Just come back from a late Sunday Lunch for my Birthday @ Izumi. Found it by accident via google as our previous choice for chinese had changed owners a few years ago and it has gone down rapidly judging by the reviews, so we decided to try this one. Fantastic value for money, staff pleasant, food fresh and hot, lots of choice and the dessert table was the best I have seen for a buffet including a chocolate fountain. Will definately go back, it also have a 5 star rating from the cancel for health and hygiene which is a big plus.

Izumi is our Chinese of choice when eating out with friends. The food is good with plenty of choice. The staff are helpful and on hand to clear plates as soon as one course has been finished.

We stumbled across this place a good few months ago and it was a complete breath of fresh air after struggling to find an edible and enjoyable Chinese buffet in Essex. The food is always lovely, the price is reasonable ( we could do with a loyalty card though!), it seems a bit out of the way so it has a nice feel about it and is always peaceful when we go. It is not an exceptional experience but it is just what we were looking for and I'm reluctant to convince other people to go there as we would like to keep it to ourselves!

Ate here on Saturday food was nice and large variety. We pre-booked, we are a large family of 36 and asked if they would offer a discount for the numbers. They said they would. When we were there we were asked what drinks we wanted, we replied all tap water please. This is because we do not drink alcohol and there was a lot of children. The response we got was disgusting! First we were told there was not enough glasses (we are talking about a restaurant that wasn't even half full and they didn't have enough glasses). We soon found this out to be a lie and was told by management that we were expected to pay for drinks at the bar and that was why we got our discount. After being made to feel like we were in the wrong they did honour the small discount. We spend over £400 for a meal that last less than an hour, most of which were children and didn't eat more than one plate yet we were expected to pay more. Not happy with the customer service we received and left feeling very under valued. I wouldn't recommend for large parties or groups, in fact I would only recommend for animals, as you will be treated like one.
