“Temporarily closed Summer 2013”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

I was disappointed at the end of August 2013 to find the MAO closed on a Saturday evening . Closed for refurbishment , from July I think the notice informed . It was cheaper than local Chinese buffets but not up to their culinary standards . I always came away refreshed and satisfied . Try the pot of Chinese tea, without milk and sugar . Attentive service . No fuss . See my other review .

“Very Average”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

The quality of the food was disappointing and dishes not filled quickly enough, some of the meat was very chewy, but then it is a cheap place to eat.

“I like it but not everyone`s taste”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

Open 12 to 10 pm daily , to 11 pm on Friday and Saturday . It used to close on Tuesday, not sure about that now .
I have patronised the MAO for a few years and always enjoy the choice of serve -yourself trays . Last Saturday evening I had three plates of main meal and two of fruit trifle, ice cream and scrumptious filled cakes . The trays are not named . They are regularly replenished . It was busy, a birthday party, a hearty atmosphere but can be almost deserted at lunch time . With a pot of Chinese tea it cost me £8.50 . Casual dress . They also do fill your own take-aways .
Polite and attentive staff . I reckon three or four stars for the MAO.
