One of the few things I missed after moving from London to Edinburgh was dim sum and Asian food more broadly. This is a great find. Lovely dim sum - freshly cooked, good quality & a good choice. We had the pork cheung fun, pork and prawn fun gor, house special prawn dumplings & char sui buns. They were all... More

One of the most basic restau's I've been to in Edinburgh but the food is delicious! Both the dim-sums and pots are very tasty, and we enjoyed the "twist" of the Portugese wines. Excellent for "exploration" and VFM.

The pork and ginger pot stickers were amazing - probably the best I've had - so I didn't​ expect anything to top them. Then they brought out the steamed scallop & spinach dumplings. Nowhere to hide with a dish like that because there is no sauce and the wrapper is so neutral. Really fresh subtle seafood flavours - so good.... More

The steam dishes are very tasty and i have tried fried dish number21, I can't remember what it is but you have to put the fried dumpling in soup for 3-4 secs then eat it! So tasty!!! The dumplings are homemade style. I really enjoy that. Then I tried also roasted pork stir fried noodles, the portion is quite huge,nice... More

We went here as we live nearby and heard so many good things about it. The service was alright, could have been a bit friendlier, but I go to China often and it's similar to the service I've experienced there. The food was very tasty, however quite on the oily side. The noodles tasted mainly like the soya sauce they... More

Great selection of Dim Sum and relatively well priced. I will need to go back to try more of the menu but the pot stickers and char sui buns were brilliant.

Great Dim sum selection, all made fresh, we had the softest tofu, nice Korean soft pancakes and the most wonderful selection of Dim Sum you can ever imagine. The place is really small so finding a table can be an issue. I will be back!

So many great things on the menu but it's the squid cakes and the Vietnamese spring rolls that keep bringing me back. One time that's all I'm gunna order. 3 servings of each. Bad boy.

I have used tripadvisor for few years, its my first time to give a review as the experience I had in Stack was awful. My friend recommeded this place, my partner and I were very excited to try. However, we felt really disappointed of the food and horrible service. The service was extremely bad, the woman who served us was... More
