While there are many Chinese restaurants that do dim sum in London, it is usually a challenge to find one elsewhere in the UK. We needed our dim sum fix on our trip to Northampton so we asked online for the best place to get them. The answer, Oriental Garden Restaurant.
On the junction of Verney Street and Summerland Street in Exeter is a Chinese restaurant that serves traditional roast duck, pork and char siew with noodles or rice and Dim Sum. On our way back from Cornwall on a Sunday afternoon, we decided to stop there for lunch.
Our favourites at the fried chicken outlet is not so much the wraps, sandwiches or milkshakes but what the restaurant is founded upon, chicken tenders and wings.
Housed in The Godolphin hotel, occupying what is essentially the main building, the Shutters Restaurant not only offers great food but an amazing view.
The last time we were here at The Copper Spoon, it was before the pandemic. We had our first taste of their layered Cinnamon Roll. It was so amazing, we even tried to make it ourselves. Two years later, we are back again for more.
