We both had satay chicken and specifically asked if the sauce is thick and creamy and the bloke said yes. What came out was this clear see through gunk with no flavour of satay what so ever. Its was all just MSG and half a...More

We visited the Dragons Nest for lunch with family on a bright Sunday in Ashbourne. Although the town was busy, the restaurant was very quiet and so lacked a bit of atmosphere. That said, the staff were very welcoming and the service was attentive throughout...More

Though we chose the location based on the inexpensive parking in front, we were pleasantly surprised by the interior and the warm welcome. Both soups, wonton and sweet corn were excellent, and the mains were very good as well, though my wife admits to being...More

We were hungry and just went for a meal that was not a pub meal. This place was perfect! Good food, very kind staff - smiling, polite, gave us advice about things to see. We felt at home.

Not a lot to say really - food was pretty average, we've certainly had better Chinese food. Service with a smile. Takeaway area was very busy - would be better if screened off from restaurant. Unlikely to revisit in the near future.

Warm welcome. Friendly, attentive staff. Tasty, well presented food. Everything we ordered was great. Duck & pancakes, prawn crackers, chilli / salt squid, Szechwan chicken, sizzling steak Cantonese style & egg fried rice. 1 G&T & 2 cokes. The bill came to around £43. We...More
