I ate here several times, before the much better Pan Asia opened nearby; then I realised what I was missing out on. They have reopened under a new name SizzAll, and quite frankly, it' worse. There is absolutely no table service, you pay on entry, and the quality of the food is as bad as it was when it was... More

Well there is clearly a reason why they closed. Food bland and rats! Other places in Plymouth are much better and more points on the cleanliness !

We came two or three years ago and it was a bit of fun. Lots of people there. Huge range of food constantly replenished and a bit of a buzz. Then it became less popular, the food was less varied, often drying out and the cleanliness left a good deal to be desired. This week having been to a new... More

This place is now closed. Went there when it first open and it was very good. Slowly the food became blander and it didnt seem as hot as it could be. Also when waiting for a stir fry to be cooked you could see ihto the kitchens and the cleanliness at the end left a lot to be desired

Plenty of choice in this restaurant. Food was fresh and hot. Enviroment was clean. Staff was excellent, cleared plates quickly, and checked every 15 to 20 minutes to see if everything was ok. Prices was good.

Went their for a family meal out,food was cold and the only thing I liked there was their chocolate fountain. The toliets weren't the best standards and the staff weren't very helpful at all!

Used the water dragon a few times with friends and the food has always been good. Sometimes the replenishment seems to be a bit slow, empty containers tend to be left for a while. the place lacks atmosphere and is like a works canteen, the waiters / waitresses are quick to take the initial drinks order, but it's very difficult...

I am not a very fussy person when it comes to food and service, however i ( and my friends) were all SO disappointed after eating at this restaurant, and would actually recommend that you NEVER go here! The buffet food had clearly been sitting there for hours and was all stodgy! after saving myself all day for a good... More
