“Probably the best Chinese in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

A disclosure first: this is our regular spot for Friday evening (for the last 3 years). Yes, the place is not very full and it doesn't look much from the outside, but the food is superb, the place clean and tidy and, as this is our normal family outing, we are not looking for a buzzing place with loads of entertainment. The confirmation of the quality associated with Dee YI came when I brought 8 visitors from Hong Kong for dinner. I was a bit worried what they'd say about the food as they are spoilt for choices in HK, but they were really happy with everything. Worth visiting.

“Still the best chinese food in Exeter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

...and I've been a customer for the last 10 years at least. Their spring rolls are the best, and the mixed hors d'oeuvres never fail to make us smile, with their vgetable carving at the centre...will t be a bird...or a flower this time?? Even my chinese friends agree that it's excellent,and adore the hot and sour soup. Lovely people too, who could ask for more?

“Nice food, but very quiet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2011

We popped in here one evening as its fairly local and lots of the City's chinese restuarants are now eat as much as you can buffets. We had mixed starters, which included some lovely ribs, followed by kung po chicken and beef and mushrooms. The food was very pleasant but we were the only diners, which was a bit of a shame. I think the restaurant is mainly a takeaway. Next time we'll probably takeaway too.
