Excellent value, great freshly prepared food

We last went here about 7 years ago, as we moved out of the town so wasn't sure if it had changed. It always had a good reputation and we had never had anything other than great food and great service. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. We found the same owners there and the same great... read more

We spotted this restaurant whilst staying in Paignton for a long weekend. It looked promising, we were hungry, so we gave it a go. The menu was not that varied, the food whilst freshly cooked was quite bland, despite both of us having ordered very spicy dishes, Service was also very slow, it took over 45 minutes to get the...

We have tried several Chinese restaurants in Torbay and mostly been disappointed until we tried this one. We had a few different dishes and and all of them were lovely. The barbecue ribs were meaty and fresh. I have tried chow mein dishes from other places locally and they have always been tasteless and covered in what appears to be... More

Had a takeaway from here recently having eaten in several times in the past. The food arrived promptly and was varied in quality, the chow mein a bit oily, the curry not too hot, but the other dishes fairly decent. It wasn't the cheapest either. Overall it was probably a little better than average quality and slightly higher than average... More

We were in Paignton for the weekend and just googled the nearest Chinese restaurant. We were greeted by a friendly waiter and given complimentary prawn crackers. We chose individual dishes rather than the set menu purely as it suited us. It was served quickly and piping hot!! Absolutely delicious - best Chinese we had in a long while. Definitely recommend...

We were on holiday in Paignton 2 years ago, an we went in here not knowing anywhere, as we had just had a 7 hour drive. The "Eat as much as you like" Menu was all cooked fresh, not stood out in heated units, so was very fresh. We went back there another 3 times in the 10 day holiday!... More
