The goal of Cantonese cooking is to preserve the food’s original essence: it is enhanced by the cooking process. The goal of seasoning is to complement -not overpower. The main ingredient is the centre of the plate. It’s a subtle yet intense cuisine with an array of flavours and a range of cooking techniques.
Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre, Karen’s Unicorn is a restaurant serving authentic, traditional Chinese cuisine. The food we serve at our restaurant is as creative as our name – which has tempted more than a few diners into our doors. Come for the name and stay for the food. House specials include salty and spicy squid, and steamed seabass in black bean sauce. These dishes are examples of our delicious Chinese cuisine combined with the wonderful natural resources available in Scotland.
