I LOVE LUCKY YU!

I've been here four or five times now and it's just such a safe bet. The food is absolutely delicious, it's BYOB, the waiting staff are really nice and attentive-but-not-too-attentive, and the noise level is perfect. Quiet enough so you can hear your friend, loud enough that you don't feel self-conscious about being overheard. Tables are a bit of a squeeze would be my only warning.

I was really looking forward to taking my Mum out to her first dinner in Edinburgh for 5 years. The food had lots of flavour, however, every dish was heavily over salted, which ruined the beautiful Asian flavours underneath. I fed this back to the waiter, who gave no apology. For this reason, I would not go again.

It is always risky to try Chinese food at a tourist place. I am Chinese. I feel the food at Lucky Yu Canteen is reasonably authentic. The place is very small though. We had to sit with another couple. Overall, we were happy with the food and service.

Food was delicious and service was prompt and friendly. My only quibble is that they don’t have ice buckets. So if you’re bringing white wine and you like it chilled, chill it ahead of time.
