“More than just a meal - its an experience not to be missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We ate here a year ago and loved it, so this year we went back hoping that it had not gone down hill - glad to say it was even better than we had remembered. Lenny the owner makes time to get around all of his guests and make them feel welcome (we could not believe he remembered us from last year). The place looks dated and you could be put off from the outside but if its great Chinese food you are after then do not let the appearance stop you from entering inside. Never tried any other Chinese place in Newquay but that is because food here will keep us coming back for more - no hesitation in recommending you try this place.

“Excellent every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Fantastic food, good friendly atmosphere, a real pleasure every time we visit. We have tried lots of different dishes on the menu and each one has been fresh, tasty and beautifully cooked. Lennie the owner, puts so much effort into everything he does. It has to be the best Chinese in Newquay, you will NOT be disappointed.
