Myself and my partner were on holiday in matlock and went to China rose and chose the buffet menu. Initially we arrived at 6pm and were turned away by the chef as there were not enough staff there until 6.30 pm. (Note the website states the restaurant is open from 5pm)! So we returned at 6.30pm and were seated in the odd restaurant - lots of tacky Chinese accessories everywhere. Dirty/dusty and no atmosphere. The waitress was a couple of minutes late for her shift and the chef shouted at her behind the bar which was incredibly inappropriate as everybody could hear.
This waitress was very friendly and laid our table for us, however the cutlery was DIRTY. We stayed to eat as we were so hungry. Food wasn't actually too bad for an all-you-can-eat. Hot and sour soup nice and couldn't really fault anything else. Shame no duck on the menu - for 14 pounds I would have expected this.
If we return to the area I will not be eating in the restaurant again.
