Just visited the restaurant,so cannot comment on hotel but looks nice. Friendly welcome. Restaurant has a relaxing feel to it with chill music playing softly in the background. The food is great. Attentive staff. One of the best Chinese restaurants I have eaten in while in Devon.

We booked Chi Oriental for an overnight stay at a half way point on a journey to south Devon. We booked on the basis of the many excellent reviews and were not disappointed in the slightest. Upon arrival had a very friendly welcome which included hosts offering us the choice of table in the restaurant for that evening to reserve,...

My stay in the Chi was almost perfect. The rooms are very comfortable and come with everything you need (down to an emergency sewing kit and toothbrush) – an iron is also available in the hallway. The area is nice and quiet, making it easy to get a good night's sleep. Everyone working there made me feel extremely welcome, even...

Have driven past this restaurant many times and wondered if it was any good. We finally decided to book a table on a Saturday night for a quick meal. We were pleasantly surprised! The well-kept restaurant was busy with a lovely atmosphere and very polite, attentive staff. The menu is relatively small for a Chinese restaurant but the choices we...

Excellent Chinese takeaway, very clean and not greasy at all. My wife and I had pancake rolls, sweet and sour ribs, duck with bean sprouts, thai style chilli chicken and yung chow rice. Very generous amount of meat, freshly cooked and excellent service.
