A group of 6 of us came to London for a holiday and 4 of us after eating here all have dodgy tummys and feeling sick! Would not advise to come here! They stand and watch you at your table and watch you sort the bill out and when you give them it they stand on your table and count... More

I have been in a few buffet restaurants this was just a tourist ease without making any effort. We tucked into some chilli beef which hardly had any taste and lumps of fat which made me feel sick. No pancake or crispy duck ?? If we had cash I would have tried somewhere else.

Went in with a family of 8, was told to go up stairs for a bigger table. No service at all wasn't asked if we wanted any drinks. The decor and cleanliness was poor. There was a cock roach on the floor so we all got up and left. Told the waiter and he wasn't surprised. Please do not eat... More

Just the worst restaurant and Chinese I've ever had. Food is terrible with scraps of fatty meat, cold and noodles were mushy. I would avoid this at all cost. I'm 44 and had a lot of Chinese food but I can never remember one this bad, even the bottled beer was flat. The staff were very noisy , were continually... More

Service was OK (it was very quiet) but most of the food was cold and tasteless. AVOID - there are so many better options in the area

My partner and I were refused service, sworn at and thrown out of the restaurant. All because of our ethnicity. Would not recommend to anyone. One star as cannot give less!

I dined at this establishment with my boyfriend and good pal Bryan this evening and I must say, it was not great. After wandering around china town for many minutes, we were unable to decide on a restaurant and so settled on this strange cuisine provider. The offer of unlimited food for £12.80 was very alluring. I did not go... More

Looks ok from the street, but taste, temperature of meal was not up to even a poor standard. Staff sour and unfriendly, very noisy in conversation between them selves. Take for ever to clear plates. One of the worst buffet resturants I have been to. Expensive!

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
