“Not nearly as busy as it should be”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

We love Bo Zan, and can never understand why it's often quiet inside. Family run and the menu consists of traditional, very tasty, Chinese food - the all-you-can-eat deal is an absolute steal. The buffet has now gone, so you get plates delivered to your table ordered in batches. Excellent crispy duck, ribs highly recommended too. This place very much deserves your custom!

“Lovely meal”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

We went as a group of 4 for an early meal before a gig at The Globe. The restaurant was quiet but it was just after 6pm. We took the option of the buffet menu, which is ordered item by item and is cooked freshly. There was a wide range of dishes, including Peking duck and king prawns. Everything was hot and well-cooked and well-presented. We eventually spent nearly two hours over a relaxing meal with Emma constantly replenishing the tea that we thought went best with the meal.

Well worth a visit !!!!!!!!!!!1

I am a regular customer od this chinese Buffett on sundays between 12 and 3 PM. Home cooked food and traditional atmosphere for 6 pounds are really worth it! Highly recommended!

Every item is perfectly cooked and even if the choice might seem a bit limited everyone should find his favorite dish
