This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Chicken restaurants have become a big deal over the last few years and with the notable success of one particular chain, local restaurateurs are looking to get in on the action. Zuhus is a venture located on South Bridge, from the family responsible for Kebabish in Dalry. The interior has a clean, stylish and spacious seating area with a room next door for cooking and placing your order. As expected, chicken dominates the menu, but there are also burgers, pittas and wraps with a Mediterranean influence. Their speciality peri peri chicken comes in four heats on the spiceometer – daredevil, hooting hot, marvellous medium or mellow mild. A sharing platter offers one or two whole chickens and a choice of sides. Choose from sweet potato fries (with the option of peri peri powder), corn on the cob, coleslaw or homemade garlic bread. With a mixed clientele of students, regulars and passers-by, this is really good chicken spiced to your liking.
