Really nice evening buffet. Very warm welcome from staff, couldnt fault the service. Nice choice of starters, all of which were very tasty, and of course its an all you can eat buffet so you really can try everying! Definately worth booking a day in advance to get the discount, good value for money. Impressively busy for a monday night.

I have been going to kachina for years and have always recommended it to friends and family. Food has always been delicious, unfortunately over the last year it has gone dramatically down hill. The last 4 take aways have been inedible. Chicken satay and chicken balls have been pink. My favourite dish, shredded chilli chicken is like chewing tin foil... More

We dined at Kachina tonight and opted for the evening buffet option. We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit, staff were so friendly and welcoming. Food was delicious and probably the best Chinese meal I've had! Will definitely be back! :D

We used to live in Southampton, and then we visited Kachina almost once a week. Now, when we are back on holiday, we always have to go back. We always go for the buffet, which is good value for money. The food is served quickly, and very tasteful. The staff is friendly and attentive. We love this place!

Freshly made to order, no self-serve... :) The 'Buffet' menu is under the glass sheet of the table to tease your taste buds! Excellent value for £15.90 per person .... can order starters and eat that as a main! As many as u can. ... one main or go straight to dessert.. didn't even get that far! Service was top... More

The staff here were very friendly right from the start. The food was gorgeous and cooked freshly to order not like some buffet places out there that make food and just leave it lukewarm to fester. I have been coming to kachina for years now, and I will not go anywhere else for my Chinese food. A great evening had... More

The closest thing to 'Chinese' about this restaurant is the Oriental staff, who's lack of English is more irritating than quaint. The food is very much Western interpretation of Oriental cooking, down to 'main courses' being a choice of meat, and then a choice of sauce for it! No genuine Chinese dishes on the menu! Okay for philistines who have... More
