“Don't be fooled by the outside - go downstairs and enjoy!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

You could be forgiven for thinking this is just a carry out as the frontage is a bit confusing, but head down the stairs to the restaurant and you'll find a great Chinese with an interesting atmosphere and excellent service.
Menu is relatively standard but with a few twists and all dishes are very well cooked and genuinely authentic tasting.
Service is excellent - prompt, unobtrusive, attentive, & friendly.
Worth seeking out!

“Simply the best ALWAYS!”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 via mobile

This is our favourite restaurant in Edinburgh. We regularly sit in on a Friday evening and get a takeaway from time to time. We usually take the Banquet for 2 as it is better value. When we sit in we invariably change one of the dishes at no extra charge. Food is always served hot and fresh, with enough time between courses. Great choice of dishes and the yang chow rice is amazing! The atmosphere is great with nice decor and good music (never too loud). They resisted the temptation to have oriental music. Nice chocolates at the end of the meal and a bonus is the free lollipops. We've also had family gatherings here and the service was excellent. I honestly can't think of anything negative to say about Taste Good and have recommended it to numerous friends, none of whom have been disappointed.

“Hidden Gem not to be missed!”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

The Welsh ladies pool team are a hard bunch to please and we really only chose this restaurant because it was close to the venue we were playing in...well we're glad we found amazing place! Very contemporary decor and although they were busy and we didn't book they accomodated us without any bother! The menu is extensive and the food game out very quickly. Everyone only had good things to say about the food and the captain (usually very fussy) told the waiter it was the best chinese she had ever had....we will recommend to all the teams and hope to visit again in the future.

“Ordered a Take-Away”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

On our occasional visits back to Edinburgh, my son had used this place to feed us occasionally
Now we live here, we gave it a go ourselves
Phoned an order in for collection and was given 'Ready in 15-20 mins' - This at tea-Time.
Picked it up & brought it back, thinking I had bought enough to keep some for later.
4 Hungry adults and a child polished 95% of it off and son took the rest home as a doggy bag!
The food isn't necessarily the same as other Chinese restaurants, this tending to Cantonese, so some customers might not get exactly what they expect.
