Have been looking for half decent Chinese food since I came to Cornwall and at last I've found one. Had a takeout food was nice, still warm wouldn't say it's the best I've ever had, but will say it's the best I've had in Cornwall to date. Would recommend and will be back to dine in soon.

This restaurant is close to a street full of guest houses/B&Bs and is really convenient if you don't fancy the trek into town. Service was fast and friendly and the food was very good value, tasty and well cooked although I do agree with Miranda B re: the peas, as without them the fried rice is a tad bland. The... More

We have been to Newquay and the surrounding area several times now and never had a chinese but this came up on google as our nearest. Don't let the outside or inside decor put you off! We were a family of 4 and had a fantastic meal and one of the best crispy ducks we have had. Would definately recommend.... More

We came here as a party of 10, and we were very impressed with the quality of food and service received. Very tasty and hot and we were all served swiftly by two friendly waitresses. Crispy shredded chicken and beef was lovely. Highly recommend this restaurant and we would have no hesitation in eating here again if we are in... More

Live locally and usually very good until this time! Had the roast duck and chicken on fried rice with 'apparently' bbq sauce poured onto, only to receive our takeaway with a few slices of meat placed ontop of plain rice!! Very disappointed as when we usually have fried rice it's fried in egg with peas on the rice and a... More

Went for a birthday meal with my husband on 18/08 and when I rang up to book the table the lady asked if it was a special occasion, so I told her it was. When we got there there were birthday balloons on our table which was a lovely touch. The meal was delicious, lots of flavour and decent sized... More

We asked if Special chow mein was in a sauce or was dry, waitress advised us it was in a sauce. It was more like water, never had one like it before!!! Told waitress/ manageress, she didn't seemed to care. Salt and chilli ribs were nice but portion was so tiny. Spring rolls were cold in the middle, but replaced,... More

We had honey ribs, prawn toast, Singapore noodles, beef fried rice, lemon chicken and crispy shredded beef. Absolutely lovely. My daughter said the ribs were the best she's ever had and the quality of the food, and quantity was better than much more expensive Chinese restaurants. We'll definitely be back. Big thank you to Jess who kindly boxed up what... More
