jamal desires to bring to Hanam’s, and to share with everyone some of the very special parts of Kurdish culture that all Kurds carry in their hearts, no matter where they are in the world!
Jamal and his Kurdish staff hope that you will enjoy the Hanam’s experience, a little insight into life in another culture!
Remember that there’s nothing Kurds like better than to show off their dancing skills, in fact, they say it’s in their blood and Jamal is no exception, so if you want to experience another fun side of Kurdish culture, make sure Jamal has his traditional costume on, a cloth to wave, a bit of music and encouragement… and off he goes!!! Feel free to join in!!!”
