We have dined here several times and, whilst not outstanding, have found a plentiful variety. It is a great pity we rarely find many other patrons present who would add to the atmosphere.
However, the restaurant really excels when it comes to take aways and home deliveries. Portions are large, of excellent quality and are piping hot. Several freebies thrown in. Probably the best take away in town - well done!

Attempted to eat here today, hair was found in the prawn toast. Lettuce was not cleaned properly for the pork yuk sung. Also the pork yuk sung looked like tripe...:/ Food has no flavour what so ever. Everywhere and everything is covered in muck and dirt. fluff was found in chowmein. Cutlery was not clean. We ordered 3 cokes and they was as flat as a pancake. (rolla cola) Flys are everywhere with food not covered to protect the food from the flies. ie flys land and vomit on food (not good) Called the manager over and said food was not up to standard and offered to pay a token amount but he still insisted to pay all of the money which was 14 pound a head. And he had none of it so we told him to call the police. They came, we swapped details and then we left. Absolutely disgusting I would not let my dog eat there. Just hope we don't have food poisoning :/ overall a complete shambles of a Chinese restaurant

A reasonable cost at £10 per head and a good choice with friendly staff. It did feel like being taken into the back canteen as the buffet customers are clearly not allowed to eat in the pleasant front house restaurant!

Over cooked and very greasy food, we called in as the place looked good,
We were suprised to the restaurant so empty on a Friday night at 10:00 PM, we soon found out why, its a buffet style where you can eat all you like, which take it from me wont be much. Far to much MS and sweetner used in the cooking trying to make second rate ingredient taste better.
I was not sure whether to eat the meat or nail it to my boots!
They had the cheek to charge £10 for for two small bootle of Tiger beer.
Never again!
And finally the gave us a bill for the over cooked mush they called Chinese food, £36.::00 plus drinks for out and out rubbish.
Such a shame as both my wife and myself love food from the Far East normally.

Excellent value for money, very warm welcome, nice selection of food on the buffet tables. Perfect place to take children to introduce them to new foods.
We've had children's parties here and would highly recommend!
