Goes by the title review. What a disgusting meal and experience. Should come with a government health warning. Do not go to this pretend Chinese buffet, as you'll probably more than get food poisoning. Staff are not very hygienic, as one member of staff was...More

This place is awful, worst food I've had just about anywhere. Not really geared for the western palate as some of the food is very odd. A lot of it tastes strange, looks horrible and I ended up not eating much. Didn't feel so go...More
