We came there to eat the place looked ok, small and old style, the woman was talking in Cantonese to the chef and saying make some food to those idiots. Even that we had people that can speak in Cantonese but I think she really...More

The food was okej, but the kebab didn't seem fresh at all ans I didn't like the taste of it. But then again im used to swedish kebab and this seemed to be kind of a diferent style kebab.

We ate at this restaurant and found a good variety of tasty food. The waiting staff were slightly intrusive by constantly hovering nearby, not sure if it is management policy. We prefer to be able to eat our food and then to attract the attention...More

The food was bland and vastly more expensive than the quality would suggest, the waiting staff were rude and couldn't explain the contents of the ambiguously titled dishes which meant ordering was a complete nightmare- though I imagine quite funny after a few drinks.

Looking for something different and not to expensive whilst having 90 minutes between Fringe performances we stumbled across this small eatery. As the place was packed (approx. 20 seats) I assumed that ‘if it is good enough for them, it will be good enough for...More

For a quick bite of lunch this is a really good choice. Completely unpretentious and quite small, you can get a good variety of Chinese dishes with fast though not overly friendly service. I like it.

We stopped in here as it was one of the closest things to the hotel and we'd been travelling for 36 hours. It was fine for that, but don't go out of your way to eat here. Most of the patrons seemed to be thoroughly...More

The lady that took our order seemed pissed off with every single 'extra' thing we ordered. For example, I wanted to get the milk tea on the menu and when I asked, she simply sighed and walked away. I did get my order but I...More

If you know what you want then what you have is good value home from an excellent chef. Yes it's cramped and the middle aged owner and chef are surly but the waiting staff are pleasant and occasionally helpful. The noodle soups are great especially...More

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
