Excellent food, good service. Best Chinese in Exeter at the moment. Have been before and was good then as well so happy to recommend to anyone.
Excellent food, friendly staff thanks will return next time we are in exeter. Couldn't fault anything throughout our visit. Will recommend to friends and family
Great food - so tasty, and very helpful staff. Although they don't usually do deserts the chef made a special banana roll. All agreed it was delicious.
Food was good and the staff was friendly. We had food from real Chinese food menu and everything looked so good. We ordered 3 dishes and all of them were tasty although they were a bit salty for my liking. The restaurant was a bit cold which is the only downside I found. We will be back definitely though!
The food was great but the service was poor. We sat at the table for 15 minutes before getting a waitress to order drinks. we then sat again for another 20 minutes before they took our food order. following that, the waitress did not know the menu. there were only three other tables so it could not have been blamed on a busy restaurant. once we had finished our meal, we then sat with a table of food for 20 minutes with empty plates before again having to chase the waitress to get our bill. This is a shame as I used to eat here a lot and the service was great but it has really let its self down. I will say again that the food was really tasty and that is the only thing that stopped me from giving the lowest possible rating.
Dishes didn't all come out at the same time we had to wait for the last two courses over 5 minutes then with desert ice cream arrived but the banana fritters did not.
The amount of the fish should be a bit more as each dish had quite a small amount. But they were friendly and quick at service.
