“Really nice food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I like these type of places; a wide range of different food flavours and textures, and as much as you want to eat. We were thinking of going to a pub meal, but everytime I remembered eating at one of these places, I remembered the disappointment. So we ended up at this place. My first two plates had sticky ribs and chicken satay. The chicken was crispy on the outside and really tender on the inside. Then I had a couple of plates of crispy duck. The food tasted great and the staff were helpful cleaning the table of used crockery.

The muscles and different types of curries were nice, if a little too salty. The various sweet and sours were strong as well.

The desserts were ice cream, cake and cream.

Just typing this up and I can't wait to go back again. Recommended.

“good meal deal.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We ate here for the first time today. Having eaten in several similar cuisines with the meal deal off, this was just o.k. My husband had the chicken Thai curry, which lacked subtle sweetness and the lemon grass, it was also a bit powerful in the chili heat. I would have liked something in the fish department other than just prawn toast. There was fish fingers, which seemed a bit out of place in an oriental buffet? I did enjoy the Tofu and mixed vegetables, which were nice and crisp, but over all everything could have been hotter. Seeing as we were the first to arrive, the food was luke warm, which was a shame.

“Ended up with bad stomachs”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

When there with my wife and kids all seemed good until later that night when both my children were in agony with there stomachs sickness followed by the runs
I my self have had this too and I have what some would say cast iron stomach
We noticed that when food was running low instead of taking the metal container from the serving cart and replacing it with a new one the simply keep putting new food on top of old food so the food at the bottom could have sat there all day which by the looks of it did give this place a miss plenty good places to eat in Tonbridge for the some money of less

“Great value for money”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

A Malaysian, Singaporean, Nepalese, Indian and British buffet. I have been here many times and can't rate this place enough. There's always a large range to choose from and the meat is meaty, proper decent sized prawns. I love this place. They heavily rely on the savouries as the dessert is quite basic but I'm always stuffed. A clean establishment and polite staff. I haven't met anyone who's dined here and not like it.
