The new Shanghai restaurant is a real treat.

I've been visiting Edinburgh for years and for many of them, I visited the Rainbow Arch. Previously excellent, the Rainbow Arch had shown signs of decline on my more recent visits but I thought I'd give it one more chance when I visited in September. I was surprised to see the name had changed to the Shanghai and the place seemed to have been tarted up.
I was even more pleased when I saw the tired old menu had been replaced with what seemed to be Chinese fusion cooking.
My Pal and myself were really looked after by the two waitresses and thoroughly enjoyed an extremely different experience.
This weekend, I went again this time with my wife. The food was - if anything - even better than before with lots of dishes unrecognisable from the typical Chinese (Cantonese) cuisine.
The waitress remembered me from my earlier visit and was extremely helpful and friendly suggesting a special of fish fillets in a special soy sauce which was unimaginably tasty.
Perhaps even better was a chicken dish cooked in an iron pot (the first item on the House specials section) which was absolutely delicious.
All this after an unusual and wide range of appetizers and dim sum.
The whole experience was fantastic and we were left wondering whether it was the finest Chinese Meal we'd ever had anywhere (and we've had quite a few). On balance, perhaps it was.
Get yourself there before the place gets discovered..

 

 

Definitely worth a visit

Came across this place on one of the side streets in the Fountainbridge area of Edinburgh and passed it by on a couple of occasions because it initially looked less than welcoming. However, decided to venture in there this evening and try it out.

Walking through the door it looks like your average non-buffet style Chinese restaurant. The tables are nicely spaced out and you don't get a sense of trying to cram too many in and if you fancy a late night bite they are open until 3am.

The staff were friendly and welcoming and the service very efficient, although the place did lack any real atmosphere - but hey, I was there to eat, not to party!.

I had my 'trademark' meal, which acts as my own benchmark for Chinese food and consists of Chicken & Sweetcorn Soup, Chicken & Mushroom, Egg Fried Rice & Banana fritters and I have to say the quantity of the food was plentiful and the quality and taste of the food was excellent.

The overall cost of the meal was quite reasonable, £20 overall which included a drink and another starter was £20.

Overall, an excellent early evening meal which I intend to repeat again soon.

 

 

Great food and great value, best ever in Edinburgh!

We ate at Rainbow Arch every time we visited Edinburgh. They do really delicious dim sums and seafood with reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and considerable. We spent a night in Edinburgh this time on the way to the highland and dined at Rainbow Arch. We ordered the 50-pound set (five dishes and a soup including rice for 4 people) and we were again really happy with the food quality. I particularly liked the sea bass!!

Das Essen kommt schnell, die Karte ist uebersichtlich, aber dennoch ist fuer jeden was dabei, es werden frische Salate angeboten, was in Edinburgh eine Raritaet ist.

《英伦行旅游篇之二十三—— 爱丁堡之城》

 

从海边回来我已经是饥肠辘辘了,本来还想去头天吃过的立陶宛人开的餐厅,去吃breakfast(6个胖子,已经是最便宜的了),但响起穷游网推荐的鹊桥居(不敢确定名字),坐落在爱丁堡城堡的西面,一个很偏的地方,我实在是太想吃一顿中国菜了,而这又是北方菜,我沿路打听,又问遍了当地人终于在晚上8点钟才找到,推门进去里面那个热闹哇,全部是中国学生(据说是爱丁堡大学的学生)。一声“姐,你想吃点啥”把我的眼泪都快叫出来了,就像终于见到亲人似的。我兴奋的点了一份酸辣汤(这是我吃过的最好吃的),木须肉和一碗饭,那个饭菜香呀,真是无法用语言来形容。东北人就是实在,尽管我使劲吃还是剩了很多饭和菜,索性我再要了一碗酸辣汤,打包带回了旅社(旅社里有微波炉和烤箱,这里的游客基本都自己做吃的),11个胖子我吃了两顿,算算还挺划算的。

感觉是古老的英国,可以和伦敦相提并论了。
去爱丁堡观光的穷游人,如果想要吃中餐,除了那家地道北方菜之外,另外有一家鹊桥居,在比较偏僻的地方,但是价格相对而言会便宜很多。味道也还不错。另外住的话,BB无疑是最好的选择,比青年旅馆的性价比感觉高很多。爱丁堡相对比较小,可以选一个地点比较远一点的,价格不会贵的。

买纪念品的话,感觉女王宫殿的东西是可以一买的。
