The food all hot when we got it back to the lodge (about 5 mins drive away) and portions were very reasonable. On the whole the food was pretty reasonable although... More

Despite only 1 other table occupied it took ages for our order to be taken, after waiting over 30 mins still no starters so paid for drinks & left. Obviously more interested in the take away side of the business. Went up the road to the Lucky House takeaway and had delicious meal within 10 mins.

Second visit as food is always freshly cooked for you. Nice portion sizes, had beef chow mien and chicken chow mien. Was defiantly well worth the wait. Defiantly recommend it.

Had a takeaway from here with my parents. I had the mushroom fried rice and chicken with pickled ginger and pineapple. I loved my meal very much indeed; a heck of a lot better than the Chinese in Beaminster. My mum did comment that her plain rice was a bit overcooked and sticky but still nice nonetheless. The reason I'm... More
