We ordered delivery on our last night in town so that we could stay in and enjoy our hotel room. After two hours of phoning to check on the status our food finally arrived. They had gotten the order wrong and brought us two of the exact same dish. I called to inform them of my disappointment and the response I received was "That is a shame". The food we did receive was bland and just not very good. Nothing is inexpensive in Scotland and Karen's was no exception. It is too bad that it was so bad! Way to many good places to eat in the city to waste your time or money on this one!

Very up market Cantonese restaurant.
Professional service from arrival with being met at the door. The use microphones between the reception at the entrance then collected by waiting staff and seated. The staff were very friendly and helpful but occasionally found it difficult to understand our orders.
Dishes were well presented and delicious.

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. We were not dispointed we were made wellcome and shown to our table and our order taken. The food was amazing the chicken was tender and cooked to perfection my boyfried ordered duck wich was also cokked beautiful. Staff were friendly and gsve us a complimentary liquor at the end of our meal wich gave it an extra touch. If your in Edinburgh for few days id highly recommend this restaurant.

As you enter the main area you become aware the décor in the restaurant is the furthest you could imagine for a Chinese restaurant, but then this is not a typical Chinese restaurant. We booked for a 5.30 pm table on a Saturday evening, and a good job we did as the restaurant was surprisingly busy. The whole dining experience was superb, the waiting staff were so attentive; such quality is so hard to find.

The food is typical Chinese cuisine. We had soft shell crab and a selection of Dim Sum for starters, followed by Singapore Noodles and Kung po Chicken, all well presented and tasted good. Including wine the bill was less than £65. Excellent Service, Good food and Good value, will return again soon.
