Me and my girlfriends went for a girls night out. We chose the Joy Fook for the buffett and dancing. The food was lovely, music good but staff unfriendly, miserable and nowhere to be seen. That should be looked into as impressions are very important.

Well found this great Chinese restaurant by
.y mistake. As it's quite hard to find. It's by a golf course, and no the golf balls don't land up in your dinner when the golfers tee off.
Any how it's a little bit pricey, £ 15. 90 on a Tuesday it's € 10.90. However the meal is not a buffet as such, but all you can eat of the menu, which is freshly prepared for you. You better not be in a hurry through, as the food takes a long time ro come, and that spoils it in a way. The food is delicious when it eventually arrives, by the time it arrive yawn, you've probably put the milk bottles and the cat outside several times. And don't even think of ordering more food, as that'll take just as long yawn. Oh if you manage to order more food then good luck to you, as it'll probably reach you by morning time, if you're lucky. The price is raver high and not worth the money. The waiting time is tiresome, and that's when even when the restaurant is not busy. Don't know what to think if the restaurant got busy through, you'll be advised to bring your bedroom nite clothes with you, slippers and tooth brush ect, as I'm not kidding, you maybe spending the night there.

Been here several times now on a Saturday, for the Buffett and disco.... The food was ok, but the service very poor... No sign of any waiters to order drinks, had to go to the bar ourselves... Plenty of waiters across the other side... Did complain about this, but they didn't seem too bothered...

It's not all as bad as people make out, thoroughly enjoyed the food, ordered way too much so definitely got our money's worth.
We were the only table in the restaurant but that was no real issue. Staff were friendly and very helpful with my elderly grandmother who is in a wheelchair.
Drinks are overpriced though..
Had to send one come back because it tasted completely like coke flavoured water, obviously very watered down. Second one was a little better but not much.
Overall not much to complain about really, standard Chinese buffet

Basically if you would like to go somewhere that is half decorated, with poor food to be surrounded by chavs then a Saturday night in Joy Fook might be right up your alley. The place literally looks like a fire alarm went off half way through the paint job and the decorators never came back. The food is average at best, for £18 I found the buffet rather expensive taking into consideration the quality of the food. Overall bad bad bad, I would much rather spend £10 more and eat somewhere decent. Avoid.
