Having come to Edinburgh for a long weekend and walking over 10 miles today we returned to our guest house and looked for a local restaurant on trip advisor. This little place which only has around 7 tables came up just around the corner. I called and managed to book a table for around 2 hours later. We were greeted... More

As a student, I used to regularly eat at this simple restaurant over 30 years ago. It provided sit-in dining of takeaway type dishes (with no corkage bring your own bottle). And guess what - it still offers the same excellent food and service. Management has changed from the original family owners but it ticked all the boxes. A few... More

Restaurant is small but pleasant, The main meals was very nice, through if you want spicy you need to ask for it to be made extra spicy. The only issue was the Rib starter. Quite fatty and gristly small bones . The Beijing sauce wasn't brilliant I would have rated this 9/10 except we felt it only rated a 7/10... More

This restaurant is within walking distance of many B & B's situated in East Mayfield,(street) Newington (Edinburgh). Whilst it is very small in size, I found the meals freshly cooked and very tasty. The furnishing of the restaurant is not modern, it is very busy during most evenings. Beer and Wine is NOT AVAILABLE however 80 metres away is a... More

Have been a few times to sit in but this was my first take away. Either their standards have dropped massively in 6 months or the take away menu is completely different. Anyway I had a special fried rice which was inedible. the chicken slices on the top smelled off, it was full of tiny frozen shrimp (the veined kind)... More

King prawn and tomato, much lushishness, char sui pork with pickled ginger and pineapple, fresh and light, old boring chicken fried rice and curry sauce lifted to a new level of flavoursomeness.

Excellent Chinese restaurant. Can highly recommend for a sit down meal or a take away. Probably the best Chinese restaurant in Newington.

Utilising the finest and freshest local produce, every dish is prepared to order by the chef, in order to preserve the flavour and nutrition of these ingredients.
