In February 2014 Karen Wong's restaurant closed after 25 years. Karen and Peter deserve a well earned rest. I will now have to find a new favourite Chinese restaurant.

As usual we has a fantastic meal here and great service as always. Would definitely recommend this Chinese restaurant. Prices are about average. You always feel very welcome when you go to Karens. They even have a superb pre theatre meal Monday to Thursdays where you are spoilt for choice. A must try. Probably best to book before you go... More

Have visited here a few times. Karen makes you feel very welcome. She makes you laugh with her antics. Staff are friendly and professional. Food is wonderful and good prices too. So we will be visiting much more often. Best Chinese in Edinburgh in my opinion.
