Nothing to shout about. But its good solid food ideal for a take out which never fails and not too greasy with the staff always happy to suggest. Also prices are very reasonable so appeals to a lot of students.

The décor is nothing to write home about - its all about the food. I love Malaysian food although not too spicy. The sticky chicken, the honey chicken drumsticks and ribs are delicious. Its a great place to visit with friends and have a good natter over some fabulous food. Do yourself a favour and go!

Having been in Edinburgh for 7 years now, Kampong Ah Lee has been the place I frequent the most. I can't get enough of it! The food is simply wonderful, and you get a decent portion for £7-10. However, the menu only displays the names of the dishes - so if you're not familiar with some of the terms or... More

We decided we wanted something spicy but not the traditional Friday night Indian and thought: why not Malaysian? The first issue was the menu. There were pages and pages of dishes but - for those of is new to Malay cooking - this was confusing. We'd tried a few things before but without descriptions it was difficult to know. It... More

Just moved in to Edinburgh from Southampton when we had a brilliant Malaysian restaurant - food just like in Malaysia. I made a mistake of ordering a take away in Kampong, simple nasi lemak. The box was filled with rice, 2 tiny pieces of chicken, a spoon of curry sauce that wasn't enough to cover a tenth of the rice,... More

Right, you are in Edinburgh, near Royal mile, hungry and tired scrolling through Fringe or other city tours. Just keep walking down a little further till you reach this tiny little, blink and miss restaurant tucked cozily on Clerk street[opposite Lloyds TSB bank]. Trust me,your wait will be worth it! How did I discover this place? Well accompanied by few... More

I like the braised pork rice here. It has a large proportion and tastes like an authentic one in China. But I don't like the noodles here because it's a little bit too salty. The service is good.

Visited yesterday and realised that I have been visiting this place for 8 years regularly !!!! Time flies ! Prefer the Fountainbridge location as it is more relaxing. As a Malaysian i can safely say the quality of the food is outstanding ! My fav dish is the Malaysian Curry Fish cooked in the claypot. I have recommended many friends,... More
