My partner and I visited this restaurant on a midweek evening in April 2010. Dawlish is the sort of place that is pretty quiet at that time of the year so we did not expect this restaurant to be busy and that proved to be the case with only two other parties attending in the time that we were there. Nevertheless we were largely impressed.

The facade of the restaurant (dim, thick net curtains) does not do it justice. We ordered the mixed appetisers (seaweed, ribs, spring rolls - standard fare) for a starter which I wouldn't say were great but they were fine. The main courses, however, were very large portions, well cooked and flavoursome. The king prawn curry was a particular favourite - not greasy in any way, creamy and loads of prawns.

The staff were also very friendly. When we ordered a satay beef, the restaurant owner kindly warned us in advance that it can be a little greasy and asked us if we wanted to choose an alternative. We didn't and the dish was only very slightly oily. At the end of the meal the owner took the time to chat to us and make us feel welcome.

The only downside i'd say about the place is that it seems to open only on certain days; we were interested in going again on the Sunday only to find it closed, which was surprising. Mind you, virtually every other restaurant in the town was closed on the same night.
