Xanadu Chinese Restaurant is located in Edinburgh's Dalziel place, and offers delicious and authentic Cantonese cuisine. The dining room – with sky blue walls, crisp white linen tablecloths and dark wooden Oriental furniture – has a happy and vibrant atmosphere and is always busy with a young, sophisticated crowd. Xanadu's menu, created by experienced chef and restaurateur Colin Chiu, features classic Chinese dishes such as deep fried fillet of fish served with pears, pine seeds and sweet and sour sauce; fillet of beef Cantonese style served on a sizzling platter; and Xanadu's signature traditional Peking duck and Lobster Noodles with ginger and spring onions.
