We Had dinner at this restaurant last Saturday. Food was great and the service was attentive. Price for all you can eat buffet was slightly more expensive that I pay at home in Wales, but still good value for money.

Found this place by chance. They have an all You can eat offer or a la carte menu. We had the all you can eat and it was all really delicious with time between courses to digest. My favourites were the duck and the curry. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

My family visit nearby Dartmouth at least twice a year & we always visit the Dragon pearl. The food is fantastic. The afternoon set meal is exceptional value for £6.50. My mother spent time growing up in Hong Kong so she knows her Chinese food & this is up there with the best. We'll be back next year.

food was delicious and I mean delicious, their spare ribs are awesome, soup was very tasty. I had lemon chicken and my husband had king prawns both meals were lovely . The staff was very friendly and offered me a container to take home what I was not able to eat . Portion size very good, well worth the money... More

Very pleasant atmosphere-, we ordered a set menu and the hors d'oeuvre was very yummy and the aromatic duck to follow was lovely but the main course was a bit of a letdown as it lacked flavour.

I ordered a set menu and the hors d'oeuvre were really good, followed by the aromatic duck which was delicious. the big let down was the main courses which lacked balance of flavour. That's why I rated this restaurant only as a three.

Spent a ropey night in Paignton and this was highlight of the evening. Didn't expect much as restaurant was very plain and empty. The food was brilliant and very generous portions, we were a bit embarrassed at how much we ordered because there was so much when it arrived. Service was understated but adequate.

Thank MrMrsBobbett
