Been going to Chungs on and off for about 5 years..... Usually really nice, but went during festival and was really dissapointed... food was very pedestrian not up to its usual.... We were also asked for payment up front. Now I have been to chinese buffets in London and only really bad ones ask for payment up front as they... More

6 friends dined here on Monday 13/10/14 - it was very,very disappointing. To begin with the welcome we got was appalling (we should have left then); we then ordered and a monosyllabic waitress said £97-50 (or whatever it was) without any explanation at all, we were all a bit bemused..... but anyway what she was asking for was payment before...

Besides the outrageous cost for two dinners on the cafeteria menu the food was barely edible. I know my chinese restaurants around the world and this was close to the worst. There were a few choices I could recognise as being close to the name associated with the dish. I had hoped for a decent meal unlike what was being... More

Oh wow this was amazing. We popped in here on a whim on our first night in Edinburgh and was not disappointed, so much food to choose from I went up 5 times for food and once for pudding came out stuffed and could have done with an hour in bed had we not been going on a walking tour.... More

Booked for 5 people for a wee celebration birthday. The place felt grubby.....there were tares in the upholstery on the chairs...the staff outfits needed a good ironing..the place is pretty run down but was fairly busy when we arrived. There are no frills here...it's basic chinese buffet. I bit into something but my teeth could not penetrate it....the food is... More

Congratulations for checking here first, unless you want to ruin your day do not go in!! First of all the service was non existent. We were sat at a table and then didn't see anybody again. The food was terrible, the chicken didn't taste like chicken and depending on the dish varied between being extremely dry to soft and watery.... More
