“Lovely Little Place”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

Visited on a works day out. A very nice 'all you can eat' buffet. All the dishes were very tasty and hot. Not disappointed at all. I definately would visit this place again when I'm back in town.

“Inexpensive and tasty”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 via mobile

1st night in Cardiff and spotted this place next to our hotel. It looked good from the outside and we weren't disappointed. The staff were polite and helpful and attentive. The food was delicious. I guess it is no more than the regular Chinese buffet but that is its strength. Decent food and price, what more can you ask for?

“Great place, great price!”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 via mobile

£11.90 when we went this week, and the food quality was great. Yes, its 'british chinese' - but if thats what your in the mood for then go here! Spare ribs, s&s, curries, fried rice, prawn toast etc etc. Lots of unusual dishes too, and deserts.
Next door to cinema which was handy for us.
Staff very helpfull and friendly :-)

“Little Gem”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Visited the restaurant with my wife and 3 children last night, excellent choice of dishes, that were all hot and the staff kept checking to ensure hot and that their was plenty of food. Drinks were good value, the restaurant was incredibly clean, the staff on duty were really nice and friendly, nothing seemed too much trouble, a nice choice of deserts too which pleased our children, as did the lolipops when we was leaving. Many thanks we will be back soon.

“Bare disgusting”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

Not edible, so much salt and sugar in everything. It's all like desert, all meats are overcooked and left under hot lights for ages to get worse and worse. Sushi is a joke, salmon was brown. Everything looks and tastes like dangerous, seriously, I've eaten in a place called China China which got shut down for health and safety violations and it was 10x better than this place.
Staff need an attitude review, after complaining and being disagreed with my girlfriend said "customer is always right" to which the manager replied "I don't know where you come from but that is not the case in this building". We had eaten none of our food and were expected to pay. We left our details and are expecting to hear from the civil court.
