The price can be a bit steep, especially if you have more than one drink. Also you have... read more

I love it here. The staff are warm and friendly and nice to my children. It's not a gourmet dining experience, it's an all you can eat buffet and judged on that, it's excellent. There are karaoke rooms to hire within the restaurant, the loos after always clean, the best time to go is in the evening, Monday to Saturday.... More

I went to Buffet City in Exeter with my friends hoping for a good day out. Even though the food was okay, the people who served us hardly interacted with us and didn't talk to us at all. Halfway through the meal, we wanted to order drinks so we planned to order some FREE tap water. Turns out that you... More
