We fancied a Chinese while in Paignton, there were only a few we could find on Trip Advisor so we tried here. Food came quickly and was nice, the staff were a bit grumpy but did their job. 5 star food hygiene rating was reassuring. Prices were higher than we were used to for Chinese food, and the restaurant was... More

We had intended to eat in the restaurant and try the "eat as much as you can" option, but decided to have a takeaway as we were driving and fancied a drink. We ordered our food and whilst waiting...

Ambiance terrible the female Manager was sullen and miserable which then reflected on the other one male waiter. The restaurant was busy and it was obvious that priority... More

I have been here many times and really enjoyed the food. It is all cooked fresh and you can order whatever you want for a set price. I decided I wanted to have a party here so I booked it and then went in to speak to the manager. I had a booking of 40 people and asked if we... More

Went to dragon pearl with my wife, the meal was nice but no more than nice but the service was very poor & slow. One of the orders didn't turn up but was on the bill,they did knock that off when we mentioned it no problem.We wouldn't return to this restaurant.
