Review of China Red Buffet Restaurant Grindlay St Edinburgh

Written by Karen Bryan

The China Red Chinese buffet restaurant in Grindlay Street (just off Lothian and opposite the Usher Hall) in Edinburgh opened in April 2016. Previously, the building was home to a Jimmy Chung’s Chinese buffet restaurant.

The restaurant has had a makeover. The biggest improvement being to the toilets.

I was impressed with the selection and quality of food.

I started with some seafood; the prawns and salmon were good. My favourite main course was beef with aubergine. I also enjoyed the King Prawns and Cumin Lamb.

There’s another China Red restaurant in Edinburgh, in Market Place next to the Corn Exchange.

Prices at the Red China buffet in Edinburgh’s Grindlay Place vary according to the day of the week and the time at which you eat. The lowest price is £8.99 for lunch Monday to Thursday, up to £15.99 for dinner on Saturday.

I think that the Red China Chinese buffet in Grindlay Street offers very good value for money.
