The food and service was amazing as usual. Definitely recommend for a chilled casual dinner where you can BYOB
Nice meal at Lucky Yu, some dumpling skins were a bit tough and the seasonal greens were slightly undercooked. But interesting flavours, butternut sando was great and delicious bao.
Consistently delicious food, with the burger dim sum the only weak link.
Friendly and efficient service.
We loved it; have been before and will be back for sure.
Very nice food and a great ambience, thoroughly enjoyed.
Great little community restaurant. Fresh food made with love and care served in a cute wee space. Get yourselves there and support your local businesses!
Had another first class meal at the Lucky You Canteen. Extremely well looked after by Katie who always enhances the dining experience as nothing is too much trouble.
Great food! Small establishment but food is fantastic and really great service.
Lovely food, flavours tip top, staffing welcoming, accommodating to our weird intolerances and allergies, delish bao and veggie options, gorgeous use of anise in the ribs dish, tasty gyoza, we brought our own wine and their rhubarb fizz was yummy. Very happy to have eaten there. Lucky us!
One of the best restaurants in Edinburgh, can't recommend it enough!
Lovely! Great atmosphere, and food as good as always.
AWESOME! Love Lucky Yu! The food is always delicious and the service is amazing. Katie was wonderful and my pal and I had a wonderful evening all round. I like that it’s BYOB too. We will be back again for sure! Thanks guys.
So tasty and enjoyable really impressed with the food.
This was diner food at restaurant prices. We were sat, served and done in about 45 minutes with a £50 bill to pay for a light supper for 2, no alcohol. If I had been there with a hungry person, they would not have been full. A soft drink was £4.50. The ribs were very good, the bao buns were nice but the gyoza were oily and slightly bland. As a plus, the space was really lovely and there was great service. I just felt it was overpriced (this is Edinburgh, not London) and I probably wouldn't go back.
Delicious food and good service. There is nothing to fault on these fronts. The only fault is the size of the restaurant but even that is not much of an issue. We are counting the days until we are back for more!
The food was outstanding! Everything was super tasty, super fresh and the service was relaxed and friendly. Get the wings!
Food was absolutely amazing, each and every corse was full of flavour and a great portion size. Great little restaurant that is a must visit byob too.
It's so lovely to find food of this outstanding quality in such a tiny neighbourhood place - the menu is interesting, the cooking is bold and confident, excellent ingredients and everything utterly delicious. It's a cosy friendly place with warm, fast and efficient service. Can't wait to go back.
Amazing food and really great service. Little bit cramped at times, but it adds to the atmosphere I would say.
Amazing food with quick service. Took our 10 year old and 12 year old who say they don't like Asian food. We persuaded them to be adventurous and the tapas like menu means you can order lots of dishes to try them. They loved the ribs, the chicken wings, the lamb gyoza, the prawn goyza and the beefburger and cheese goyza. They were so surprised! As the ten year old said " this place is a keeper!". We all loved it and the waitress was was so friendly and encouraging in our adventure. The butternut katzu was to die for! Kids didn't like that one though!
Loved it! Every dish was great... especially loved the wings!
Delicious food, great service and fantastic ambience!
One of my favourite restaurants in Edinburgh 😃
Amazing meal and really friendly service! We had such a lovely evening. :)
Fantastic food and service, one of my favourite places to eat in the city, never disappoints!
Fantastic, 5 stars. Food was excellent and the service was superb.
Tasty food and good service but uncomfortable seating and music too loud
What a great find! Small restaurant but huge flavours. Front of house staff amazing: only one girl and she did a fantastic job.
I love coming back to LuckyYu time and time again. The food is always very tasty and the service friendly and efficient. BYOB is also a great addition. Highly recommend
Lovely little place with super tasty food. Service is attentive, would recommend!
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.
Lovely place & food.
Been here a few times and the food is always fantastic, service is super friendly and quick, and atmosphere lovely. Such a great place to have nearby
Amazing service and food very unique highly recommend
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.
Amazing food! BYOB - £5 corkage. Get the chicken katsu sando ... delicious!!
Really enjoyed this wee restaurant. Great value. BYOB as well which is a bonus. The chicken wings were outstanding. I will be back
Beautiful food, compact and cosy venue, charming and helpful service. Will definitely be back.
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.
Absolutely awesome Japanese fusion food - highly recommend it. Great for friends and catching up adn its BYOB
Exceptional food. Service was friendly and attentive - and the playlist spectacular!
