Decent food however they are not up front with their delivery charges and prices so I will not be going back.

The food is brilliant! Not greasy like normal Chinese takeaways! The staff are very polite. The delivery always comes on time and you always get a little bag of prawn crackers for free. Very good Chinese takeaway overall!

Really good quality food!

Always deliver on time, also usually give you a wee bag of prawn crackers, that are actually not soft, but still crunchy and taste so nice you wonder why you give them out for free!

Consistently good quality food (especially roast cantonese duck and pork dim sum!) and also, none of this "Let's put a tiny bit of meat in and chuck in LOADS of filler veg like beansprouts", usually much more meat, and vegetables taste as they should: not boiled down to nothingness. Also, you do not get that horrible cloying, greasy feeling you get with most Chinese take outs, instead tastes like a wonderful home cooked meal!

Excellent value for money, excellent service, excellent quality! Nothing bad to say about them at all :)

Terribly dishonest business. Ordered the salt and pepper squid for take-out and there were only 7 pieces (hardly worth 5.20). I would give negative stars if possible. Very displeased, will never order again and will tell friends not to order. I'm sure they think they can get away with this for take-out.

Awful. Worst Chinese food I have eaten in years. Had to leave the meal half way through. Vegetables were soggy, Chicken was chewy and the seafood dish and prawn crackers were incredibly fishy. Fresh fish should NOT taste like this. We suspect the food was reheated in a microwave. Avoid.

I tend to order sweet and sour battered prawns with soft noodles from here - when they get this right, it is really, really good. Occasionally I do have issues - such as one time when I received chicken in batter by mistake (although this was replaced with no fuss, and was given an apology) and today, when they gave tiny very chewy prawns instead of the usual big, well cooked ones. If they were a bit more consistent, I would give them 5 stars. Definitely worth a try.

As a regular user I have to agree with Chris the food is indeed good and the service very friendly. But surely the prices are as you see on the menus? Seems a bit odd to me, you don't own a Chinese take away nearby do you 'Chris'..?

Food For You, 189 Morningside Road, EH10 4QP, Edinburgh

I have now ordered 8 meals form them and have been collecting there loyalty cards, the food has been very good and the actual menu has a good selection on it.

However, the last time we ordered we were quoted 45 minutes and it took 1 hour and 30 minutes and we were offered no explanation or apology. We ordered yesterday and again yesterday we were quoted 45 minutes and it took 1 hour and 20 minutes to arrive. Again no apology or explanation then to really add insult to injury I then found 2 hairs in my meal, I found this disgusting! Unfortunately as I was due on stage that evening and I was already late due to amount of time they had taken to deliver the food I did not have time to contact them to complain last night but have awoke this morning I feel quite put out by the whole experience and feel it more than reasonable to pass on this experience on to others who may be thinking of using them.

Food For You, 189 Morningside Road, EH10 4QP, Edinburgh

The food was delivered very quickly which was a plus, but I would suggest not asking for soy sauce because they bring you an entire bottle. I ordered one spring roll, and they brought me six. Thanks! The shrimp toast has no shrimp in it, it is just toast with sesame seeds on it. The lemon chicken was decent, and the employees are very polite and helpful. I would suggest ordering elsewhere though, because the food is just OK.

I never ever write reviews but thought I should for Food For u as I have ordered a few times now, inbetween ordering from other places in Edinburgh and the food is always so tasty and good. I usually ordered shredded chilli chicken and it is the only place I have tried that the chicken actually looks,tastes and feels like chicken. Really good service and very polite. Going to stick to this one now, some people rave about Taste of China but the food there is not as good.

I decided to order from 'Food for you' after recommendations from colleagues who live in the area. After a quick search on EdinburghMenus.com, I found the phone number and decided to give it a go from my hotel room that night. The hotel has a restaurant, but in the seven weeks I've been staying there, I have not actually been to it.

So, back to 'Food for you'. I didn't have a menu, so decided to wing-it and the guy I phoned was helpful in suggesting things I might like. Some time later, but within the time I had been told it would take to deliver, there was a knock at the door and I was greeted by a guy holding a large bag of chinese food. I did have some warning of his pending arrival due to the concierge phoning up to ask "Have you ordered... A chinese?".

The food was packaged in the usual foil tray way and as I eagerly unpackaged it, it dawned upon me that the hotel room didn't come with plates and cutlery. Funny that... So I made do with one of the silver (it was hallmarked) teaspoons from the do-it-yourself tea and coffee set that was in the room, which did turn out to be quite effective.

The food was still nice and moist and hadn't dried out during its journey and definitely appeared to have been lovingly placed in the foil trays, rather than just chucked in.

Overall, ordering from 'Food for you' was a most pleasant experience.

Food For You, 189 Morningside Road, EH10 4QP, Edinburgh

Well what can I say? Excellent food again. I sometimes wonder whether this business changes hands over the years or whether it is the same owners that just change the name.

Why? Because over the 15+ years of going there the food has been consistently excellent. Nothing burnt, cold or dry and above all (and this is a pet grip about some Chinese restaurants) they haven’t sold out to cheep reconstituted meat! You know, that white jelly stuff that is supposed to be chicken!

The sauces have colour but don’t look radioactive as if they could glow in the dark! The staff are well presented and polite with the décor that the customer sees clean and fresh.

I would recommend ‘Food for you’ above any alternative in the area.

Good food. Little overpriced delivery takes ages and ordered prawn crackers twice and forgotten twice - who eats a chinese without prawn crackers?!

Wrong food delivered (after a 1.5 hours wait) called to let them know was told they needed the wrong dishes back and they would try and send out new dishes but they didn't know when as they were busy. What a surprise - NO new food delivered! Will never use again!!!

Food For You, 189 Morningside Road, EH10 4QP, Edinburgh

First time I've ordered from here since Heaven's Kitchen merged with this business. Very disappointing and overpriced.

Food was overcooked and the chicken rubbery.

Also it took 3 attempts to phone through the order after being put on hold for an extended period of time and then cut off!

Will definitely not be eating here again or recommending.
