Went here for a late lunchtime buffet and as usual it was excellent. Perhaps a slightly limited choice of 'main'dishes but still plenty of food and great value.

Came here with my partner for a casual evening meal, having never been here before we weren't too sure what to expect. Service was very fast and minutes after entering the door we were usher to a seat and had our drinks with us. The food was great and the selection fantastic! Wide selection of Rice, Noodle, Fish, Chicken, Beef... More

Been a while since we were last here but the food was better than I remembered. Enough variety to satisfy a toddler and a vegetarian and all hot and regularly replaced.

My son loves it He can eat copious amounts of food and then eat even more dessert. Very good value, professional service If you can ignore the trashy guests you are surrounded by it's a good meal out.... I am sure they try and ignore me!

I called up a week beforehand and made a reservation for 16 people. Really easy and stress free. Got there at 8 and was able to go straight in as we were a party. The staff sat us straight down and we had a great meal. Really impressed with the selection and vegetarian options too. Only thing I would say... More

This venue is extremely busy, normally a queue to get in evening time, lots of bustling about, and noise, reminds me of a works canteen with tables and chairs to match, food left open so not nice in that respect for hygiene, see some customers picking food out with their fingers, and children being allowed to pick things up and...

Great place for Chinese buffet it has so much to choose there is something for everyone here. You can pick food and they cook it fresh on a hot plate and desert included chocolate fountain. We only going during lunch time on weekends as its cheaper and still loads to choose from.

Went en masse to be greeted by "we're charging more as it's our Christmas Menu, we do this every year at this time". Well if putting cheap crackers and festive paper napkins on the table, hanging a few measly decorations and having Christmas pud and brandy butter on the buffet constitutes a Christmas Menu then at Easter perhaps they should...

Went there after seeing Rogue one. Nothing changes except the staff. The food remains similar no real changes but it's ok not exciting but fills a gap. Toilets are clean. Good price.
