Don't ever go. It was terrible. The food was cold and disgusting and the service was awful. The buffet had limited choice and wasn't appetisisng in flavour. They had no soft drinks left at 6pm, when the resturant opened. We booked a table for 5.40, which they suggested, upon arrival the resturant was shut and didn't open untill 6. Due to this, the suprise we had planned for our friends birthday was ruined due to a problem made by the resturant.

Went here on a Groupon deal. Arrived with no expectations after reading all the reviews, form the outside the restaurant looks promising. However the food is a letdown, the choices are very limited and the quality of the food is poor. Staff seemed generally uninterested, however the manager on duty was very friendly and helpful. Would not recommend going here.

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!!

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!
