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

OK. So 'all you can eat' restaurants get a bad press along the lines of 'food sits there for too long; it's not as good as a 'real' restaurant;food gets cold' - and a dozen other stereotypes. This place breaks all these rules. The food is terrific. It gets replenished as fast as people can get out of the kitchen.... More

Ok so shame on me for wanting an all you can eat buffet, but I'm glad I chose Oriental touch. The food wasn't just plate after plate of beige and lots of the dishes were better than I get from my local takeaway. The staff were attentive but not too much as to crowd us. The next time I cave...

I visited this restaurant recently due to seeing their £9.95 "all you can eat" dinner offer. I was warmly welcomed and I started to eat promptly. The food was lovely considering it is a buffet! There is a huge range to choose from including crispy duck! Very clean and well kept. The drinks were slightly expensive but expected in such... More

The second you arrive at the Oriental Touch (or as I now call it, the 'O/T'), you are rushed to a plastic table and before you've sat down, a drinks order is taken IMMEDIATELY. This makes a pleasant change from frustrating and uncesessary drink-delays at posh non all you can eat establishments. Then the fun begins. Wander up to the... More
