We have waited an hour for the main course. All food had the same taste and the same tin, starchy sauce with tasteless noodels were not homemade.

Visited on a Friday evening. Arrived at 6pm and the restaurant soon filled up. Vegetarian Singapore noodles full of flavour. Spiced and salted crispy shredded chicken was devine and the chicken in blackbean sauce equally tasty. Very nice evening. Would definitely return.

The wife and I made our visit here while on a short break. The food was lovely and the service was prompt and friendly even when the restaurant was busy. Would highly recommend this place if it’s a Chinese you are out for.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
