I-Ching Chinese Restaurant, 83 Slateford Rd, EH11 1QR, Edinburgh

Typical British Chinese fare. Neither good nor bad only what is expected. Had their meal deal in the restaurant, soup, prawn crackers, and we shared beef with peppers and black bean sauce and a stir fried chicken dish. I don't recall what the sauce was as it was one of those bland light brown ones that seem ubiquitous in all Chinese restaurants in Edinburgh.

The decor was a tad kooky, I could have actually been happier with some more kookiness. They have hung on the wall a flat screen TV that shows the insides of a fish tank. Also had a water fountain inside which was peculiarly covered in plastic wrap. I am assuming that this is not always the case, but who knows.

Banana fritters for dessert. Mediocre, but at least they were fresh from the fryer not the gummy stuff you would get at a buffet or takeaway.

As a vegetarian, I cannot speak particularly for the meatier dishes that the I-Ching provides. Save to say that my boyfriend thinks they are "pretty good".

The vegetarian selection is, however, quite in a league of its own. There are roughly 6-7 different vegetarian starters, and a generous selection of main courses also. These dishes are not merely vegetables swimming in sweet and sour sauce either! The I-Ching serves delicious beancurd, strangely a rarity in chinese takeaways in Scotland. It is provided in various delicious sauces also, my favourite being the "Salt and Chilli Tofu".

The other reviewer here is probably correct in citing the I-Ching's numerous meat dishes as a little mediocre, but as a provider of Vegetarian Fare I find them unsurpassed. And most importantly, at a great value price.

We visit this restaurant maybe 3 times per year and we always have good food. Sometimes the take away is not so good, don't know how this happens. Lovely couple run this place - quite a personal touch.

I went for a meal here after a few drinks in Shandon I had chicken curry chips and monkfish in ginger n garlic - it was amazing. I shared the curry and the monkfish with the wife - amazing - will defo go back. Prices could be a bit cheaper but it was worth it.

Go here a lot for meals and also get takeaways. Really nice Chinese food. Normally get a chicken curry soft noodles or chips with rice and every time it's been nice!

Normally order here all the time but got a delivery and found a hair in my food. I then asked to be refunded and had the manager arguing with me over the phone he got the driver to come get the food take it back to the restaurant to see the hair and come all the way back with a refund. Just shocking - wouldn't recommend to anyone.

Quite possibly the worst Chinese restaurant/take away I have experienced in Edinburgh, when ordering the woman was repeating the wrong dishes back to me, finally got the correct order then she could not understand my perfect pronunciation of my debit card details. Food arrived in reasonable time but I found I was one dish short, the driver called and explained and said he would return in 15 minutes with my 4th dish (not very useful) so I called personally and spoke to another woman who I could not understand. I asked to speak to the manager and after 5 minutes he picked up the line, explained the situation and he said the chefs made a mistake and it was being prepared. I mentioned that my other food was getting cold, he said "what can I do"?

To finish it off he said that he would be charging me for the missing meal although I had paid already, after he understood this he said it will be £2.40 to deliver the meal, WHAT?

Bland food, awful service, over-priced, this is why I will be returning to Taste Good along the road.
