Good value and read the good recent reviews.

I think there has been a bit of a turn-around here as the buffet seems to be well run and well topped-up and any service required is quick. Some of the food isn't the best Chinese but some of it was very good. It still costs only £9.95 (or you can do a take-away for £5 per carton of what... read more

Such a lovely transformation! What a great job they've done. Really impressive. Greeted straight away and seated quickly. Drinks came quickly too. Food lovely as ever. Hot and restocked regularly. Always a nice atmosphere.

Following their closure for refurbishment, we were looking forward to going back, having been previous regular diners. How very disappointing. The whole place was very dirty with builders dust. The tables are crammed together, and despite going quite early, and not many people before us, there was no chicken sticks, no satay sauce, no egg foo young, no chicken balls,... More

I loved it but sadly it has been closed for 3 months and no info when it is to open again! However the choice was vast, the food was hot and very tasty. I cant wait to re visit as soon as it re-opens. It is also very reasonably priced.

They've been closed for a few months for refurbishment and wow what a change. Spectacular new restaurant environment. Much higher quality feel to the place. Food absolutely excellent. Huge choice and freshly replenished. Monday was day 2 of their reopening and you couldn't get in the car park at 7pm. By 7pm there were 150 in the restaurant. The price... More

Food is always hot, go early enough and food is always topped up, decor is dated and place could be cleaner but I HAVE NEVER suffered from an upset tummy after visiting and though we don't go too often usually because of the clientele when we do we always enjoy the food. Excellent value for money, read my reviews I... More

Love it here, always have, always will. Can't wait for the refurbishment to be complete and open again, you can never go wrong with this place, if you go there starving you'll always leave full up with the wide range of starters, mains and desserts. It'll keep everyone happy and you'll wanna return for more and make it a regular... More
