This place is amazing, staff friendly and helpful, food freshly cooked and piping hot, it must be good because bus loads of Chinese people eat he Really! I always eat where the restaurant is full of nationals to that cuisine.

Food and service good, friendly helpful staff and reasonably priced meals. Always a good sign when you see Chinese families dining in Chinese restaurants. Its a spacious barn of a place which I wouldn't describe as cosy but ideal if you want to view other diners and see what they are ordering. There is a pleasant atmosphere in the place.... More

Having lived in Hong Kong we can honestly say that this is he best dim sum in Edinburgh. We visit twice a month and can highly recommend the steamed dumplings and turnip cake. Excellent meals and happy times spent here.

We come here quite often and found that the food quality fluctuate a lot , sometimes perfect , sometimes ok. (maybe they hire part-time moody chef?) but nothing you can complain for such a reasonable price and food portion. Service ...sometimes good sometimes bad depends on waitress/waiter.. anyway... worth going if you like HongKong/Cantonese food

Go for the dim sum menu, it's the best. And the pork belly and fried noodles dish is to die for! It's a great place for big family meals too - order lots of dishes to share :)

The restaurant was very busy with a pleasant buzz. Food was tasty and beautifully presented, we decided to go for the non standard menu.

Visited with a colleague for lunch. The restaurant has a large and spacious interior. We ate from the set lunch menu which is very westernized and had some spring rolls and sweet and sour chicken hong kong style. The cost was £8.90 a head and also included ice cream or banana fritter. Our meal was excellent. The service was good.... More

I can't find a single fault. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The premises are attractive and inviting and the food was amazing. Served quickly and perfectly cooked. The waiter was happy to explain things and make recommendations. You absolutely MUST try this place.
