We went for a family meal out the food was great but after we finished our food my dad tipped one of the waiters and she said they don't even get it it goes in to the business so he said that's not right fair so he got his money back and we finished our drink and left
Waiters and staff should get tips

Dear Shane

Thank you for your recent comments regarding your visit to our restaurant. We appreciate any and all feedback from our customers.

In response to the issue regarding tips please note that as we have various waiting staff working the same tables it is difficult to give individual tips to each member of staff as each member spends a different amount of time with each table and customer. In order to combat this we have a system in place where staff receive a bonus each week and this takes into account various aspects of their work including tips. This bonus is paid regardless of whether they work on a weekday or weekend and whether or not they actually receive any tips during their shift(s). So they may actually receive a bonus even when they have not received any tips during the week.

I hope this helps to clarify this issue and look forward to seeing you in the future.

“Very Very Good!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Visited on Saturday evening and chose the buffet option. Lots of choice and top quality food. Nice atmosphere. Really can't fault anything. We will definitely be back.
One note of caution however. We have been for Sunday lunch buffet which is also excellent with a little less choice and only £5.99. Unfortunately also attracts a different clientele.
Worth paying extra and enjoy the evening.

“Good Chinese buffet”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Tucked away on Water Street opposite the coach / car park Kong's is an inexpensive restaurant offering good food at a very reasonable price. Looking for somewhere for Sunday lunch my wife and I spotted Kong's and decided Chinese would be a nice alternative. The restaurant is small but nicely laid out. Clean well appointed
The lunchtime choice whilst small was ample. Choice of two soups, nice selection of starters, nice selection of mains and (unusual for a Chinese -as they don't seem to do dessert other than fruit cocktail & ice cream) a good selection of desserts.
As you would expect go back as often as you want.
We were met with a warm friendly reception. Chose where to sit. After explaining the layout left to eat and converse uninterrupted. Great service as the staff were vigilant in clearing away for you but were very much in the background so you don't feel hassled. The staff were great and you were left to enjoy at your own pace no hassle.
I would highly recommend checking Kong's out. Idesal for a lunch especially as a refreshing change to traditional Sunday lunch as we had been out the previous couple of weeks. Better value than most Sunday lunch pubmeals at £5.99 for a Sunday lunch buffet.
