“very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Stopped in mid week with a friend to have something to eat. We were made very welcome and Kenny was friendly and chatty. He recommended a dish for us to try, which we did and it was delicious.
Good sized portions and good value for money. Worth stopping in for something to eat.

“A friendly place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

From the moment we entered we were made to feel right at home. All the staff were polite and helpful with choosing our meals recommending either meals of the day or slight twists to what we normally have. They were chatty and attentive all through the evening. Very knowledgable.

“Good standard Chinese with friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This is a popular neighbourhood restaurant and takeaway in central Newton Stewart.
Kenny is an excellent host, and all dishes are made to order - not made up then reheated.
The menu is fairly standard, but tell Kenny what tickles your fancy and he'll be happy to make his recommendations.
The Unicorn would not be competitive in Manchester's Chinatown or London's Soho - but is an unexpected 'find' in this quiet, beautiful hidden corner of Scotland.
