We found this restaurant while looking for a new place to try out for lunch while visiting Edinburgh during the Fringe.
Friendly service, tasty food, decent portions for set menu lunch deal, all in all we did enjoy our lunch here and would not hesitate to come back.

We had a few dishes before the Tattoo and found it quite tasty, but nothing too special. There was good value for money. Not sure, but we think there was msg added to the food.

Restaurant was very clean, but the entrance way from outside is not too inviting.

We have been going to the RV for 29 years and we love it. The new décor is great and the food continues to be of the very highest standard. Our family selection has been fixed for about the last 10 years and the quality never varies. The crispy chilli beef has me salivating at the very thought of it. Loved it 29 years ago. Love it now. It's braw ken.

Went for the set 3 course lunch at £7.99 which is great value but lacked in taste. Although boasted gluten free options, when it came to it the choices were limited and they didn't offer gluten free soy sauce which is widely available in supermarkets Spring rolls were average and the crispy beef main course, lacked crisp. Not even offered chopsticks ( although Chinese people were) and altogether did not feel very Chinese and was unappealing. Won't be back.

Dear Kirsty, thank you for your feedback.

We offer cutlery for lunch setting because it's usually easier and quicker for most people to eat with them, and for a lot of people lunch is only an hour. We of course offer chopsticks on customer's request. And again for gluten free soy sauce, we offer that on customer's request.

Apologies that it hasn't been a great experience for you, if you need anything next time, please request that to our friendly staffs.

It was our first time back in edinburgh for years since we moved to London and we're really glad we visited this restaurant again. The refurbishment as others have mentioned makes a big difference and the service and food have got even better than I remembered it. The food is extremely fresh and the flavours are very well balanced so I think whatever you order it would taste delicious. The staff were very attentive and polite throughout. There was a good mix of diners when we went too, families , couples, friends celebrating a birthday...the whole place has a lovely ambience that makes for an overall wonderful dining experience that unfortunately I'll dearly miss when I go back to London.
