Have tried most in Paignton and few in Torquay, even ones higher rated on here, but this place is simply the best, very consistent great food, use this place every weekend, can't give better praise than that

Was walking past the restaurant and were very hungry so me and my girlfriend ordered a chicken chow mein. There was an extra charge of 50p for card usage which is fair enough, however this brought the price to £5.30 which is considerably more than most takeaways, even when you consider the 50p extra charge. However despite this the food... More

First time I've been there and ordered myself a chow mein. Unfortunately I got home and physically threw it all back up again, really did not do me any favours for my stomach whatsoever. Not impressed, I would not recommend this takeaway to anyone. Quick service, but certainly not worth it for the quality of food they serve.

Always use this Chinese for our delivered meals. Have always been okay. But tonight a rice was missing from the order, we phoned and were told we would be charged, even though it was their mistake. Also the Kung pao beef was more like a Chinese beef curry. Really disappointed will think twice before ordering again. As we regularly order... More

I’m very sorry you were dissatisfied - but you were not charged extra for your rice as we checked that there was only one in the order, however we offered to send another (charging for the additional rice but nothing more) which was then rejected. As for the Kung Pao beef and beef curry, they are significantly different in both... More
