Stuck in Carlisle for two nights, I decided to try this. I don't really like these "eat all you can" arrangements. I particularly felt intimidated by the threat of being charged £10 for food wastage. Great: I choose something I don't like, and get fined? The food was all lukewarm; Everything I chose was approaching blood temperature. Labelling was adequate,... More

I have not been to this restaurant for 7 years, due to it not offering good veggie options. As we were off to the cinema opposite we thought 7 years might have changed things so decided to give it another go. Having ordered drinks I wandered around checking out what was on offer. It seemed there was only one veggie... More

Four of decided to give this eatery a try and we were all pleasantly surprised. I never really believed that a help yourself buffet style restaurant could do copious amounts of food, whilst keeping it hot, and topped up as some things proved more popular than others, but the sweet and sour chicken and fried rice were delicious. The choice... More

I have eaten here a few times over the years and in my opinion it has gone downhill food wise. No beef dishes at all and the crispy aromatic duck has been replaced by aromatic chicken. The price is good however, it was only £8.95 for the evening buffet, but not the greatest quality food. It was OK nothing special,... More

if that's your bag. I do like chinese food, but this wasn't my kind of establishment. It's okay for a quick bite to eat before hitting the pubs if your with a bunch of mates.

My friends and I visited this restaurant during the Christmas holiday period of 2015. There was no need to book, as the seating was expansive, and we were seated immediately. We ordered our drinks, and were given the option to pay before or after our food. Next, we were told we may go to the Buffet. The food was average.... More
