We tried Kachina again after we noticed a change of management and were pleasently surprised. The food was delicious (ribs fell off the bone cleanly and chicken was succulent). The starter combo's were piping hot and cooked to order. We gobbled so much we didn't have room for a main. This place is definitely back on our menu. We booked... More

I've been here many times for the evening buffet and never been disappointed, but tried the lunchtime buffet for £8.50 per head. There's a good choice of all-you-can eat starters, but what was brought to the table wasn't what we'd ordered! We asked for the vegetarian samosas...the waitress didn't have a clue what we were asking for despite us pointing... More

Having heard great reviews of this place from friends and family finally got round to dining at Kachina, we were not disappointed either.... Food well cooked, hot and nicely presented!!!! Service spot on but not obtrusive. A great way to finish the weekend!!! ( more importantly these days value for money too!)

Very good service, hot food and reasonable atmosphere although not sure about the musac! Quick lunch that included a drink, a starter and a main came to under £12 for 2; a real bargain. The only negative was that the place was not well heated.

I love going into Kachina restaurant so thought the takeaway would be the same.....NOT SO! I ordered a takeaway and I was awful. The chow mein was tasteless, the chicken balls tasted warmed up, the chips were undercooked and the shredded chicken had a ridiculous amount of sugar on it. It was very expensive for what we got. The only... More

I visited Kachina for Christmas meal with friends. We were given a selection of starters, including a separate platter for one of our group who was a vegetarian. As usual, the food was excellent. The service was good & we had a very enjoyable evening. I think we might have been the last people to leave that night! Roll on... More

I could sit and wax lyrical about Kachina or instead you can just go get a thesaurus and look up “amazing”, “incredible”, “fantastic”, and “tasty” - all the synonyms will adequately describe Kachina. I always have the buffet here - it’s very good value for money and if you book at least two days in advance you even get a... More
