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.

Just had the most lovely meal from here. My goodness, absolutely delicious! When you treat the family to a take away it's so expensive and when it's not a great one it's very dissapointing. This one is the bees knees! Very happy family. Staying at Carsington Water Caravan Club site and fancied a lazy dinner. Found this place on trip... More

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.

We are staying about 8 miles away from Ashbourne and nipped in for a takeaway. I'm always a little bit nervous when trying a new takeaway whilst on holiday, as they are an unknown quantity. There was no need to worry with the Dragon's Nest as it was delicious, I played safe with Chicken Fried Rice with curry sauce whilst... More

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 would eat here again.

We went to the restaurant on our wedding anniversary & I have to say it is well worth a visit. The food & service were first class the staff were very friendly. One of the best we have been to.

Had a lovely meal here last weekend. The place was extremely busy with Saturday night takeaway meals. We had three courses and really enjoyed the food. It is on the safe side more than very good standard. The staff are extremely attentive and want to ensure you have a good experience. Worth a visit.

Had a takeaway recently when family were visiting; as always the service was swift and the food excellent. Visitors generally remark that this is a far better Chinese meal than anything they get at home.

My husband and I called in for an evening meal having been in town for the afternoon, it was a week night and as we were early we were the only diners, with just one other group arriving before we left. However, they did have a couple of customers come in to collect take-aways. The décor is fairly basic but... More

We didn't eat inside but ordered a takeaway which arrived in about 10 minutes. Lovely food and very quick service, and friendly staff and nice to see that it was open for the time of year.
