This place is ok if you want a buffet meal, the selection of dishes was not great at all but i went for lunch, maybe dinner would be better. Im not tight at all but i feel £4 for 2 soda waters is a little expensive when most restaurants/pubs will not charge anything, max i have ever been charged before is 30p!! End of the day its only a bit of fizzy water, its the syrup thats used in soft drinks that costs them the money and i didn't have any!! Don't think i would go back but i would say give dinner here a try, might be nicer.

I would suggest the value of their version of a carvery. I took some 40 odd party last year: very friendly and admirable choice. You will not be disappointed.

Decided on this place as I like a buffet. We arrived about 6pm which is important if you don't want to pay to park there. The restaurant is actually in the car park but Weymouth have taken an enlightened view and made parking free in the evenings.
We were welcomed and seated nice and handy for the bufffet. There was a reasonable range of Chinese dishes, a few Indian dishes, a soup and salads counter plus a few chips which the kids may like but is not the selling or strong point for me. Food seemed quite hot but this was Saturday evening and the restaurant was fairly busy so fresh supplies were being added as they were cooked in the open kitchen by the bar.
They obviously cater for parties and an area of the restaurant was decked out with balloons and banners for someone's birthday. The bar has a good range of drinks although we opted for the green tea which was quite good value. Service was a bit average when busy as it took a few minutes to get the bill and the rest is pretty much DIY.
If you like a buffet and chinese food mainly, this place is fine.

From the outside you'd be forgiven for thinking this venue was some sort of riverside greasy joes, but you couldn't be more wrong.
Situated on the riverbank just a stones throw from Weymouth's main bridge, this little restaurant has a lot to offer anyone who loves the taste of the orient.
From the moment you walk in the door the aromatic aroma that wafts to your nostrils in a delight to your senses.
Offering an impressive selection and range of oriental dishes you won't be disappointed and only the most fussiest of diners could say there wasn't sufficient choice to be value for money.
At a mere £12 per head, (£8 lunchtimes) it's great food and real value for money.
The drink prices for a restaurant were also reasonable and the friendly service from the constantly smiling staff make this a venue we will. Definitely be returning to.
One opportunity for improvement though is the sweet selection is not part of the main pricing, and comes at an additional cost. A small selection of low cost deserts might just have resulted in my giving this lovely restaurant an overall 5 rating instead of 4, as not everyone wants to fill up on savoury starters/main courses.

Had meal here this Sunday and food was delicious as always. This is my one of the best place and I am now regular customer of this restaurant. Tried Momo (Nepalese dumpling) this time and was delicious. Highly recommended and will be back soon.
