“Where do we start”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2013

I hadn't been to this restaurant in ages and can't for the life of me think of why .on returning the buffet was gorgeous ,plenty of starters and main courses freshly cooked plus a menu if u would like to be served or have steak .this Chinese restaurant is both friendly and great value for money and I can't wait to go back .

“Awful food.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2012

This place is typical of the buffet culture thing that is ongoing in Dublin at the moment. The food that is served out to the self service platters is at best, well below the standard you would expect. I doubt that the prawns in filo pastry are even prawns at all. I think they are pasta, that have been marinated in fish stock. I reckon your tummy, the next day is a good indicator for the food you have eaten the previous day. And mine was not great after being here. You have been warned.

“Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2012

Visited here with a friend. First time here thought i would try it out. the food is pretty good there are many dishes to choose from .when i was there the restaurant was really full. there was no seats left but the girl at the counter (manager i think) got us a table in the end. good service and friendly staff . it didnt seem like there was much people on duty as the restaurant was literally full and there seemed to be only two people working but the staff was still friendly and had a good attitude towards customers. ill be backk. oh and a well deserved tip from us.

“Rip off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012 via mobile

Myself and 3 friends went to the princess garden last nite. I had been there years ago and remembered it was nice. Well it's changed a lot now. Compared to other " all u can eat" Chinese restaurants now, this a a total rip off. Only about 10 dishes to choose from, that's including starters. No boiled rice, no chips and no desert or €16.95!!!! I couldn't believe it. There was only 1 choice of sauce (sweet and sour) and it was kept "warm" in a electric pot of some kind that u would find in ur grandmothers house. The food was cold, we were the only ones there after another table left at about 10 o clock. No atmosphere at all. Never again.
