“Great food brilliant host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

As a long term user of hakkas " original little brother" the excellent noodle lounge, we last visited Hakka in the summer and found the food even better than the first time we tried here ( which was excellent) . Visited again between Xmas and new year and was not disappointed, stunning food particularly the Peking duck ( the best I've had since leaving Hong Kong) the restaurant is informal and relaxed but more of a night out than the noodle lounge that is still a great restaurant but much less formal. The kids love the food and the service is always just right. When visiting plymouth eating here and at the noodle lounge is a " no brainer" . Will have to try the new japanese venture goto as " johnny" the owner seems to have the ack of delivering great food at a competitive price.

“Great food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

My wife and I ate here for the first time between Christmas and the new year. We had a warm welcome and found the restaurant to be modern and very pleasant. We experienced a slight hi cough in that a starter was slow to arrive. The head waitress was very apologetic and the service made up for it afterwards with everything arriving quickly and hot. We were given a home made hot chilli dipping sauce which my wife loved and she passed this on to the staff. The next thing was the chef had sent out a pot for us to take home!
At the end of the meal were given a complimentary drink for the delay at the start.
We really enjoyed our meal here. Slightly pricey for a Chinese but worth it.

“Another stunning Chinese restaurant created by 'Johnny' of Noodle Lounge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The Hakka restaurant is situated one floor below the fantastic Noodle Lounge. The food is completely different but again the owner 'Johnnny' has sourced the finest Chinese chefs to ensure authentic food beautifully cooked. The menu is comprehensive and the staff are extremely helpful, friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. Johnny is always at hand to ensure smooth running and offer his advice. The atmosphere is relaxed but opulent and the prices are very reasonable. Five of us ate starters, main courses including a whole Peking duck and desserts (real crunchy chinese toffee apples) and drinks and the price was a fraction over £110. I would recommend this restaurant unreservedly and can't wait to try Johnny's new Japanese restaurant on a further floor.

“Very poor!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

My husband and I wanted to treat ourselves to a top rate restaurant. Read reports that were very good. What a waste ot time. The only good thing was the service. The food was terrible. Every dish was full of fat. The meats were very poor. Hot dishes were cold. Would never go back. A huge disappointment.
