Wei Dao Chinese Restaurant
If you are looking for delicious Chinese food then definitely visit Wei Dao. It’s a pretty well-known spot that many love. Of course, you can also order takeout and home delivery if you don’t feel like dining in the restaurant. They prepare everything with fresh ingredients and you can really how fresh everything is in their dishes!
Definitely start off with their House Special Mixed Starters for 2 people – it includes vegetarian spring rolls, pork spare ribs, chicken satay, prawn tempura and sesame prawn toast. We also really enjoy the Sea Spice Crispy Squid starter!
Next on the menu – the Dim Sum everyone adores! We do recommend you order at least one Dim Sum so you can try them out because Wei Dao really does prepare some of the most delicious Dim Sum in Croydon!
They also have plenty of incredible traditional main dishes with pork, duck, chicken, beef, seafood, fish, tofu, vegetables, noodles, and rice. We are certain you will be able to find your favourite Chinese dish on their menu!

Tai Tung is another popular place offering Chinese cuisine that is super delicious and well-made. They have a huge selection of traditional meals that everyone loves which is why we highly recommend you visit Tai Tung – you will be left amazed!
As we previously stated, they have a huge selection of dishes. For example, they offer 15 traditional soups – our favourite is definitely the Crab Meat and Sweet Corn Soup. They also have a lot of seafood and fish dishes, chicken and duck main dishes, beef and pork, noodles dishes, rice, etc. We love going back because there are so many dishes we haven’t tried yet and since this restaurant has never disappointed us, we keep going and trying different things!
We also really enjoy their desserts – especially the Coconut Cream Jelly and the Sweet Mango Pudding!

Next amazing restaurant on our list is Xin Hyatt – a family run business that is dedicated to offering authentic Chinese food to their customers – just how they prepare it in China! The staff pays extra attention to every small detail making the service excellent. You will feel welcomed as soon as you walk into the restaurant and then you will be left amazed at how delicious everything really is!
They have Set Menus which are recommended for people that have never eaten Chinese food. For example, Set A has Xin Hyatt Mixed Hors D’oeuvres as starters including Satay Chicken, Crispy Seaweed, Vegetable Spring Rolls, Prawn on Toast, and Dry Ribs as well as Crispy Aromatic Duck as a second course. Then for the main dish, you can choose between 4 of their most ordered dishes!
If you are a huge Chinese cuisine lover then you probably don’t need Set Menus. Their main menu consists of delicious starters and traditional main dishes. We highly recommend the Crispy Shredded Chilli Chicken, Roast Duck with Pineapple, Kung Po King Prawns, Szechuan Style Chicken, and the Roast Pork Fried Rice – these are some of our favourite dishes!
