“Not very relaxing!”
Reviewed 20 February 2011

The restaurant may appear good value for money but one plate of food for £13.00 is not good value! There was no atmosphere on the night I attended with a large party because it is just too busy and not very relaxing, the seats are uncomfortable and the lighting is too bright. I think the idea is to to get you in and out as quickly as possible.

“Average Fare”
Reviewed 27 August 2010

This chinese buffet restaurant is on the opposite side of the road to the Royal Hippodrome Theatre.It is a very modern design.It does not show the meal prices outside,so i had to go in to find out that it costs £11.99 during the week.I found the starters a bit disappointing as there were hardly any.There only soup was Chinese and Sweetcorn.Sushi is for some reason hidden with the desserts.The main courses are all very standard and all very average.Nothing special or unique.the deserts are acceptable but the Choclate ice cream in the freezer was so hard it was almost impossible to scoop into my bowl.In all a very average sort of a meel.I asked a waitress for the bill but itwas clear that she could not understand english.I wuld probably try othere restaurants in the town before returning here.

“Variety of Asian food - buffet style,in relaxed atmosphere.”
Reviewed 15 July 2010

Small restaurant near the seafront - on street parking difficult.Modern decor, very clean. Welcoming, friendly staff. Chinese, Japanese and Thai food - I thought a limited selection of each, (which is why I rated value as average) but what I ate was good - meat vegetarian and seafood ( prawns) I did not see any fish dishes on each of my 2 visits which I found disappointing..A good selection of desserts as well as ice cream.
Food prices are fixed, the most expensive (at the weekend) £12.99 pp but you can eat as much as you want. I don't know how alcohol prices compare.
Not for a romantic date as "Happy Birthday" is played on a regular basis but it is child-friendly so a good place for a family meal. relaxed, unhurried atmosphere
