Lots of choice but a little expensive switch drinks.

Plenty of choice and usual buffet food quality. Don't expect great flavours but always hot and replenished. Can be a little expensive with drinks too for kids.

Second visit to this restaurant, but will be the last. It has gone down hill very quickly. They say we have over 100 dishes every day but I only counted 67 and that included the sweets in the desserts. Every thing was over salted. The plates and knives and forks was dirty. Very limited choice of food and when it... More

The food was greasy n salty, the staff obviously didn't want us there (acted like we were holding them up from something else to do n this was lunch time) the selection was poor and once something had gone it wasn't replaced so the selection got less n less. To top it off I was made to pay full adult... More

On a day trip to Exeter, we decided to give the £6.50 a head Saturday lunchtime buffet a try. It's in a huge room but was full of customers and had a large choice of dishes. All served piping hot (China Express in Yeovil, take note). I unusually don't pile my plate, but take a sampler of each to see... More

If your hungry and no time to wait for preparation this will be perfect. There is a wide selection of hot food along with sushi and a small Japanese selection, it is low cost and if you chose you can eat as much as you can. If your looking for great Chinese food then probably not the place for you,... More

food isn't the greatest, but always plenty of selection and always hot. Prices are cheap and staff polite. Definitely a place to have your lunch whilst shopping in Exeter.

Have visited here on a number of occasions with friends. The food is okay, nothing to shout about, the main plus point is the choice and variety that is available, over 100 dishes to choose from in the evenings. The price can be a bit steep, especially if you have more than one drink. Also you have to spend £15... More
