This is a long established and one of the better Chinese restaurants .Not too large with a good selection of food .Parking often available in the road outside which is good if you want a takeaway

We've eaten in and had take-ways at The Bird's Nest many times over the past 10 years or more. It used to be very good, always tasting fresh and delicious. The menu is typical for its type. The staff are always lovely, helpful and friendly, yet the food of recent has failed to deliver on both taste and freshness. Sadly,... More

Offered a service of visa and refused to allow it to be used because of the fees requiring customers to go out in the rain in search of ATM. The food was substandard - it created a bad memory in our trip.

The only Chinese we use in the area and there are 3 to choose from within Honiton itself, the food is always very tasty, hot and cooked within a reasonable time even when busy.

Have used this place for a number of years for both take away and restaurant meals. Used to be a great Chinese but the quality of food has become more and more unreliable. Our most recent experience was a take away which was bordering on inedible - greasy and bland. Most of it ended up in the bin. Won't be... More

Myself and my family are regular customers and while putting up our decorations time flew by and we forgot to eat! Thinking of birds nest for a takeaway I double checked online and seeing that they close at 10:30 and at the time it was 10 to 10 I thought I had better get my order in quick! To be... More

As a family we decided to have a Chinese this last Friday. I have to say, the meals have always been a bit hit or miss, this time it missed the mark by a million miles. The main problem is each meal tasted of nothing. Incredibly bland. Not every meal we've had there has been the same, but recently more... More

A group of friends and I went for a birthday meal celebration here, we all chose 'set meal' from the menu . Service was prompt, food was was well prepared and tasty, all in all a very pleasant evening.

We live locally, and are serial "take away-ers" at the Birds Nest, but with friends visiting, thought we would enjoy sitting for a meal. The food was excellent as always, but we were particularly impressed by the service. Our waiter (Ben) was friendly, patient (our party included 5 children/teenagers who were indecisive when ordering) and courteous. When ordering he was... More
