Tucked a short ways up an attractive medieval lane, The Dining Room unfolds across two floors of a traditional stone-walled building that was, in a former life, a pair of wooden townhouses. Many of the original features remain visible, having been thoughtfully integrated with the unintrusive modern decor. The expansive Chinese & Cantonese menu emphasises seafood in particular, highlighting locally-caught lobster alongside a canon of king prawn, squid and fish dishes. The habit- forming Char Siu pork dumplings are not to be missed while those in search of a more visceral meal might opt for something from the volcanically spicy Szechuan selection. The staff are a friendly and accommodating bunch, led by hospitable owners Ken and Suzanne Ng. Open just since 2008, The Dining Room presently stands unrivalled as the premier choice for exceptional Chinese food in St. Andrews.
