Fantastic food and service. The aubergine and hot bean dish was especially yummy. We have had takeaways from here before but this was our first meal in. We will be back.

After booking on line to go today at 18:00pm I did not even get a response but we turned up and a young girl in the Takeaway said O that's normal that I did not get a response and she showed us to a table with Menus, and returned to answer the phone in the takeaway, after over 15min I... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy your meal here. our booking on line system has a technical problem on the day so the system did not send you a auto response as it should do normally. I think you came in not long after we opened and the girl is busy taking take away order while my supervisor was... More

Have had a meal in here before as a sit down meal, but for my mother-in-laws birthday we had a takeaway. It lived up to expectations, tasted as nice as a sit down meal and couldn't fault it. generous portions, just the right amount of flavour. highly recommend it

This wasn't going to be our first choice but we were so glad we came! They managed to accommodate our party! We had a round table which meant no was stuck on an end, we could all hear each other and the service was very prompt! We didn't have to wait too long for our food which was delicious, beautifully...

Came here with a large group. Even though it was busy we weren't left waiting for our food at all and everything tasted lovely. There's also a great drink selection. The atmosphere was great and all the staff were super friendly and helpful. Didn't want to leave! Highly recommended.

Ordered a takeaway tonight was very disappointed. Food was cold & extremely greasy! Also things were missing. I called the restaurant to explain they didn't seem to be bothered! Put the whole lot into the BIN was actually unedable!!!

Nothing overly exciting about this restaurant. Food not as good as another local chinese restaurant but ok. Poor Atmosphere. Real shame as could be lovely with a bit of effort

I am not sure how many restaurant you have been and what Chinese style of food you had tasted in the past. With you comment about, I cannot see what's not good about our Chinese served in my restaurant compare to the other one you said. Referring to poor atmosphere, what are you looking for, a overcrowded restaurant in small... More

Staying with a friend in Cullompton i fancied a takeaway, something I've not done in the UK in a number of years. My friend said this was a good option so after looking on TA, and seeing the reviews we placed a telephone order. Except, except the delivery service (subject to £2 charge even 750 metres away) seemingly isn't available... More

First of all, the reason we do not do delivery on Friday and Saturday because we are restaurant and not just a normal take away. Our main concern is to serve our restaurant as well as take away too, we will not be able to keep the quality of our restaurant standard if we do take away during the busy... More

Thank you for your review on the take away meal you had. I am sorry you did not enjoy your chicken balls, as we used 100% meat more expensive chicken at our place, it is firmer (not hard) than the 80% chicken which most take away used. Everyone has the different level taste to the sweetness of the sweet and... More
