The Kweilin has been serving Cantonese food in the New Town for quarter of a century, and a recent change of ownership has done nothing to rock the boat. Dim-sum, crispy duck and crab soup are among the popular starters while main courses range from familiar char sui pork to rather more adventurous stewed duck feet and Chinese mushrooms. Seafood, such as the classic steamed sea bass with ginger and spring onion, forms a major part of the menu’s appeal. The smart New Town premises are reflected in the smart New Town clientele but it is far from stuffy. Banquet menus start at £23.95 a head. Lunch is available Tuesday to Saturday, offering two courses for £10.95.
