The food was great - a good range of dim sum. Vegetarian is a little limited but you can still have a meal. You may have to ask for extras like soy sauce. Would have given 5 stars if the service had been more welcoming

Great little restaurant, top notch food. Service was efficient and unobtrusive. If you like proper dim sum from people who know what they are doing, this is where to go in Edinburgh. If you need a red carpet rolled out for you and can only enjoy seriously good food when seated in a place where they've blown all the budget... More

This is not the typical Dim Sum restaurant we're used with wait staff bringing carts of options around. At Stack, you order from a menu and they make it fresh, and they make it well. Very good food, although fewer options than many places we've been. Staff were friendly and service was pretty good. This is not a large restaurant,... More

Ate here for the first time at the weekend and was blown away. The food is really great with plenty of choice. Other people have noted that the atmosphere can be a little frosty - although we had a somewhat unwelcome arrival we found that the service was pleasant. I'll definitely eat here again soon!

Nice people, unassuming little room, inexpensive, good dim sum, both fried and steamed. Three portions should do you! Lots of Chinese folk in, always a good sign!

I've been here twice now and each time have enjoyed everything. I'm vegetarian but eat fish and there are dishes that are available for me. I highly recommend. The service is swift and efficient.

I went with a group of friends and found this place was worth the travel to get there. We order a quarter of the menu and the dishes were brought out as they were prepared. The owner was the one in the kitchen cooking and found it quite flavorful. I only gave it 4 out of 5 because the porridge... More

Great Dim Sum bar, great menu, great choice and great price! It always leaves you wanting more even if you are full! The premises are humble and simple but clean, the service is fast and efficient and kids are always welcome. Food is always fresh and scrumptious. Warning though this place is for real foodies who like quality, authentic culinary... More
