“best Chinese food ever eaten”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

we ate here based purely on the TA reviews. thank you TA as this place was a fantastic find. the place is very nice and more upmarket looks wise than the normal Chinese restaurant. the food was simply incredible and easily the nicest we've ever had. this is saying something as we love Chinese food and eat it often. weve also eaten in plenty of named restaurants in manchester's china town and a few times in London. the staff were really attentive without being over bearing and just added to the overall feeling that this is a fantastic restaurant. when we return to Edinburgh we will definitely eat here again. do yourself a favour and pay them a visit.

“Small, intimate restaurant with lovely food.”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

We went on a Monday but it is still advisable to book ahead as this restaurant is always busy. I does not have many covers but this means that the food is fresh and hot. The Set menu gives a good selection of fish and meat and has some interesting items. I particularly liked the monkfish.
