We have been going to chows dynasty for the past couple of years now and I happened to come across these shocking reviews on here. Chows dynasty serves up the best buffet in the area! The person who said they left feeling starving, we'll you should have ordered more as it is an 'all you can eat' buffet!!! Anyway the food is always so good in there, personally recommending the crispy shredded chicken. Yes the staff sometimes are not brilliant but they will come over when you grab there attention. The prices are good and we would definitely recommend. I honestly don't know which restaurant theses other people are talking about! Maybe you mean kams palace or the real china!?!

We live close to this restaurant so thought we would give it a go as a change from our usual take away place. The menue seems to incorporate all the usual suspects and a few more veggie options which is ideal for my partner. Upon arriving the food instantly didn't look like any other Chinese I have had and the two dishes I had tasted pretty much the same. sauces were gloopy and bland with egg friend rice looking more like someone had accidentally dropped some scrambled egg in boiled rice. All in all wasn't impressed and won't be trying it again.

I have been visiting chows dynasty for the last 5 years on almost a weekly basis both for take away and eat in. The food has always been fantastic with a friendly and professional service, i always choose this resturant over others in the area for this reason. Thankyou chows for supurb quality of food and service

We live locally and used to frequent this place about 5 or 6 years ago and food was really good.

Tonight we went for their buffet and it was really poor.
The place used to have a nice ambience but now the walls have bruce lee pictures, and the ceiling has lots of plaster where lightbulbs have been removed and needs painting. The music playing was depressing and on a very short loop.

We ordered from the buffet menu and every dish was poor with the exception of the egg fried rice.
Several things were not cooked and had to go back, and they just seem to have given up.

We paid almost £40 for some of the poorest quality Chinese food I have ever had. Even the takeout side of the business was dead with hardly anyone coming in for takeout.

I am not sure if the place has changed hands in the last few years but its so much worse than it used to be and we would never return.

Went for the buffet, where you order food before it comes out. First of all, the portions are tiny - which would be fine but despite the restaurant being empty it took so long to get the waiters attention to order more. The time between meals was ridiculous. Secondly, the quality of the food was shocking everything from the chicken to the rice to the seaweed just wasn't right! Was in there for about two hours by the time they managed to serve us our final course. Still left starving. Highly recommend you go elsewhere.
