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.

We have been going to this restaurent for years, celebrating school achievements and all birthdays ( they wouldn't be the same anywhere else!) we go on Sundays for lunch time Dim Sum and it is always fabulous. They are very helpful if you haven't been before and they have a great variety of all the staple Dim Sum dishes. But... More

Been to this restaurant many times over the years and have never had a bad experience or a meal. If you want authenticity, then this is the only place to visit. If you intend to go for lunch, especially on a Sunday, I advise you book in advance. You can also pop down to the Chinese supermarket after your meal,... More

As my title says great dim sum but other food average and over priced. Duck starter was unfortunately cold. Restaurant is large and open and doesn't feel very comfortable because of the vast space especially when it was so quiet the night we were eating.

I want to eat here, I really do! Last week we walked 2.5 miles along the canal so we could enjoy the dim sum which they are apparently known for. When we arrived it was closed for a private event and would be the following day as well. We were annoyed, but we hadn't checked the website to make sure... More

Best dim sum in Edinburgh. The place looks nice and cosy inside. Great place to eat and shop (There is a Chinese shop under restaurant)

great food and selection. Patronized by many in the Chinese community. I even saw a busload of Chinese tourists come in for lunch. Business lunch is great value at just over £8 for three courses. They do take away also but don't deliver. There is a car park but on street parking also

Dim sum in this restaurant is second to none, absolutely fantastic food. Lunch for dim sum or dinner equally excellent. The staff are brilliant as well and happy to have a laugh with you as well. And for those having fun with Pokemon go, this is a poke stop

Thank loobylo
