The interior of Wei’s Chinese Kitchen Restaurant

In August 2012, Wei opened her restaurant which also offers take out food. Located just inside the entrance to Tamar Lake Farm camp-site, Wei’s Chinese Kitchen offers a new concept in Chinese Takeaway in Cornwall.

In 2013, the first full season of opening, the restaurant proved so popular and successful that it was obvious the original seating area for 16 just was not adequate! Over the Winter of 2013/2014, Paul has completely redesigned and extended the seating area to accommodate up to 30 diners and created a new, larger servery area.

Come into the restaurant and choose your takeaway from the buffet servery – see what you are ordering from the delicious dishes on offer. Alternatively, dine in and enjoy the relaxed ambiance of the restaurant.
