I've been to Lamoon many times over the years and they have recently switched to buffet only style. Some colleagues and I went today to take advantage of their half price offer (£4 instead of £8 for lunch) and we were pretty underwhelmed. Lamoon used to do a great lunchtime offer at around £7 for two courses or the option to order as much or as little as you wanted. Now, it's £8 flat rate and the food was average at best. Another point is that the size and shape of the restaurant does not comfortably cater for buffet style. It's too small. I miss the friendly waiting service and good food from days gone by!

Very nice friendly little family run place, very good fresh food at a good price, they don't use additive msg like everywhere else and don't skimp on quality ingredients, they are also very happy to take your order any way you want it.

Very disappointed on this return trip. The menu hasn't changed much but it didn't live up to expectations. Good portions, starters were good (spare ribs + soft shell crab) but the mains were not as enjoyable.
A very odd wine list, could not figure out some of the descriptions and not good value.
The service, although pleasant and friendly, was not up to scratch. We were very surprised when a party came in with a reservation for 7 people and they didn't know anything about it? (The large, round table was covered with family debris). Were the usual staff on a family event or holidays? (We certainly didn't recognise any of these guys).
A bit let down, hope the next visit is better.

Never been in the restaurant, but regularly use the takeaway service. We live in Dulwich, which tells you enough about the local Chinese, that we need to order from Sydenham. Its good, and the price is reasonable. Its not up there with Chinatown, but having food that's made a 3 mile trip, it ticks all the boxes for me
