Enthusiastic staff and decent food. Our Polish waitress insisted on showing us how to make the sauce for the dumplings. Some dishes were better than others.

Quick service sadly lacking in any original foody ideas. Run of the mill but fills a hole. The staff were pleasant but matched well with the quality of food.

Wow. Where do I start? I can't select the no star button... Got a birthday email. Great. Invited family and fiancé, mother in law to be. Booked Friday. Not told about the two stag parties. That, at least, would of been a courtesy. Sat us on a massive table. Ordered various. While waiting on starters they kept trying to put... More

Food is overstuffed with garlic and ginger without a reason. Expensive and not too clean. Floor is sticky. Dumplings are ok.

There should be a disclaimer when an institution is bestowed an honour of being the best in it's class in a certain locality when it comes to restaurants. The honour of being the best in any culinary expertise is highly subjective (just like MY opinion). What can be a delight for one, can be a disaster for another. I may... More

Thank you, metalsnake, for your review. I hope readers are not hoping to find an insight into our food in your 24 lines as all you have to say on the subject is criticism that we serve MSG-free food. We are justifiably proud that our food is entirely natural and contains no artificial additives or colourings. MSG is not even... More

We booked an early meal with friends before a Fringe show. Been wanting to try this place since the Gordon Ramsay programme ages ago! We were first in the door and warmly welcomed, our waiter gave us menus and took our order. We were unsure of what and when to order so just went for it. I wish the waiter... More

This is a great place for authentic Chinese food, and it was reassuring to see so many Chinese people eating there. Cheap and cheerful, all the food we ordered was tasty and I can highly recommend it.

From the minute we stepped in it was clear that this wasn't going to be a good choice. We were greeted in an off-hand way as if it really didn't matter to them whether we ate there or not. Pointed to a table so we sat down under an air-con system blasting out cold air on a cold night. The... More

Fortunately, we have been to Chop Chop before. Had we not, we would have walked out before ordering. Our table was not clean, the floor was dirty, the wall next to us spattered with food and the pipes by our feet dusty and grimy. The gent's bathroom was filthy. But we were warmly welcomed, and had the unlimited eight course... More

Outstanding meal. We went for the unlimited banquet for four and it was superb. All food freshly cooked with sublime results. There can't be better around!

Authentic north eastern Chinese cuisine featuring dishes rarely found outside China but very appealing to the western palate.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
