Tasty food - attentive staff

Husband and I decided to go for the three course set menu. It was delicious! You hardly noticed the ladies who served us - they snuck in like Ninjas bringing in plate after plate of tasty morsels. It was one of those meals where you wished it would never end! Price was very reasonable. Excellent... read more

Greeted very warmly after going in without a booking, shown straight to a table and given a basket of prawn crackers whilst choosing what to order. food arrived quickly and hot. All in all a lovely meal at a reasonable price.

Having eaten at this restaurant over many years (when it was Lai Kin) and now Dragon Pearl it was a pleasure to go back again. We had an officer party where there was about 15 of us who opted for the 'eat all you can' buffet. Excellent price and it took a little while for the food to come out,... More

Visited Dragon Pearl on the second day of a long weekend trip, and the food certainly satisfied, with one of the nicest starters I think I've ever had at a Chinese restaurant. In all, we had a pair of very lovely meals, and would certainly visit again.

Me and wife visited in march. Really loved the food, all freshly cooked and large portions. Didn't have to wait long for food as it was quite, service was good. Clean restaurant and reasonably priced too. Would definitely visit again when in the area.

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
