Xanadu Chinese Restaurant, 13-14 Dalziel Place, EH7 5TP, Edinburgh

Visited the other night with my mum and a friend who regularly eats here. We were eating from the set menu, which is two courses for a tenner. We also took two bottles of wine, for which they charge £4 corkage per bottle which is steep no matter where you eat. Does anyone know anywhere else that charges so much?

Starters were spring rolls which were fine, and barbecue spare ribs which were okay.

The problem was with the main courses. What I wanted was the deep fried shredded chicken with a chilli sauce/ On the menu it was chilli and honey or sweet and sour. When I asked about getting them with a chilli sauce the waitress/owner was less than helpful. What kind of chilli sauce did I want? We don't do a chilli sauce. Can't you have some thing else from the menu? It didn't seem like an unreasonable request, but she seemed more interested in ensuring that the large number of other diners were okay rather than us. Usually a good sign, but on this occasion it was to our detriment.

I gave up trying to order what I wanted and ordered the chicken curry. To be honest this was bland in the extreme. My mum and friend found their food okay.

Not the greatest service, not the greatest food, not the slightest inclination to return. There are any number of better takeaways in Leith, particularly Samuels where the food is much better seasoned.

Xanadu Chinese Restaurant, 13-14 Dalziel Place, EH7 5TP, Edinburgh

Knowing the chef personally, I can only recommend this place. What you are paying for is some of the best and well known Chinese dishes prepared by a proven chef in Edinburgh. I will not reveal who his previous employer was but I can tell you that it is a highly recommended chinese restaurant that has now gone wayward. I often head out my way to Xanadu for their chicken wings or, my personal fave, the salt and pepper squid! Brilliant!

4.5 from Elizabeth May (12%) on December 17th, 2007 (11 years ago)

Xanadu Chinese Restaurant, 13-14 Dalziel Place, EH7 5TP, Edinburgh

What a hidden delight! I opted for their new tasting menu, which at just £15 per head is a total bargain. It allows you to test the restaurant’s specialty dishes and signature style. Another great thing about Xanadu is that they do not use additives like monosodium glutamate and their dishes are prepared with fresh local produce so it’s better for you than many other Chinese restaurants. The staff are delightful and the interior decorating transports you to China!
