we had a takeaway one night from this chinese and from the other reviews i read about this takeaway i wasnt disappointed the menu was extensive and they did have different dishes that you dont have on a normal chinese menu, i had the new dish which was thai style crispy sweey chilli chicken which was lovely quite spicy and lots of it!!
i would definetely eat here again if i was ever in dawlish again.

A friend we meet in Dawlish ordered a meal from there for 4 of us. We ate mid way to a container of chow mein to find the other half swimming in oil, thought it was sauce until we tasted it...it was definately grease!! The chicken balls was a mixture of hard and soft...the hard one's tasted like the day before and the softer was the newer batch!! A couple of the dishes was swimming in sauce and the other 2 was hardly any!!
Six dishes cost us nearly £40, so pricey compare to the other local ones!!

I ate here the other week for the third time and was once again impressed. It was exactly what you would expect from a chinese takeaway as far as food choices go but it just seemed to be higher quality food. the shop front is pretty standard, but clean and tidy and you can see your food being cooked which is reassuring. If you need a takeaway in dawlish that can deliver then this is your best bet. Plus english counter staff make ordering easy :)
