We ordered a few courses: soups, dim sums, noodles, also hot and cold drinks. The food was delicious and served in a professional manner. The waiter and a lovely lady who were serving us, did their best so we felt special. They did not do...the same to any other guests in the restaurant at the time. I think it was because we complained about a member of their staff sleeping and laudly snoring at one of the tables hidden in the corner 😆😆😆. They told him off of course and since then, we became the VIPs 😆😆😆. I would recommend this place for its food. Unfortunately the toilets were not up to a good standard.More

We had a meal here on Friday. We shared fried sizzled chicken which arrived and looked delicious and tasted great until we hit the bones. After the first mouthfuls on the top every piece was either mostly bone or contained all sizes of bone shards....Small shards which could easily have stuck in ones throat or cut one in the mouth. A great let down and the only excuse they gave was that we must prefer breast to thigh. Food should never be served in such a dangerous condition - it could be devastating if not removed before swallowing. Never going back!More

Seven of us decided to the last minute to go out for an evening meal, this restaurant pulled out all the stops to accommodate us.Excellent food with very freindly staff.

we arrived here after watching a great show at the festival. I should have followed my normal mantra of never eating a a place with pictures of the food in the window but hey, we were hungry and it looked ok. Whilst my friends were...perusing the menu, I nipped off to the ladies. We should have left then! Grubby, no hand towels, one of the locks was broken, graffiti everywhere. I mentioned the lack of towels but seemingly to disinterest. Foolishly we then, eventually ordered food and drinks. These came in dribs and drabs, always annoying but just about acceptable if the food is good. I had a pork dish which, although greasy was ok. On friends soup was OK. The rest......... one of our party ordered a chicken dish which was mostly bone. The rice was ok and plenty of it but overall, a most unpleasant experience. A complaint, sadly not to the chap in charge who seemed to have gone when we were leaving again fell on deaf ears. Never again, I’m afraid. I don’t like writing bad reviews but this was sadly justifiedMore

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
