I was amazed by the amount of different food served in one place as not many global buffet can offer a substantial amount. We had a good experience as each one of us had a favourite. I especially liked the sushi as it was just delicious. We will return and bring more friends!

The food was very average, mostly fried cheap food, but the drinks were terrible. Wine tasted watered down, beer was flat and got pushed around by overcrowded restaurant were our table neighbours could almost touch elbow with us and we were almost part of their conversation, just a crowd filled place. Will not be returning to it again

Went as a group for a Saturday lunch on 09 April 2016 and had a fantastic meal and drinks under £ 20 per head. Choice of dishes were great with all varieties of food with show cooking station. Do not miss the instant cooking of scallpops , prawns , squids , fish and other show grill food. Even a fussy eater can manage 3 plates. Desert is another plateful. Food are replenished instantly. No queues . You have to drinks separately from the Bar. Restaurant is spacious and very clean toilets. Easily accessible by public transport and close to underground for late night diners

This used to be one of my favourite restaurants until last week when I dined with my friends and family.
I cut into a piece of curry chicken to find it was pink inside!
I called over a member of staff to ask for the manager, she walked away and began clearing plates from another table.
I then asked another waited to speak to the manager to which he replied, he's over there. I said could you please tell him to come over.
I explained that the chicken was not cooked, Tom placed his finger in the chicken and began mushing it around in his fingers trying to convince me it was cooked then telling me it's the way they marinate the chicken breast.......
I was not convinced as the seasoning on the outside was yellow!
Turns out "Tom" wasn't even the manager, he was just another waiter!
I dished out another plate of the chicken curry just go see the colour inside this one,.... And of course.... It was white!

Disgusting! I had food poisoning for 2days after! I will never return!

We went late evening on a Saturday night.

The place was lively and there was a large variety of food on offer. For me, the authentic dishes such as Butter Chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala, Chana curry and Fried Chicken Breast did not taste as great as I would have desired - little to no seasoning. However, the crispy duck! Yes! That made my trip worth while.

The fresh stir fry option was lovely and the man working on this station was very pleasant.

Desserts here are not amazing, they're more like a small wedding buffet dessert table with a chocolate fountain and mini cheesecakes. There is a fruit option which could have been better if there were more wild fruit choices. The ice-cream was straight from a tub - very hard and perhaps would have benefitted from being pumped from a machine like a "99" with a flake.

The service was pleasant and the tables were cleared within minutes of us finishing a plate.

I'd return for the crispy duck!

TAKE NOTE: parking is free in Wood Green shopping centre after 7pm. Yes, for the win!
