Really good buffet. Staff don't keep tips.

Very tasty food and plenty of choice. Really good value. Highly recommended. Very friendly service, ashame that the owners of the place don't allow the service to keep their well earned gratuities. They MUST change that ASAP!

After many friends ranted and raved about this place we finally decided to take the plunge. Wish I never bothered. We were shown to our table by a polite and friendly young lady and then it went down hill rapidly. A waitress came and took out drinks order but she was more interested in seeing what the woman on the... More

This is the first time we've been where I haven't given it five stars. Usually it's excellent but today the service was a bit slow and the food was over-seasoned and luke-warm. It's a shame because we've never had a bad meal.

I m going to this restaurant as often as i can and every time i enjoyed the food there! Very good value for money-drinks and food. A Tip-the dinner menu is way better than the one at day time.

What a great deal.... pricewise you just can't fault it.... so many different foods prepared and presented to perfection... The Standard of service exceeds expectations for the price you pay...A very big THANKS to Edwin and all his staff for another excellent example of value for money above and beyond expectancy without sacrificing quality and service...

One a few all-you-can-eat buffet style restaurants around, this one seems slightly more up-market than some of the others and concentrates on pan-Asian cuisine rather than absolutely everything. The staff seemed friendly and helpful, although you are of course left to just get on with it yourselves to a large degree. Starters were ok, although most of the options were... More
