Visited this place for the first time on bank holiday Monday. Well what can I say apart from it was bloody brilliant. Excellent service top notch grub and pleasant atmosphere. I used to say pilgrim house was good but this knocks spots of it. If I had one minor comment it would be the slightly slopping floor in gents toilet... More

Sadly disappointed There was only three tables dining when we visited and yet the food was still coming out only warm and the ribs were dry and tasteless It's such a shame is it used to be such a lovely place to dine but clearly the drop in standards is showing in the lack of customers

We have had several really good take-aways from this restaurant over the years (see my other reviews) but this latest one was poor. The chicken with cashew was under-cooked (pink) and the crispy-sea weed was very very salty which ruined the whole meal. The duck dish was much better. Delivery was quick, but I would rather have waited longer and... More

I visit here often for both lunches and dinners and have never been let down. The food and service are good, plus it's reasonably priced. The only let down is the prices of the drinks, but I guess this is where they make their money.

We've used Kachina as our Chinese takeaway of choice for many years now and venture in for the AYCE buffet on occasion. The buffet is exceptional value and the staff are always very welcoming and hold the door when you leave. The restaurant is fairly small though rarely busy when we've visited. This isn't "wow-factor fine dining" but the food... More

We had the buffet here on Saturday evening. The service was excellent and the food was piping hot and tasted freshly cooked. It's served at the table, unlike a lot of buffets where you help yourself and either have to wait for items to be replenished or end up with dry over cooked food. Would recommend this place and will... More

Food mostly deep fried or reheated not fresh. Waiting staff very brisk and unaccommodating. Shame as this used to be a welcoming place. Won't be going again.

My wife and I visited Kachina on a rare night without the kids and opted to try the evening buffet. On arrival we were seated downstairs at the back of the restaurant which was a really nice setting and fortunately away from the larger groups at the front of the restaurant who seemed to only be able to communicate by...
