Lovely quick meal

Popped in for an impromptu dinner while rushing around pre-Christmas. Friendly, prompt service. Menu had typical Chinese fare. Our meal was freshly prepared, hot and very tasty. Good quality too. We do recommend.

My husband and I went here for our anniversary whilst staying in Devon. The service was quite slow and you often got your warm plate well in advance of any food. The food was good though, very tasty and we'll cooked.

This is a fantastic chinese in the middle of Cullompton. i have to admit that I have become very good friends with the owner over the last couple of yearsbut that is due to his willingness to try and provide what the customers want. As well as the usual "Chinese" fayre Robby and his team offer traditional dishes that his... More

Being the only Chinese restaurant in Cullompton, we didn't look elsewhere. At first glance the menu was; to say the least; tempting, but the shredded beef was dismal, roughly hewed pieces of veg to plump the dishes out, in hindsight we would have been better off at the chippy across the street. Like glutton for punishment we ordered a take... More

The China Orchids restaurant stands out among some drab buildings in the main street of Cullompton. A Grade 11 listed, three story, Georgian house, it screams quality and ambience. A smart entrance and reception area which has an amazing fish tank of large, very exotic fish. At the reception desk you can order a take away or be guided into... More

I went here with family last night for a meal. I had not been here before. The restaurant was immediately noticeable for its spotless appearance, so very clean. The meal was wonderful, and the service was exceptional. Very very pleased with the whole set up. First published as Mike K (no idea why?)

4 of us went on a Saturday night and had a great meal. Set menu only £23 each and food was plentiful, tasty and piping hot. The flavours were good and authentic. Service was also good - we will be back.

After 55 minutes waiting for our first course of a soup we gave up and walked out. The restaurant gives priority to its takeaway orders rather than seated guests - we were not the only ones to be getting frustrated. We felt so sorry for the young waitresses who couldn't apologise enough. Besides this there was sheets of paper stuck... More
