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

Tucked away halfway along Dalmeny Street just off Leith Walk is the Stack Dim Sum restaurant. The unpreposessing exterior shouldn't put you off, this place is a great find. It's a small cafe style establishment that is probably full if there are thirty people in it! We ordered various dim sum dishes which were all plainly cooked to order and... More

Having seen some really good reviews for this place and discovering it was a short ten minute walk from our house, we decided to check it out. Nice to see a good selection of different dumplings, and more traditional dishes. For the price I thought the food was a bit basic and the portions a bit small, but the general... More
