Ambience only affected by not many people in the restaurant. Delicious food and great service.

Had an amazing experience in the restaurant also had a fab experience in the bar area with a very knowledgeable bar person (didn’t get his name). His knowledge and ability of making cocktails and chat made our afternoon. The food was delicious and and the staff were also very knowledgeable, nice and polite. Can’t wait to return.

First visit and definitely not the last! Food is pricey but worth it! All food comes out as it is ready instead of in courses which is nice as you aren’t waiting long before your next bit to nibble! Service was excellent and staff were knowledgeable and attentive. The restaurants design and decor is warm and inviting though it was difficult to hear our server at times.

Beautiful venue based on decor, staff were very friendly too.
Food value was only good as we went for lunch menu option.
I found the options we picked to be more a British take on Chinese cuisine and was expecting a little more.

Lovely surroundings, but that’s where it ends. The food was distinctly average and extremely expensive for what you got. The chicken was very tough and stringy. Not recommended.

Lovely restraunt ,decor fabulous, staff great, but do not like the service charge being added on to my bill, this I feel is just management not paying staff appropriately, a tip is for good service not a given. Meal was very nice, but nothing outstanding .

Food lovely, drinks didnt come until nearly finished our meal, never got the rice we ordered. Shame as the food was lovely, spoiled by the poor service and lack of attention to detail. Staff not sticking to set tables, just running around randomly it seemed.

Quality of food very good however it was mine and my sisters first time in Tattu so the waitress explained the menu to us. She advised if we go for Taste of Tattu menu to order at least 3 sides as well as the starter and main that deal includes due to the "tapas" portion size her words were " they is not alot of food in the tattu menu alone". Therefore we followed advice and ordered taste of tattu menu along with 3 sides. When the starters arrived they were far from tapas starters. They were meals within themselves along with the side dishes meaning when the actual main dishes arrived we were too full to eat therefore ended up going home with 4 full dishes in " doggy bag"! In which we noticed several others doing the same. We felt this ruined our experience and definitely puts us off coming back in the future as it appears your staff are promoting you spend more money when not required!!

Great table especially as friend is a wheel chair user. Good choice of food. Starters are better than main courses. Angry bird was bland, barbecue chicken was warm, clearly had been sitting around. Sweet and sour pork, had 2 shavings if pineapple and a few pieces of dragon fruit. Pork was very chewy. As we had almost finished the mains the noodles and rice arrived!. As this was my second visit I knew the food arrived when it was ready , my main course arrived 10 mins after everyone else’s. Perhaps if the sides could arrive at the same time as the mains?. Given it takes 4 mins to do noodles and I’m sure each bowl of rice is NOT individually cooked?. One dessert was ordered dragons nest and coffee . Coffer was very good, in a cup please not a thermal glass. Bill for 5 people- 3 starters . 5 mains, 3 sides. 1 dessert, 2 coffees. 4 drinks- came to £212. Definitely not value for money.although lovely setting. As it’s Edinburgh there are plenty of far better restaurants to go to especially for great Asian fusion etc. I won’t be returning for a 3rd time. Very few men having a Sunday lunch!. Clearly the smart casual rule doesn’t apply!. If you want to pose about and take selfies it’s the ideal place to be seen

Let me start by noting that usually, I am not one to leave a bad review nor complain of service as I have worked in the food and catering industry myself and know it can be extremely demanding especially during the peak hours of a Saturday evening, much like the one past where my partner and I attended Tattu to celebrate his birthday. I booked this table for us 2 months prior ensuring we got a table for 7pm as we had arranged plans for after dining.

Upon arrival (10 minutes early 6:50pm) we were informed they were running behind schedule and were seated at a small table near the entrance of the restaurant. We could understand that it was busy and we were 10 minutes early therefore obliged, however we were left at this table for 30 minutes (now 20 minutes past our table time) before I managed to wave someone over for drinks and to enquire about our table. Our drink order was taken but were informed our table still wasn’t ready. We then waited a further 15 minutes for the drinks to arrive and then a further 10 minutes until we were finally taken to our table. We weren’t seated until 7:45pm.Totally unacceptable. Considering our table for 7pm had been booked 2 months prior it seemed an absolute joke.

Once seated service was good and food arrived in a timely manner. Our waitress was very attentive. We were however sat next to a young couple who seemed totally inebriated, in fact I’d go as far as to say they were perhaps on drugs with the amount of bathroom trips they made together. They were basically sitting on top of each other at arms distance from me and behaving totally inappropriately, it was mortifying. At one point they spilled their drink at my feet. They drew the attention of other diners and staff but they failed to address the situation.

Extremely disappointed and embarrassed with this service as it was supposed to be a birthday surprise for my partner which turned out rather disastrous.
