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... More

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... More

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.

A reasonable stay at the Chi restaurant. The room was in need of some serious maintenance - the entire toilet was loose and sinking into the floor, perhaps due to rot (!). Otherwise the room was well appointed, though the towels had marks on them. The room was extremely hot, so we had to leave the window open onto the... More

First visit to Chi Restaurant this evening was superb. The restaurant was furnished with quality and class. The food was very good especially the Roast belly pork which was one of the Chef's Specials for tonight. The staff were friendly and attentive without being overwhelming. This visit was to try out for a forthcoming family birthday dinner. We have now... More

We have been to Chi a couple of times since we moved to Exeter and have always been impressed with the service and the quality of food. It's a nice location, super friendly staff and a good selection of Asian food including some nice Chinese dishes and some Thai ones as well. We haven't stayed there but would certainly be... More

Booked into Chi for a two night break we were warmly welcomed and shown to our room which was spotlessly clean with everything you could need, the hotel is part of a restaurant which serves excellent food in very nice surroundings. The note/ restaurant is set in Kenton a lovely picturesque village near Powderham Castle. During the night the only... More
