4 of us visited here last Tuesday and had a really excellent meal. Plentiful hot and tasty Chinese food with excellent drink service when required. Very good choice of starters, mains and desserts. Good price point. Would definitely visit again.

Were do I start. Food was terrible,not much food out atall, frozen profiteroles all deserts came out of Iceland packages well if the staff were so professional they would think to plate it up in the kitchen. Staff were very rude and made you feel uncomfortable. Tried charging £1.50 for glasses of of water with full paying
drinks,also baring in kind we had two children under the age of 10 and they said over the height of 4ft is classed as an adult. State it when the waitress takesthe order. Will not be returning to this place don't not wish it to anyone.

First impressions was clean although quite empty. The one member staff seemed nice,music was depressing. Over charged for drinks over two pound for a lime an soda water. Food tasted nice just wasnt impressed as my friend wasnt to spend the night on the toilet. Rang to say an was asked to take sample to the doctor even when said felt better was told glad you feel better. Will never go back ever plenty of better similar restaurants at a cheaper price where everything to a higher standard. Surprised these are still in business to be fair

The very varied reviews of this restaurant may be due to it being a buffet - on a busy Saturday evening the food is fresh and hot, but quieter times it sometimes looks like it's been sitting around a while. The selection includes soups, at least a dozen main dishes (reasonable vegetarian choice), much of it very salty. There's also a dessert section, though it's basic stuff like jelly and tinned fruit. Prices vary around £11-£12 depending on the day, but there's an earlybird special for arrivals before 7pm which is about £4 cheaper.
But the main reason for the low rating is the sneaky drinks charge. They get around it being illegal to charge for tap water by adding a £1 'service charge'. Beware!
