“Great place, the best Chinese for miles around”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

I've been a customer of the food lodge for years, for takeaway and sit-in and I've never been dissapointed. I was so happy when I moved to Penicuik and found such a great place for one of my favourite cuisines. It's fairly typical British style Chinese with some good veggie options including tofu. The food is always nicely cooked, flavoured and presented, service is friendly and efficient, can't think of any negatives. Should be a lot further up the ranking.

“Disappointing Meal ”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

Visited last Friday night after recommendation from friends.

The service was very friendly but the food was not as good.

The first thing I noticed was that the table cloth was dirty and had brown sauce splashes on it, which was not a good start!

The aromatic crispy duck was good but the main courses were poor and tasteless with bland watery sauces with little proper seasoning and plenty of msg.

Was disappointed and sadly won't be going back.
