Top quality Chinese food at very reasonable prices. We chose the buffet menu. The portions were generous and every dish was piping hot, well presented and delicious. They even tweaked a couple of dishes to fit our particular taste.

A great meal and good value for money

We found this place as close to our hotel. The food was amazing, we tried some new dishes and all the food lovely.
We visited on a Sunday at 6pm, our party of 7 was seated and starter orders taken. 2 and 1/2 hours later we finished our 4 course all you can eat buffet. A bit too long to wait for our mains but the food was good when it arrived and the place was packed. It was £15 per adult and £10 per child plus drinks on top. Our final bill was 3 figures. I would defiantly recommend as the food is what matters x

booked meal for 10 later in evening to avoid causing to much disruption, wasn't too busy on arrival. Some how we spent from 7.30- 11.30 waiting around for food Drinks order taken 20mins later drinks arrive. 40 mins after arrival starter order taken. 1hour and half in starters arrived. Another half hour before mains ordered, I'm mean time all parched as second drink order still hasn't arrived. Mains arrived 2.5hours in! Absolutely shocking they were not mega busy, no apologises that they may be a bit slower they could see we had a child in tow, mum and child didn't finish meal and left mid way through. Land rover show is every year at same time, if it was a staffing issue plan ahead!

good food loved that we all ordered one dish and shared. Although not an all you can eat buffet as I would know it, limited to one meal per person. No forks available not great for kids, chopsticks only. Decor is fantastic. Friendly staff when you actually see them.

Went for a family birthday on a Sunday. Went for the All you can eat Buffet, which is actually served at the table. The food quality is really good and the portions very generous, you can order what you like , everyone in the our group was really impressed and we all staggered out of the restaurant. Great Experience . You may question was why I have not given an "Excellent Review" , well the restaurant could have been cleaner, it needs a refresh , the toilets are tired and not particularly clean , also we had a baby in the party and there was no proper baby changing facility , not difficult to do as the toilets are quite large and just needs one of these baby changing devices which folds down from the wall. Surprised it not all ready there as this restaurant is next to Billing Aquadrome where loads of families stay. As I am now a grandfather I will be looking for these facilities wherever we go. Don,t let me put you off . staff are really helpful and friendly, food is great , location is great with views over the marina, if you are in Northampton and fancy a Chinese give it a go.

Great selection and two different options - main menu or Buffet - we chose buffet which we ordered at the table - the service was a tad slow but they were busy. The food was plentiful, hot and delicious. Waiter seemed a bit stressed but then the total w**ker on the table next to us was sooo rude to him everytime he went to their table - it was understandable. Drinks were reasonable and coffee was good. The restaurant looks out over the marina and it was a lovely summer evening. Really worth a go and we will be back !
