Pretty much what you would expect from an eat all you can buffet - a wide range of different cuisines from around the world all to a reasonable quality. Come if you have starved yourself for a day beforehand and are ready to gorge!

The rissotto made from scratch by 5 star chef Sanji is fantastic. Couldn't be better or tastier in a 5 star restaurant. My husband loves the penne pasta and the noodles also made freshly, all very hot. They have dropped some desserts like creme brulee but maybe they have that at weekends but we only go during the week for... More

This place isn't too bad for food for a buffet. I Dont normally like buffets as they cater more for the masses however there's a little something for everyone. The fresh kebabs were the best options. Drinks were expensive. Overall not bad

The food here is substandard and cold. It's like a free for all. The plates where not filled up, so had to wait around for staff to replenish and then the fist few where dirty, and cold.

I know it was a buffet but for 17.99 each I expected it to be edible!! Or at least some of it would be. How wrong I was! We had only got on as we were going to a gig and as we were short on time thought this would fit the bill! The food all tasted the same, it... More

Visited 24.11 with family before attending a concert at First Direct arena. We booked for 17:00 but arrived at 16:45 to find that we couldn't be seated yet. We waited at the bar but no drinks were being served so we had to wait until we had our food. Going down to the buffet bar is like a maze, be... More
