I do like my Chinese food once in a while, since I live in Torquay it's not that usual for me to get down to Paignton for food. Well, I am glad that I found this place! Authentic cantonese styled food, friendly staff and decent price... It has got to be the best I've tried in the area! My personal... More

Okay so it is still January but I was the only one in here on a Tuesday night. Food average but not warm and welcoming atmosphere. I have been to other restaurants when I'm the only customer and at least they talk to you. Quite expensive for what you actually get - have eaten at a lot better Chinese restaurants.

My first choice for a Chinese meal in Paignton, eat-in or takeaway. The food is always pretty good. The service isn't spectacular, but the staff are a nice bunch and I've never had a bad experience.

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

This must be the most awful chinese meal I have ever had in my life ! We'll start with the starter. Salt and pepper spare ribs. They should have been named salt and pepper spare fat in batter. The batter was quite tasty but covered a small bone covered in fat and absolutely not one bit of meat in sight.... More

I have known this restaurant has been there for many years but never been until this evening and I have to say the choice of food was extensive and the food we all had was very enjoyable and the service was ok

This Chinese restaurant was advertised in an information pack in our holiday accommodation so we thought we'd give it a go. 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...

We were a party of 4 on a visit with family who had travelled 250 miles to see us. We decided on this Restaurant for our family get together. What a mistake! 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.
