It was great but did not make money What a shame. My daughter and I went once a month. Best dim sum apart from the Dorchester in London. Bye bye dim sum shack. You made us happy for many years.

I live round the corner and work right next door and have eaten here many times. The food is great despite the awful decor and generally miserable waitress. But when I passed today a sign on the door says the restaurant is now closed.

This place didn’t disappoint and had the best dumplings we’ve had since we were in Tokyo. Friendly and quick service tonight all washed down with a classic Asahi. Would highly recommend the duck spring rolls and the pork rice! All at a good price too!

I hope my experience. You may have entirely different experience in this restaurant but I think there are far better options for having Dim Sum in Edinburgh. Good point 1. The quality of Dim Sum is nice. Bad points 1. We were forced to leave...More

If you can get past the bad service from the lady that runs the restaurant, then boy, is there some great dim sum waiting for you. The first time I came here with my girlfriend, I was very surprised by how rude she was to...More

No idea why this place is rated so highly. Portion sizes were tiny! We spent £24 on 4 dishes to share between 2 and they weren’t even great dumplings. In a really dingy location too. Had to stop by a grocery store to get more...More
