After having a few beers In pub over road decided to have a Chinese
Went for the £14.99 option
Can't complain about the food which was very nice what dishes we had
The place could do with an upgrade but overall you get what you pay for

We were looking for someplace different to have lunch, so we stopped in here when we saw the buffet advertised on a board outside. The restaurant was clean, but basic. The decoration was primarily Chinese wall hangings, and the background music was contemporary Chinese pop.

The buffet system is order at the table and individual dishes are brought to you. There is a basic menu at just under £11, and an additional menu (including all the seafood dishes) at just under £15. The food was tasty and, as it is all you can eat, plentiful.

The waiter was pleasant and sought to serve, but nonetheless did take some of the orders wrong. While not a major problem, as what was brought was good, it wasn't strictly speaking what we ordered or expected.

All in all, good food, average surroundings and service.

Pretty basic place with efficient and polite staff, and average basic food which tasted okay, which as you can eat as much as you want for just over a tenner, means a good blow out for very little. If you want cordon bleu fancy oriental food or nouveau cuisine Hong Kong style or celebrity taster stuff then this isn't the place to come. This is café nosh served up to fill a belly, not provide a conversation point. Hearty and simple. With a good price tag for the hungry.

After a friend recommended this place a few weeks ago, I finally placed an order to takeaway.
Plain chow mein = Very plain
Crispy chilli beef was mixed with sweet chilli sauce and not very appetizing.
BBQ sauce was a colored slightly salty liquid that didnt make it onto my plate.
Salt and pepper prawns and chips were ok but not great.

Whilst abusing my friend for my ruined dinner he did point out that he ate in and not takeaway.

I did call to ask if these dishes were always like this, i was informed that it was without any apology

Admittedly it was a Monday when we visited which tends to be a quiet night , many restaurants are closed on Mondays.
We were alone all evening in here though apart from takeaway customers dropping in.
Decor and seating very dated but that's ok if the food makes up for it
Sadly it didn't - bland, tired and tasteless in the main and ingredients didn't appear very fresh.
Duck and pancakes was ok but soup, fried squid and mains disappointing.
