Description: Xanadu Chinese Restaurant is located in Edinburgh's Dalziel place, and offers delicious and authentic Cantonese cuisine. The dining room – with sky blue walls, crisp white linen tablecloths and dark wooden Oriental furniture – has a happy and vibrant atmosphere and is always busy with a young, sophisticated crowd. Xanadu's menu, created by experienced chef and restaurateur Colin Chiu, features classic Chinese dishes such as deep fried fillet of fish served with pears, pine seeds and sweet and sour sauce; fillet of beef Cantonese style served on a sizzling platter; and Xanadu's signature traditional Peking duck and Lobster Noodles with ginger and spring onions.

This place serves up the finest Chinese food I can remember. Not only is the food outstanding but the prices are sensible, for both food and wine. Enjoyed it so much we're off back there tonight just 2 days after our last visit.

Went for a buffet and got to try lots of differnt dishes I would never have normally tried. The food was excellent. I had prawns in duck egg, squid, scallops crab and much, much more. I would recommend that you go and give it a try, you will not be disappointed. I have even heard that Tom Kitchen (chef) eats there. If you like fish you will love this place and it is not that expensive either which is always a bonus.

If you want an enjoyable, inexpensive meal out - this is the place. It is family run and the food is great and does not cost a bomb! The vegetarian spring rolls followed by chilli chicken with egg fried rice is my favourite. the spiced and salted chicken wings are also definitely worth trying!

Great food and decent prices all things considered. I would go again. Most Asian people will tell you the best Chinese food is in Glasgow so they all go there so to find something good in Edinburgh saves you the 45 minute journey to Glasgow.
