“Great food great place but cramped”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We came here on a recomendation from the shamrock bar on our stag do. The selection of food and quality on the saturday lunch was amazing i can only imagine what the evening is like. Food was much higher quality than we expected for a buffet. The only negatives i can say is tables are extremely close to each other, feels like being back in school and eating in a dining hall. Also toilets need attention considering the volume this place does. But all that aside, easily great value for money

“Poor”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

Bad quality food, food is cold and service not the best as you just get barked a price and then left to your own devices as what to do, no help or guidance for the first time visitors:

Very big restaurant but I can't see them filling it if they can't get the basics right

“aweful,sub standard,buffet”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

aweful food,badly presented.The various dishes were very undistinguished and flavour wise many of them were hard to tell apart! the buffet tables were quite dirty and we noticed that "fresh dishes" were just dumped over stale ones and stirred in! the sushi was dreadful all in all the worst buffet I have ever been to anywhere in the world

“GREAT FOR OLDER KID'S BIRTHDAY PARTY”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We visited Day's in Bournmouth recently to attend an 11 year old's birthday party. We were a large group of 20-ish and were seated together at a long table. I was near the end so had no trouble getting in and out but it was more difficult for those seated towards the middle of the table.
The food was very good, tasty, hot and varied. There was an extensive oriental buffet but also Indian, Seafood, Sushi and fresh cooked noodles to order. It was replenished regularly. We visited at lunchtime on a Bank Holiday Monday and it was very busy. The staff were certainly earning their money! The décor is interesting and the restaurant itself is vast. The candy buffet went down very well with the kids and despite a vast array of deserts, I mainly stuck to some fruit as I was pretty full by that stage!
We all enjoyed the food - it is a noisy, buzzing place so don't go for a quiet night out - the kids loved it and for an older child's birthday with friends it is ideal. The facilities were clean but it was a long trek downstairs with an injured knee - there may have been a lift - I would ask next time.
WOULD RECOMMEND.
