There are many different styles of Chinese cuisine and you’ll find a wide array of Chinese restaurants and take-aways across Edinburgh. While Scots have particular tastes that have led to a fairly standardized menu of typical favorites, there are also some eateries with a particular regional specialty. It is well worth seeking out the establishments that go that extra mile to bring you a special meal.
Sometimes the best food is found in the most unassuming of places. Stack Dim Sum Bar may not look like much from the outside, but it is claimed by many to serve the best dim sum in Edinburgh without the pomp and ceremony of its competitors.
However, style need not replace substance. Kweilin serves immaculately presented dishes and its tasteful décor will provide you with the perfect backdrop for a memorable and delicious Chinese meal.
In general, you can rely on generous portion sizes and a gigantic menu of dishes to choose from. For an opulent Chinese banquet why not try one of the many buffet restaurants in the city. China Red serves a dazzling array of dishes, but is not found wanting in the flavor department.
