Visited for the eat all you want buffet.

What I liked so much about this restaurant was the fact the food was not on display in a hot plate. Each person can order whatever they want from the buffet menu. As many dishes as you can eat. But not necessarily all at once. We spent 2 hrs there taking our time ordering when ever we felt like... read more

We used to go to this chinese restaurant a couple of times a month. They had a very good value Tea Time buffet which was just right for myself and my wife, with our daughter and her 2 children. Sadly the buffet is no longer offered, making the meal rather expensive. The food has always been good - wether on... More

I ordered a take away, waste of money and it wasn't cheap. I'm finding it really difficult to find a decent take away locally even the ones I have been going to for years seem to be cutting corners and using cheap products now. Tai O is no different looking at the menu the items sound good but the food... More

Visited this restaurant for my sisters birthday last week, the lady server was rude and abrupt, she wouldn't help us with any questions we had. She enjoyed making us feel uncomfatable, we ordered some jugs of water for for the table and she took joy in slamming everything down. After ordering off the buffet menu we got shouted at multiple...

We visited twice on our recent stay, once eating in and once for a takeaway. The buffet is such good value, yet not laid out, but cooked freshly for you, genius idea and all our choices were excellent. The Staff were wonderful, attentive and helpful, and we had takeaway on our last night which again was absolutely lovely and very... More

We have been eating here for almost four years and always enjoyed the quality of the food and friendly atmosphere from the staff. We have recommended the restaurant to several friends. On this occasion the quality was very disappointing, we went for a banquet, with the starter the spring rolls were soft, very greasy and this continued with the so... More

A superb evening with family. Great food, excellent staff, very nice atmosphere. Only downside for us was the wine seemed to differ from what was on the menu and there seemed to be only one bottle of each left. But a definite yes overall.
