“Okay, not the best”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

It was a nice place but quite over priced for what it was as when we went, a few dishes has ran out and weren't replaced. Also, the staff were nice but weren't very helpful as they didn't all speak a great deal of English. Our plates were left for a long time and the woman who was sorting out the cakes was rude and shouted at my friend who went to get a cake because she didn't see the sign that said you can only have cakes after 5pm. Apart from that, food was nice and the decorations of the place were nice too.

“Excellent especially at night”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Lovely selection of hot chinese food, large selection of snacks, salad and then loads of variation of main meals. Much better selection of the evening, day time is a smaller selection but still adequate!

There is a section that will stir fry meats and vegetables for you, if you like to be a little healthier!

And the Finale.....the Pancake station :) with icecream and a hot chocolate fountain machine- YUM YUM!!!
