This is an amazing Chinese restaurant. The food is sensational and one of the few where you can rely on the take away service being almost as good as at the restaurant due to the fact it is so fresh. There is an enticing menu; not so big to be off-putting, but varied enough in style and flavour. There is... More

We arrived in Edinburgh on Sunday afternoon and were looking for somewhere for dinner. My husband suggested Chinese, so we searched the internet and came across this restaurant's website. Unfortunately, the site seems incomplete and we were unable to view the menus, but decided to give it a try. It was easy to find and once inside we were impressed... More

3 of us visited. Good menu if a bit pricey - c £30 each once wine We avoided the banquet menu since no financial advantage. Service good - dropped chopstick on floor and Bill the waiter appeared immediately with replacements! ( The young Chinese waiters have unlikely namebadges) Definitely recommended

I found this place purely through trip advisor as I looked for the best chinese in town. Karens unicorn lived up to the reviews. My favorite of the night being fillet steak in Cantonese sauce. Great quality beef Staff were very friendly, and good fun too All in all, a very nice evening and I would definitely recommend karens unicorn

Firstly beware they have moved at some point and there is 2 lots of reviews on here, we spent about half an hour walking around before realising and having to get a taxi. The Abercromby Place is the correct address. We were so glad after not being able to find the restaurant (our own fault) that it was worth the... More

Good wine (great choice also), our crispy aromatic duck starter shared amongst us and the main courses were superb. From the main courses we chose I tasted the beef with black... More
