I went to Peachy Keens for the dinner buffet as I really wanted to find a good buffet. I do enjoy trying different types of foods.
The restaurant itself was nicely decorated, there is a pub section adjacent to it and there were work colleagues enjoying the football.
Now for the food itself- I was disappointed with the lack of selection and variety.
The starters included onion rings, peri peri chicken (which was nice) and spicy wings and fries. However, for the sheek kebabs, you had to ask the chefs for them- they were not made whilst you wait, they were already cooked but kept behind the chef cooking station, so you had to wait until they saw you, and ask for the sheek kebabs and then tell them how many you would like. I felt a bit uneasy at doing this because I did wait a few minutes for someone to notice me and then they were not welcoming or very pleasant so you felt bad to ask for more than 2 sheek kebabs! They should really have them available as the other dishes are.
For the main courses, there was one chicken curry, 1 lamb curry, aloo gobi and lentils and rice- the usual suspects. I have been to other buffets and there were more than one dish of each therefore catering for people's different taste buds; sadly this was not the case here.
There was one live cooking station ( I think the branch in Nottingham may have more, on the website it describes many cooking stations, but it did not specify how many and in which branches), the chinese cooking station for chinese. .
It was lacking variety and excitement, I want to feel excited at the thought of trying different tastes.
The salad bar was decorated lovely, and there was alot to choose from, but I am not paying money for a salad- that is just my opinion though.
So, all in all, I was disappointed in this buffet and I got bored. It is a shame because the staff were helpful and had a good sense of humor and were available for any questions.
