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.

lots of choice, slightly more expensive than other all you can eat buffets but has more choice than the standard, the Grand Buffet includes a tapenyaki grill along with the standard chinese menu.All in all a decent place with good parking and tasty food.

Good teppanyaki bar for the grand buffet. Very salty mind but good range of food options that suits my fussy kids. They do a nice crumble and they have very friendly staff.
