Ricebox, 28 Easter Rd, EH7 5RG, Edinburgh

First night in a new flat ina new part of town - had to try the nearest takeaway. It's a 2 minute walk!

The Ricebox looks a bit shabby when it's closed but it's actually slightly odd as you walk in as it's got a neon/post-90s modern look to it.

Quick preparation on the food, reasonable prices and a menu that has pictures of all the dishes (accurate - no employment of professional food photgraphers here).

We had a mixed fried appetisers - prawns, wontons (worst bit) ribs and spring rolls along with duck rolls which were ace. All very good. Then we had a sweet chili beef and a Ho Fun both of which were well tasty. No desserts tried but they do supply chopsticks as standard and fortune cookies (no lottery numbers).

They also do a funny little token for every tenner spent. With 4 you get a ricebox baseball cap, with 8 you get a bag and with 20 or so you get a hoodie...

Anyway, good food, quick, friendly service in the store - will definitely be going again. We spent about £21 on two of us with quite a lot of food (it had been a very long day) but you could easily get a main each for about £12. Not the cheapest but worth it.

The food is quite nice, I think. We usually order duck dish and some noodle. I never had a food poisoning from this takeaway. :) (That's important, isn't it? For me, it is).

The delivery driver is always very very nice (non-Chinese, we always have a red-hair cute boy) and that smile makes the food better. :D

Well, one thing is, though, ... that their fortune cookies are always soggy. :(

Felt the need for some decent takeaway food and from the outside Ricebox looked just the trick.

Amazing how looks can deceive. Having specifically asked whether the Crispy Shredded Beef with Chilli Sauce was sweet or not (I'm not a fan of sweet food when you're expecting savoury), we were told that it wasn't sweet. All good so far. On arriving home, we were disappointed with soggy, chewy (definitely not crispy) and sweet beef, swimming in MSG. Inedible. The prawn crackers were stale. The only reason there is more than one star on this review is that the duck spring rolls were ok, and the service was friendly and fairly quick.

I'm afraid a repeat visit isn't on our menu.
