This is a fab Chinese, does a great tea time menu for around£13 for 3 courses. Girls that own it are really nice. Lots of Chinese people go here on a Tuesday and it’s lovely watching all the dishes they order. Food is fab and...More

We are local to this restaurant and have visited on a few occasions. The food is of a good quality and I would recommend a visit. Pretty authentic Chinese food and handy as not on the city centre.

Clearly I’m missing something here reading these other reviews. Save a Chinese takeaway I once had on the east cost of Wales, this was the most disappointing I’ve ever had. Bland, poor quality mush. Gelatinous, flavourless garbage. Frankly amazed at the near £10 per dish...More

I have been telling my partner about Xanadu for ages, last night he joined us there and he loved the food. We started with a delicious, rich lobster dish, followed by a delicate steamed sea bass with spring onion and a light but beautifully aromatic...More

We had a very enjoyable evening at this restaurant at the beginning of September. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgable about their dishes. The service was excellent, the menu extensive and the price very competitive. We will certainly go back again the next time...More

If we can, when we're visiting Edinburgh, we try to include a visit to this restaurant for a first-class Chinese meal. But note that Xanadu is not open on Wednesdays (who would grudge the hard-working staff a well-deserved break?). The welcome we get is genuine...More

before I begin, I have to apologise that we could not resist the food and had served ourselves before the picture was taken. Let me begin by saying, I gave no idea where the comment on 'half a kilo of salt' came from' - the...More

Having arrived late in Edinburgh around the corner, the only option nearby was Xanadu. It certainly didn't look much from outside and stepping inside was a blast from the past, that I started to laugh. Have to say the staff were more than accommodating saying...More

I can't say much on the quality of the food. Just "good chinese". But it was a positive point that they had a "tea-time menu" (until 9PM) with sufficient choice that all of us chose fro it. A little bit cheaper than a la carte....More

Xanadu Chinese Restaurant is located in Edinburgh's Dalziel place, and offers delicious and authentic Cantonese cuisine. The dining room – with sky blue walls, crisp white linen tablecloths and dark wooden Oriental furniture – has a happy and vibrant atmosphere and is always busy with a young, sophisticated crowd. Xanadu's menu, created by experienced chef and restaurateur Colin Chiu, features classic Chinese dishes such as deep fried fillet of fish served with pears, pine seeds and sweet and sour sauce; fillet of beef Cantonese style served on a sizzling platter; and Xanadu's signature traditional Peking duck and Lobster Noodles with ginger and spring onions.
