On our first night in Edinburgh we visited this Restaurant. The Restaurant was very busy which gave a quick turn round of the dishes available. The Buffet is very reasonably priced and the quality of food was excellent. They cater for every ones taste with a very extensive range of dishes. This is one Restaurant I would recommend.

We went here on a Sunday night, were seated straight away and were asked by a very abrupt waitress what drinks we would like and were given the bill straight away and asked what kind of payment method we would like to use. (Since when did chinese restaurants work like McDonalds). For me this ruled out ordering any other drinks... More

We returned following a good meal here this time last year. It was mid-afternoon on a saturday, very busy and tables were few. Despite the staff appearing polite and efficient the atmosphere felt chaotic with staff and customers dodging each other juggling plates of food in the aisles. Unfortunately, the noise level was extreme and spoilt the experience over all.... More

Also charged us adult price for our 10 year old as he is tall!! If u want more drinks with your meal you... More

The food is absolutely disgusting. There was a cochroach crawling about on the floor where the buffet is. The quality of the food is really poor aswell. I know its a buffet and you expect the quality to not be great but this is really bad. Toilets are covered in graffiti and look like they haven't seen a clean in... More

Can't comment on the food as we didn't get that far. On entering the restaurant at lunchtime which was very quiet we sat down at a table and waited for a waitress. The young Chinese waitress came to our table and proceeded to shout, and I mean shout!, at us for not waiting for her at the entrance. When I... More

Went here after an evening out. Very overpriced at 15.99 per head for an average buffet. Sat down and within two minutes drinks and the bill arrived. Very rushed. Extremely unfriendly staff. The food was very average and nothing special. Staff kept mopping and sweeping around customers feet. Table cloths were dirty and torn. We were then told at ten... More

Staff pleasant enough especially a young American boy who couldn't do enough for us but the food was cold and not great at all. We went at 5pm thinking it would be roasting and fresh but wasn't. Best bit was the dessert and that was average
