Q. Why would anyone pay more for a takeaway than the cost in an average Chinese restaurant?
A. When the food is so much better than the average Chinese restaurant.
Excellent choice, efficient order taking and cheery delivery.

Not the best chinese take-away in the area. Much nicer one about a five minute drive away on the Exeter Road. Food quality generally not that good, but the beef chow mein is tolerable.

Our 1st trip to Dawlish and fancied Chinese. Found the leaflet in reception and another camper said it was good so thought we would take a chance. It's a little bit expensive. But so worth it. They deliver to the reception. Really quick service. Absolutely delicious food. Excellent quality and they even did the curry sauce mild for me. Highly recommend this takeaway.
