We enjoyed a delicious takeaway with friends, but have also eaten in the restaurant many times. Unprepossessing from the outside, it is a good-sized restaurant which has a cosy, intimate feel. The waitresses dress in Chinese silk outfits, which gives an authentic atmosphere. It's not the cheapest, but the quality of the food and the portion sizes make this a... More

Went for an evening meal, 3 adults to children age 7 & 8. Food and service was lovely. Had 4 starters and 5 main courses, rice and prawn crackers. Had 2 drinks each. Bill a little over £100 which I thought was a little pricey. Should have maybe had a takeaway which would have been less than half the amount.

We have become a little bit bored with the Chinese's in our area greasy and bland and thought a little shop like this at the seaside would be the same.However what a surprise, friendly staff and a really tasty meal we would come here again.

After moving to Dawlish we tried Hoi Shing for a take away Chinese. It was very nice. On our 2nd visit hubby & I decided to try a king prawn & chicken curry & chips. What a mistake! On opening the containers the orange colour of curry sauce was not right. As we took our first mouthful all we could... More

Best Chinese takeaway in Dawlish, food is always nice and big portion sizes. Food is pretty fresh and cooked speedily. The meals are more expensive than your average Chinese but it's worth it as it isn't closed for weeks on end like other ones in the town!

We visited Hoi Shing for a Sunday evening meal while on holiday in Dawlish. To be fair this wasn't our 1st choice of restaurant, but the one we had initially chosen wasn't open on Sunday. After looking at the menu in the window we decided to eat. We were a party of five, and went for a selection of starters... More

We ate here one evening and enjoyed the food. The service was good although a little disorganised with new staff being trained. The portions were generous but they were happy to bag up what was lri which we had for lunch the next day.

The premises need updating as it's pretty run down. The waitresses were obviously pretty new and although they tried their best service wasn't great and our tables were not cleared quickly enough leaving empty glasses and bottles making it difficult to get to the food. The food was ok but the portions were far too big and very over priced... More

From the outside the restaurant looks run down I would say it's an ok Chinese but not particularly special .I think it is pricey with a Meal for 4 before drinks costing £85 . Would go again if in area and wanted Chinese .

During our week's stay in Dawlish we visited this restaurant twice (there didn't seem to be many places to eat in the evening!). The first time was with our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren (ages 18 and 2 months); the restaurant owner was very helpful making sure that there was plenty of room for the children. Service was excellent and... More
