Visited on Tuesday night. I was the only customer so my solitude was increased. Had steamed chicken and rice in cabbage leaf and special fried noodles. Expected a bit better for the price, takeaway quality food for mid priced restaurant prices

I liked this place. It service what I consider to be authentic Chinese dishes (but not necessarily the style UK diners may be used to. The entrance is slightly strange, via a small door at street level and then up a narrow winding stairway to arrive in the restaurant (in first floor). First thing you notice is that it is much bigger than you might expect from the external appearance. It also has wonderful views along Princes Street - try to get a table at the west end of the restaurant if you want this - peering between the period pillars - the end where the bar is. It is not overly decorated with garish Chinese emblems and memorabilia but has enough to remind you you are in a Chinese restaurant. I particularly liked the lighting - various styles and designs suited to the decor. Food and service was excellent - pork and Chinese veg main, rice, salt and chilli squid with soft drink and pot of Jasmine tea for less than £15. I’ll definitely return - I can’t understand why some of the recent reviews were so poor.

We ordered some typical Chinese food which we had in another Chinese restaurant. The food in Hongfu is not as good as that place. Plus, they have 10% service fee and if you pay by credit card, they also ask for additional fees. Bad experience.

They had four waiters and this lady with the tattoo at the back and had short hair was really rude .
She was like excuse but we have customers do you guys Mind leaving WHEN WE WERE STILL DRINKING TEA AFTER OUR LUNCH
Plus the restaurant wasn’t even full and it’s really rude for a waiter to chase their customers out when they are still drinking tea.
Will never come back anymore .
