“Lunchtime buffet”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

myself,boyfriend and daughter ate here on a Saturday lunchtime.We received a warm welcome from the barman and were told to help ourselves when ready.The buffet overall is okay,though there is very limited choice and the shredded duck for the pancakes was completely dry.The chicken and sweet corn soup however is the best that I have ever tasted.The dessert selection is poor and aimed at young children rather than all age groups.I would visit again but purely because it is child friendly and convenient.

“Suburban Chinese.”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Called on after visit to aged relatives in Elburton. Convenient to main road. About one third full. Moderately prompt service. Average canon of anglo Chinese dishes. No buzz or particularly friendly feel. But clean and hassle free. Average plymouth prices. Nothing remarkable either way.

“Waitress extraordinaire!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

We have visited this restaurant many times in the past and found it quite quiet on occasions. Tonight was totally different, the restaurant was full and had a wonderful atmosphere. The food was just as good as always, hot plentiful and constantly being restocked. Service is normally of a good standard but this evening was of a different class. There was only one waitress on to deal with a very full restaurant, but you would never have known
She was incredibly efficient and attentive. Waiting every table clearing dishes and running the bar, all with a smile on her face and plenty of pleasant chit-chat. Biggest tip I have left in a long time. Will definitely be returning.
