Got a takeaway here this easter sunday and the staff were so rude, they actually kicked us out to wait for our takeaway. Also we waited ages for only a couple side dishes, i had to go back in and ask for it when they replied "oh yeah...here you go" The food was disgusting, the chicken balls were burnt on... More

Our daughter was craving some rice so we agreed to a Chinese - to be honest, we hadn't eaten Chinese for a while as we much prefer lighter pan-Asian food. Well, we kept it simple - stir-fry veg & noodles (for example), and were genuinely staggered at how bad it was. Every plate of food was a gluppy, grey (or... More

Consistent, just like your average Chinese takeaway. It could have been from my local so no complaints from me albeit a tad more expensive which seems to be the theme in Fowey.

In a great town with lots of other options (we now know!) the food quality really is not good enough. I had a fairly basic chow mein where the ingredients appeared to have been cooked separately, and mine was probably the least bad. We all had stomach aches after too

After eating here once before I was happy with the food not so much the staff but didn't bother me to much as I ordered food and took it with me. Me and my partner don't have takeaways that often and being pregnant I really wanted a Chinese!! We live only a couple of minutes drive from the Chinese so... More

We always have at least one trip to Tai Pan when we visit Fowey, either dining in or having a take-away. For some reason the restaurant is never busy, you can nearly always get a table. The food here is excellent and the staff are very polite and attentive. If you enjoy Chinese I would certainly recommend a visit to... More

The last day of our week in Fowey, not many in when we arrived, but soon filled up. A lot of takeaways also being done. The service was pleasant and the food was also good. The only criticism I could make would be the price of the drinks, £3.50 for a bottle of Tiger !

The duck & plum sauce with pineapple dish is truly excellent and a generous portion. Sweet & sour chicken, egg fried rice and prawn crackers all for a bargain £21.10 for TAKE AWAY food
