Found the food in the Grand Buffet very bland. Everything seemed to taste the same. Plenty on offer but nothing worth eating. Second time we've visited and certainly the last.The Ladies toilets were a disgrace.

This is a very good quality chinese buffet at a reasonable price. The staff were very helpful without being intrusive. The buffet was good although not as comprehensive as some similar estabishments. I would be happy to return there.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tasty buffet here. Lots of choice and really tasty. We liked the lemon chicken, and the char Sui pork best. If we lived in Carlisle we would become regulars at this place. Really good value, nothing not to like about it.
