A warm welcome always guaranteed. Absolutely fantastic as usual. Great food and great service. Lovely atmosphere and consistently brilliant. Would recommend highly. All at reasonable prices.
Absolutely first class food and service - We had a set dinner for 7 which was one of, if not the best, Chinese Meals I've ever had.
Having eaten at Chinatown many times before, I headed back and again was not let down. The staff and service were excellent, and the layout of restaurant was great. The food was delicious. Well worth the money.
Excellent food served by friendly staff in beautiful surroundings. Best Chinese restaurant in Edinburgh by far. Particularly love the spiced and salted shredded beef and the lemon chicken.
All 8 of us enjoyed a good meal and good service at China Town. However, the a la carte menu is huge so 6 of us ordered the set menu for 6 as an easier option. That way we got to taste several different dishes - my only criticism of this was that the amount of rice served to all 8 of us was definitely not equivalent to 8 individual portions. But the food was good, though not out of the ordinary, the set menu price seemed fairly reasonable, and the 2 who ordered separately from the a la carte menu also enjoyed their meal choices. We also consumed a few beers and 3 bottles of wine, so overall a good evening was had by all!
Table booked for 7pm which is when we sat down with menus, sat for over 30 mins, nobody came near to even take order for drinks, noticed people who were seated after us getting their orders taken so were on the verge of getting up and walking out, but managed to get the attention of female member of staff or perhaps owner/ manager who apologised and then came back 5 mins later, was only going to take our drinks order but we insisted she take our food order as well as felt she might never come back again. Once order was placed drink and food was served quickly and food was all delicious but experience was spoilt by the wait at the start and the feeling that we were being ignored while others were being served so wouldnt go back for this reason. Shame really as food was excellent.
Dining at the China Town restaurant was an excellent experience in every respect. The welcome was friendly, both from the very charming owners and from all of the other staff; and the service perfect - attentive without ever being intrusive. The food was superb - all very fresh and delicious - and in very generous portions; and the wine list is well-chosen to complement Chinese food and is very reasonably priced. I would recommend this restaurant, whether for a casual meal or for a special occasion, very highly indeed.
Fantastic food and service can't recommend highly enough. We had the chicken satay starter and the chicken and sweetcorn soup and the sizzling beef Szechuan and the chicken and cashew nuts both with boiled rice and finished with banana fritter with a lovely bottle of Chenin blanc This is a family owned restaurant with the family all working there and it makes a real difference!! Best Chinese in Edinburgh with a private dining area and modern stylish toilets!!
I can not fault the service on our visit. The restaurant was lovely inside too. The starters were nice we however, I was disappointed with the main of duck chow main. The duck was fatty and the noodles were white noodles floating in some sort of gravy. It was lacking flavour and the meat was not good. We over heard another table complain and send back their duck too. I didn't have the heart to complain to the lovely waitress. Sorry to write this but this restaurant was amazing when it used to be in Newington. We visited a few years ago and it took two hours to get served and all of our starters decided to give it another go to see if it had improved. I hope this helps to get things sorted. As it is an expensive restaurant too.
Reserved a table for 7, called up and they let us change it to 7:30 with no issue. The restaurant was atmospheric, however music could have been louder. We were greeted on arrival by a very polite waitress and the service continued to be great, with excellent food which was served at a good speed after ordering and between each course.
