Went here after work with a few colleagues and when we walked in we were a bit sceptical as it was pretty empty. Anyway we were hungry so gave it a try. I was not disappointed. Very quick service and the battered chicken was amazing!

Really horrible service! After we got the starters we had a 50 mins wait after which we had to remind them of our main course!!

When the main course arrived, the Chicken Schezuan dish was not cooked well at all and the sauce was very very bland.
The bill came to £98 for 3 people, and to be honest that is ridiculous for the service and the food that we got.

Coming from London, it was shocking to see such bad and late service, and they kept saying that they were busy and so it was late. Imagine a London restaurant saying that and on top of that the food was very very substandard.

DO NOT GO THERE AT ALL! Not great!

I love bringing friends to this restaurant, the menu is extremely varied - the food is consistently excellent and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is also nice and relaxed.

Although not a perfect experience, it was very good! Staff were friendly, restaurant was clean and welcoming. The food tasted amazing (chili and honey shredded chicken was particularly nice) all 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed it.

If going again, I'd order more rice as we didn't think the portions were big enough.

The prices are very reasonable (especially for Edinburgh).

Try to ignore the fish tank in the waiting room though, most depressed turtle I've ever seen and all the fish look almost dead...

Found this restaurant on trip advisor, so glad I did. The food atmosphere and decor all top class, cannot praise the attentive staff highly enough, the Singapore noodles were the best I’ve tasted, pity it’s just a weekend visit because if I was local it would be a favourite. Recommended if you fancy Chinese food whilst in Edinburgh.
