I was well impressed with Chop Chop. It is a very useful restaurant: cheap, fresh, tasty, and healthy.
Joanna Blythman. Sunday Herald Magazine.

The perfect place for cheap and easy eating, with a conspicuously child-friendly mindset and food that is well out of the ordinary.
Richard Bath, Scotland on Sunday.

It's simple, straightforward an perfectly judged. Chop Chop might well be Edinburgh’s best Chinese restaurant.
Mark Fisher, The Herald.

A place to enjoy sharing a meal of no-nonsense northern Chinese fare at incredibly low prices.

Chop Chop is the kind of place that generates queues around the block in exclusive London neighbourhoods.
The Sunday Times

Like no potato salad I have ever had before... Delicious. Far more than the sum of its parts. Likewise with the cucumber salad.
