Visited for dinner with family. First time visit. Impressed from start to finish. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was first rate - and really tasted wonderful. We ordered more than we could eat but they provided boxes for taking away left overs which was a nice touch. Nothing to fault. Definitely the best Chinese restaurant we have visited in the UK and will be a regular whenever we are in Edinburgh. Price was very reasonable. Lots of parking available, both on the road outside and in the car park below where there is a Chinese supermarket - also excellent.

Been here quite a few times
Excellent staff/service, excellent food, can't fault it
We always go for the mixed starter which gives variety and is always really tasty
My husband loves the Singapore Rice Noodles and the Chilli Beef or Chicken is always a winner

Mediocre food. The squid main dish seemed to be 45% onions, 45% pak choi and 10% squid. Same for chicken and beef. But the worst thing was the rice. The fried rice was the parboiled type like Uncle Ben's or any supermarket microwave rice. This is ridiculous in a Chinese restaurant! You can tell by the funny taste it has, and it was also completely non-sticky, so you can't eat it with chopsticks. Also we were only offered the European Chinese menu; I only discovered later that there is a much more interesting authentic Chinese one! Dim Sum were OK but almost certainly ready-made deep frozen.

We bit more expensive than we normally pay for a Chinese meal, but it was worth it. Beautiful, fresh, tasty dishes, served by extremely polite and helpful staff. Great dining experience.

Went with my Mum & Dad and had an enjoyable experience. Started off with King Prawn dumplings which were very good. Three main courses with soft noodles,udon noodles and fried rice all really good. Decent wine list with sensible prices. Friendly and attentive service and we took away some food that was left in a container. One of the best chinese restaurants in Edinburgh
