I can see why people like this place. You can pile you plate with as much as you can eat, everything from chips to dumplings. And people do. Plates and knives and forks tells it all. This is a fast food school dinners type place. Everything in containers kept hot and changed when they run out which could be hours? The point about Chinese for me is that it's freshly cooked and you have a bowl and chopsticks and you don't eat a ton of things all mushed up together. The staff looked weary.
The puddings were awful, sweet junk food. Not Chinese. Won't go back

From the moment you enter the China Red buffet restaurant in Edinburgh you realized the right choice was made for lunch. Very clean and colourful. You’re greeted with a smile and felt they won’t you to experience their cuisine.
The select of food was enormous, great variety. We attempted to it all, but failed. The price was reasonable, three ate (lots) and paid £28.
I recommend the Chine Red restaurant.
