We come here fairy regularly and have a consistently good time.

Food is fresh and tasty, but does not venture beyond the predictable line up of dishes.

Service is always good and the decor is contemporary and striking.

Hidden away on a back street, this restaurant is close to the great but always-empty Greenhouse so you can enjoy a pint of Long Man before hitting the Szechuan beef.

If you have a hankering for Chinese, you'll be thoroughly satisfied by a visit here. Oh, and wine was decent too - not always a given!

I have eaten here many times, it feels like home. Tucked away, but only 5 minutes walk from the station, Hoi Sum feels welcoming the minute you walk in. It feels cosy, clean, and quite often there are Chinese or other orientals eating here. The food is plentiful, well presented, tasty and not expensive. There is a set lunch menu, with good choice. I don't come away feeling guilty that I have overindulged, but satisfied.

If you don't know Eastbourne this place is tricky to find but well worth the effort (the Tourist Information office is nearby and they give us directions). On the outside it looks unpromising, but on the two nights we went, the place quickly fills up and mainly with regulars. On both occasions we had set menus (different ones) and, both times, the food really was of the highest quality. I was particularly pleased with the crunchy texture of the vegetables in the stir fries. Service is efficient and friendly and the prices are very reasonable indeed. The owner and his staff works their socks off and deserve every success. Strongly recommended.
