We (and by "we" I really mean "my aunt") were looking for some cheap place to eat in Chinatown on New Year's Eve. Yeah, I do already know that the the words "NYE", "cheap" and "restaurant" don't usually go hand in hand - especially in touristy areas like this - but go tell that to my uncles!
So, we found this... er... lovely place and, enticed by the "all you can eat" buffet offer, popped in. 12 £ each, up-front, in cash, no questions asked. Is this place run by the Triads or something? 'cause the interior doesn't help much, it's so '70s Tarantino would kill just to shoot a scene inside that restaurant. Anyhoo, back to the review... once at the (very narrow and dimly lit) table, I noticed a sticker that read something along the lines of "we reserve the right to charge you for any left-over you don't eat".
I can't help but wonder whether they were going to count every the crisp we left... and if so, were they going to recycle them? Alas, this question shall remain a mystery to everyone but the cook. The buffet itself was nothing exceptional - there was all the standard stuff you'd find in every Chinese restaurant - and wasn't that tasty. The duck (or was it chicken?) was cold and full of bones, the rest was just OK. But the service! While the young waiter and one of the older women were pleasant enough, one woman - once she reckoned we were nearly finished - immediately removed our plates and kept saying "bye-bye" a lot (my cousin counted no less than 16 times). All right, but if you really want ot kick us out, well... you'd better kick us out!
All in all the place wasn't that bad, but I wouldn't go back.
