“A fuel stop, no more!”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

It is what it is but I do wish these guys would look how this style of restaurant is operated in other cities. Service borders on aggressive, and staff might as well armour up and take on the enemy (the customer!). I go a few times a year purely as a treat to the kids at a reasonable cost, nothing more. Theres RULES though! But don't worry you get pounced on as soon as you arrive and tld what you cant do. I understand this type of restaurant would attract cheap skates, but they don't seem to understand that there are genuine customers like us!

“Loved it”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

Was overnight nearby and fancied Chinese and found this on google. Got there 6pm. Amazed to eat for well over and hour and drink for £8.

I have tried a few of these places elsewhere and food quality was right up there. Often latr afternoon quality drops off or night prices cut in. Not here fresh food always coming out and tasty with loads of choice. Sweets not as many but enough but not want went for. Staff friendly and helpful and quick service. No complaints at all.

“A little tired”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

The Oriental Buffet or as it is now called All Day Six does not feel a happy place, the staff look tired and the decor could do with brightening up a little, the choice is slightly limited, but good value for money and at £6 a head there is enough tasty food to satisfy most people, the only downside for me was the lack of cleanliness in the toilet area, I would eat there again but it`s not going to be that often!

“Good value, but not much choice”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 via mobile

Great value at £6 a head, but lack of choice within the buffet made sure we only ate here once. A shame as more atmosphere and attentiveness than similar eateries nearby.

“Excellent value!”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

This is excellent value at £6 per person. I think you are expected to buy a drink as well.

You need to know that this place has an interesting past and has had a bit of a reputation for poor hygiene. How much of this is true and not put about by the opposition one cannot say. I found the staff diligent and attentive and the buffet was topped up on a regular basis.

My only gripe? No prawns!
