We were in Paignton for the weekend and just googled the nearest Chinese restaurant. We were greeted by a friendly waiter and given complimentary prawn crackers. We chose individual dishes rather than the set menu purely as it suited us. It was served quickly and piping hot!! Absolutely delicious - best Chinese we had in a long while. Definitely recommend...

We were on holiday in Paignton 2 years ago, an we went in here not knowing anywhere, as we had just had a 7 hour drive. The "Eat as much as you like" Menu was all cooked fresh, not stood out in heated units, so was very fresh. We went back there another 3 times in the 10 day holiday!... More

We had a meal there on Friday night and I was very impressed the service was fast and friendly. Every course was great very fresh and tasty and served very efficiently.The special rice was really good and we enjoyed it. We will certainly go again next time we are down in Paignton.

Seems to one of a few Chinese restaurants in Torbay. Went there last Sunday evening. Premises are a bit dark, but the food and service was good. Would recommend the buffet menu, each dish is cooked individually for you. Would go back.

We went to the Dragon Pearl on Sunday evening as our regular Chinese was closed for refurbishment , we were seated at 7pm and were looking forward to a nice meal. Considering there were only three other tables of two you wouldn't have expected the problems we encountered. Firstly the waitress literally threw the menus at us and rushed us... More
