Good food

Seems to one of a few Chinese restaurants in Torbay. Went there last Sunday evening. Premises are a bit dark, but the food and service was good. Would recommend the buffet menu, each dish is cooked individually for you. Would go back.

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

We had a meal there on Friday night and I was very impressed the service was fast and friendly. Every course was great very fresh and tasty and served very efficiently.The special rice was really good and we enjoyed it. We will certainly go again next time we are down in Paignton.

We went to the Dragon Pearl on Sunday evening as our regular Chinese was closed for refurbishment , we were seated at 7pm and were looking forward to a nice meal. Considering there were only three other tables of two you wouldn't have expected the problems we encountered. Firstly the waitress literally threw the menus at us and rushed us... More

Went here because our favourite Chinese Restaurant has been closed for refurbishment for a couple of months. Crispy beef was really nice - lovely sauce and the beef was really crispy. The rest was rubbish. Brown sludgy rice, Kung Pao prawns that were way too hot and a very average shared starter. What really annoys me about this restaurant though... More
