“Brilliant food”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

we have been a few times to the restaurant. The food is always fantastic. A large range to choose from. You get loads of meat too..for the price the value is amazing..the lemon chicken was so so good..I wish that they could open a place in seaburn because it really would make a killing! Lovely friendly owner ..warm welcome and great tasting food...a true gem.

“A little disappointing”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 via mobile

After reading the reviews I've been dying to try this place. In fact everyone I've spoken to recommends it. Went yesterday and was unimpressed. Cold chicken curry that tasted really bland. The beef in oyster sauce was really tasty but I won't be back in a hurry. The place was packed and service was slow. Which means if you did pay for the buffet you'd be waiting ages to get served again.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 10 December 2013 via mobile

We visited Borneo today on our office Christmas lunch and were very impressed (one of our party had been before and recommended it). When we arrived the place was packed with a mixture of customers buying takeaway lunch and customers dining in. We opted to dine in so we could have the all-you-can-eat option to try and sample as many varities of the dishes as we could.

The place seemed really clean and well set out. The variety of curries, rice and noodles were set behind glass and served out by a friendly and helpful chap behind the counter rather than everyone helping themselves which was good. Between us we tried Jerk Chicken, Beef Rendang, Filipino Pork, Thai Yellow Curry, African Beef Tagine and crispy chicken but were too full to try the rest. It was delicious and we all agreed we will return again soon.
