Having read some of the negative reviews here I must confess to being very surprised. We were greeted very well and the food was beautifully cooked and presented and was one of the best chinese meals I have had for many years. I cannot comment on the takeaway service but the restaurant was top class and reasonably priced. Will surely... More

At the age of 63, I have had a few Chinese meals, but I have to say this was one of the the best I have ever had. The food was hot and not as general Luke warm. The staff flaked our duck and send it back as it was not to their satisfaction, and came back with another fresh... More

Having been residents of Tavistock for some years, we have just discovered that the Bird's Nest serves Gluten Free Chinese Food. Certainly wish we had discovered this years ago. The reception area and Staff are welcoming and could not have been more attentive in taking our order for take away. They were able to explain which dishes were suitable for... More

We have eaten here and used their excellent take away service for many years and have never been disappointed. Beautiful fresh vegetables and flavours and staff are always friendly and helpful. Deceptive building, but lovely in the restaurant once negotiated the spiral staircase

The last time I went to the Birds Nest was over 2 years ago and I vowed I would never return. However some friends booked the meal and asked us to join them at a restaurant in Tavistock, I was so disappointed when I was informed where we were to meet. My fears were confirmed. The owner/ manageress 'greeted us'... More

Food is ok altho a little overpriced. I'd expect better for the money they charge. Atmosphere is ok though and service good.

I really love this restaurant. We moved to the area a few years ago from West London and I thought I'd had to live the rest of my life without good Asian food. We were finally recommended the Birds Nest and I have to say it is one of the best Chinese/South East Asian restaurants I've been to. The atmosphere... More
