Description: I am attempting to do a review of the Leith branch of this restaurant, but I can only find an entry for the Morrison Street premises. It looks like at least some of the reviews on the Morrison Street entry are actually intended to be about the Leith restaurant.

“Great dumplings and very child-friendly”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Our favourite Chinese restaurant in Scotland. The banquet is great value especially if you have a large party. The restaurant is very child-friendly and the free dumplings for children is a great touch. Sign up for their free loyalty card and you get a discount. I only wish they would open a branch closer to St Andrews!

“Waited 30 min to reorder”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

We got the UNLIMTED banquet for 2. At first all the dishes came quite fast then we waited 30+ mins to reorder. When we did reorder the dishes came out 15mins apart. So it was like being drip fed Chinese and not being able to make a full meal out of it. I will not be back.

“Disgusting!!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

We bought a deal on Amazon Local for the banquet for 2 and when we arrived the menu was very poor so we ordered other dishes on top of the banquet. Not one dish was edible it was the worst food we've eaten out. And despite sending back full dishes, we still paid the full bill. Will not be back and would not recommend!

“Unlimited Banquet - great value with a voucher”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Been to Chop Chop in Leith twice now using an Amazon Local voucher for the unlimited banquet. Great quality food and more traditional Chinese cuisine than the westernised food you get in other restaurants and takeaways.
Don't go to this place if you are only a fan of Sweet & Sour Chicken in Batter (which is NOT Chinese food, it's Chicken Nuggets with a sauce) and egg fried rice, or similar. You are served traditional Dim Sum, salads and meat dishes.
Particular favourites of mine are the pork and coriander dumplings, prawn dumplings, crispy northern beef and chicken and potatoes. The ribs are out of this world too!
Service was excellent, and the 2nd visit was improved on the first. It was good the first time but on the 2nd visit the waiter showed us how to mix the dumpling sauce and allowed us to change a few things on the banquet order. Definitely worth a visit!

Some advice:
1. Look for a Groupon/Living Social/Amazon Local voucher if you want to go for the unlimited banquet. They come out every couple of months and the full price banquet is a bit too pricey.
2. Try and go with 4 if you can - your options on the banquet are much more expansive than with 2.
3. Look at the menu before going, and see if the food is for you. Most negative reviews on the place on here are with people who were brought up on turkey dinosaurs and chips, and don't have a wide pallet.
4. Take a membership card when offered. It's free and takes no time to fill in...you might as well!
