We came here for a quick takeaway and were not disappointed. Food was ready in a matter of minutes and was tasty and well prepared. Perfect for Chinese in Newquay. Next time we're in town we will eat in!!

After having a bad experience down the road at Wah Hing and walking out, my wife and I came to this restaurant and got a takeout (as it was about half the price of eating in) and took it back to our hotel. The good was delicious and some of the best Chinese takeout I've had. Highly recommend
