My wife and I visited the Dining Room in early January while on a visit to St Andrews Located up a little lane off Market St the Dining room is a converted house / cellar and has all the original beams and stone walls which makes for a great setting The food and service is very good. I particularly like... More

We were very disappointed with the meal we received when we booked for lunch in December. The food is good, service is mediocre - if you are vegetarian phone in advance and check the options you will have otherwise vegatarian option is questionable. Staff friendly, but slow to serve on what we all considered to be quieter day.

This was the best Chinese takeaway me and my family have had! The food was delivered to us promptly, and well packaged, and was still hot on unpacking. The quality of food was excellent, and very, very tasty - couldn't fault anything at all and would highly recommend!

One & a half hour wait for food! Ordered a set meal and when the three others dining with me got their appetiser, I was told I could not have mine as it was the wrong order! They could have told me an hour & a half earlier. Waiter forgot drinks orders and food was just tasteless (what the others... More

Great carry out food, we use the Dining Room all the time but I must say that £1.50 for using your debit card under £15 is ridiculous, I am only charged 12p by the company that supplies my business with credit card machines, wont go back, sorry......

I can honestly say I had the best Chinese meal here. it was delicate, tasty, generously portioned and good value. My partner lived in Hong Kong for years and he too thought this place was "ace". When in St Andrews this restaurant will be our first port of call. Can't wait.

Food was nice but couple of things could be better. They do not serve kid's meals so my 6 year old son had to order full portion. 1 staff member continually berated one of the other waiting staff which made us feel uncomfortable. Finally, 4 Main dishes (from normal menu) and 4 soft drinks came to nearly £80, 2 of... More

This was our first time eating here and thought it was very good the only criticism I have is when I ordered a glass of coke it came out of a 2ltr bottle and was charged £2.30 which I found a bit expensive I think if they are charging that much it should at least come out of a can... More

2 of us went in and got a table. The restaurant was chilly and no candles were lit. Chose 2 courses from the set menu. Crispy aromatic duck was served on a cold plate so didn't keep warm and the pancakes had been heated in the microwave so were crisp and shattered when you tired to fold them round the... More

I was traveling with a Chinese group from Hong Kong. Everyone was surprised and happy to find good Cantonese style food in St. Andrews. The staff is very friendly and it's a cozy little restaurant down a quaint little alley way.
