“We enjoyed it!!”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 via mobile

Having read previous reviews on here we were very weary about going... But we got it on a Groupon deal for an evening buffet and thought what the hec... Give it a go!
The shopping Mall Whiteleys in Bayswater is a minute walk from the tube station so its easy to get too...
When we arrived it looked deserted in both the Mall and the food area was this a sign??
Noooooo it wasn't it was great!
Food was hot,plenty of it and all was extremely tasty!!
The dessert choice was a little less than previous all you can eat Oriental buffets we have visited but what was on offer was tasty :)
We would visit again for sure!!

“Terrible place - never again”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Made the mistake of going to this place as we were plannign to watch a movie at the cinema nearby- never again! Some of the worst food served by the most incompetent staff. Dishes were cold, tasteless and positively slimey. Ended up giving feedback to the manager whosen response was that she had no control over her chefs! Sums it all up really!

“Horrible food and service - AVOID!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Probably the worst food i have had in London. Cold, Bland, Stale and just generally slimey. Staff really unhelpful too and when we spoke to the manager about the poor quality of the food, all she cared about was whether we are going to pay or not!!. Better to go hungry than eat here

“Avoid!”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We visited last night with a Groupon voucher. The food was cold, staff were unhelpful and unfriendly. The hot plate of supposed chicken balls looked and tasted more like mince meat.
