We were here for a family get together. Proved to be an excellent choice we were well looked after and the food was excellent. We will be back.

We decided to visit China Town after walking past it on the way back to our hotel after our first day in Edinburgh and not knowing where to go in the city.

We turned up at 8pm without a reservation and were seated immediately on a fairly busy Friday night

The service was brilliant with friendly, chatty staff who were helpful without being intrusive, and we were given some great tips on things to do during our stay

As far as the food went it was all very tasty, with the crispy spring roll starter standing out, but the star of the show was the half crispy duck, where sometimes you may find yourself struggling to find enough meat to fill all your pancakes, this serving was more than enough for the two of us, and I'm slightly ashamed to admit, but there may have even been some duck left at the end of the meal

Great value and tasty food with great service, what more could you ask for

First visited China Town Edinburgh a number of years ago and thought the food first class. Staff are very peasant. food is of a very high standard, so if you want good food China Town is a must.

Visited a few weeks ago with friends and food was first class.

Price wise I think it is fair, and you pay for excellent food.

I visited China Town on Chinese New Year with a group of 8 friends. We had booked in plenty of time and they must have known it would be busy, but it was one of the slowest meals I have ever experienced, After arriving we waited for 25 minutes and nothing happened, so I went up and asked for some service after which things speeded up a bit. Having said that, the food was really outstanding, one of the best tasting chinese banquets I have had. If you are in a rush then this is not the place for you, but if you don't mind a meal taking 3+ hours, highly recommended!
