I'm sorry that we had turned you away. We were actually closed for a Private Function and had a sign hung up at the door that night. The few tables that were empty were booked tables. Again, really sorry for the misunderstanding.

Great if you book in advance. Takeaways ok too but if things get busy don't expect them to pick up the phone to let you know, it just rings out. Food is usually on the ok side. Not great but by no means the worst...More

Xanadu Chinese Restaurant is located in Edinburgh's Dalziel place, and offers delicious and authentic Cantonese cuisine. The dining room – with sky blue walls, crisp white linen tablecloths and dark wooden Oriental furniture – has a happy and vibrant atmosphere and is always busy with a young, sophisticated crowd. Xanadu's menu, created by experienced chef and restaurateur Colin Chiu, features classic Chinese dishes such as deep fried fillet of fish served with pears, pine seeds and sweet and sour sauce; fillet of beef Cantonese style served on a sizzling platter; and Xanadu's signature traditional Peking duck and Lobster Noodles with ginger and spring onions.
