A very nice buffet lunch: this is not quite in the absolute centre but off a side road. Excellent value and plenty of choice. Quiet unobtrusive staff. The key to this buffet style is to have a small amount and try around at the various...More

I'd say it's better to book as the place seems kinda busy.

Most of the food was either made with noodles or batter, or in very close proximity to food with noodles or batter, it'd be worth giving them a call about it as they might cook things seperately for people with allergies... More
