Brilliant food we have eaten in the restaurant and had take - aways. All freshly prepared and cooked to order. They even do Gluten Free. Grest taste and good value.

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

Ok food, in all fairness good service if not a little bit pushy through courses but you are paying for pretty little decorations on a plate.. Quantity was terrible, quality was ok.. Glad I went, but won't be going back

If you want authentic Chinese food, excellent service and good value for money, then this is the place to eat. This has to be one of the very best Chinese restaurants in the south west. And their takeaways are superb too...

Had called here a few times for takeaway but as we had friends with us we deceided to sit in and eat. Lovely wide choice on the menu, gorgeous presentation and delicious. Staff were extremely polite and helpful and proved to be very knowledgeable when questioned on a particular dish.

Been here several times and food always good. The staff are friendly and helpful. Love the set menu's, but they are happy to change food if there is something you don't like. Well worth a visit.
