The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. Most of the mains come with rice so no extra cost. Food came out promptly and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and ha a great 'feel' to it. Will definitely return!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2012

We didn't stay overnight as we live locally.
The pricing structure fir the food was a bit weird- £16 ish for a main course or £15.50 for a two course set menu with a choice of two starters and 3 mins to share. We chose the set menu as we really didn't mind. The lazy susan was fun in the middle of the table and all the food was very good. No real surprises but that means good and bad.

We ate early at 630pm and that worked well for us( no delays at all!) and for them, an extra table of three probably!

This restaurant is really good, food is outstanding and the staff are friendly and very accomadating. The seating area is clean and open, so the atmosphere is buzzing. My husband and I have been back many time, the takeaway is also very reasonable and yummy!

Large , clean room with cozy atmosphere, tea-making facilities and TV provided. Located upstairs from a stylish Chinese restaurant with beautiful garden. Access to rooms is provided through restaurant entrance, might be busy in the evening. Rooms are quiet, though. Would definitely recommend for a stay in Exeter's surroundings.
