When in the area always head here, fair price for fair food. As others have said, you get what you pay for, but compared to other buffet, this gives a lot more variety. Dad who does not like Chinese will eat the curry. Which allows my partner and me able to eat there, and try dishes we probably wouldn't touch.... More

The place looks more like a food hall in a school, they have wanted posters inside the door of people that haven't paid! Once we ordered drinks they were all just piled on one end of the table rather than placed in front of us! We went up for the buffet, nothing looked remotely appetising! Took a small plate of...

The rules for this restaurant were very clear. When i went there last night, the food was very good, it is what it is, a low price all you can eat chinese buffet. I pretty much ate my own body weight for a tenner, some items on the menu were better than others, but thats a simple matter of taste.... More

When I think back to what I normally spend on a Chinese meal at a restaurant, the Buffet City was a revelation and showed that you can still find great Chinese food at bargain prices. You have to go the length of Exeter's main shopping street, heading West and cross over North and South street before dipping down to find... More

When shopping in Exeter, there is no better place to have lunch. Always good value for money, I have never known any waiting time, and always a really good range of dishes, including deserts. I always enjoy a buffet, in any town that I am in, but this is one of the best for value/variety

Buffet city is all you can eat Chinese at low prices. If you want top notch food go la tasca.(now closed due to over priced) We have been there many times over the last few years never had a problem. If people want discount for children and it's a measuring system put up with it or pay full price. So... More

BE WARNED if you intend to eat here and especially if you have children. We were purposely misled that we were taking advantage of Buffet City's half-price offer if we were booked and dining before 5pm. It was only when we asked to settle our bill that we were informed we had to have “eaten and paid our bill BEFORE... More

Be warned. Misleading pricing for this restaurant. Arrived at 4.30pm before "cut off time of 5pm" believing would be charged lower price but charged full price for our large party. This turned out very expensive as many children in group who actually, as some kids do, ate probably only a few chips. Feel management need to make this clearer and... More

This had been until tonight our must go restaurant for family parties and other then a little confusion over the bill at the end we always walked away satisfied. But tonight while my wife was tucking in to some chicken balls we realised they were not cooked in the middle but was to late as she'd already eaten some. Apon... More
