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

Ok, over the years I have visited this restaurant a number of times and never got round to reviewing. Amazing.........fresh, hot, reasonable and consistently good. 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. Kung Po chicken... More

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

The food is excellent-- I highly recommend the garlic pepper chicken and the special noodles. We were well looked after by our waitress and she was very informative about each dish. She made some excellent suggestions. We really enjoyed ourselves in the dining room, though it seems to mostly do take-out business. Highly recommended!

Small restaurant which offers an extensive menu. The food is excellent as is the friendly and personal service. Bring your own bottle.
