Never had a bad visit. Staff are very friendly and Buffet is kept well stocked but at the same time it's not piled high to the roof. Great choices. Something for everyone including the kids.

I was torn between rating average and very good but chose the latter based on the vast choice of dishes available. Yes, it's not fantastic quality but you can be sure to fill your plate, or repeat visits of plates, full of your favourite Chinese cuisine, plus a few western dishes too. Expect noise, people in your way and diners... More

Called in on the off chance of getting a table as we hadn't booked. We were shown straight to a table by a quite miserable member of staff. She took our drinks order, returned with the drinks and put them in front of us without uttering a word! We got our food and I have to say it was lovely... More

11 of us went for dinner on a Tuesday evening. Place was very quiet, some of the food was fresh but other items you could tell had been there a long time. Chicken curry was very spicy, usual Chinese food on offer, nice but nothing special. Desserts were in tiny pots, trifle, chocolate and strawberry moose etc, creme brûlée was... More

Been here a few times and it's cheap but food is poor quality and tasteless. Why at an all you can eat with small plates do people pile them up? Try somewhere else!

This is a very good one price buffet Ciinese and Asian cuisine eat as much as you like restaurant, the food is freely cooked, well presented and labelled, tasty and refreshed regularly. The staff are helpful and welcoming, you and the kids will love it starters, mains, fruit and icecream machine desert. Great value for money.

Myself and the family decided to try here as had been searching for an all you can eat buffet as my son loves duck wraps, once we got there we were pleasantly suprised at how much variety of dishes were on offer. Plenty of duck and pancakes at the joy of my son. We would definitely come back here again.... More

Staff are always really prompt and kind. One nice girl picked up my scarf that was on the floor. The food is always nice and warm. Little bit pricey at dinner time but a nice treat once and a while.
