"Fake Coke", such as FAKE title AND FAKE review. We will not tolerate some irritating competitor to leave their Fake review here. We need you to know that we have reported this to TRIP ADVISOR about the same person who did such a stupid thing here . More

Yum! My husband, daughter and I really enjoy eating here. There is always plenty of food cooked fresh to order and delivered quickly. The staff are always friendly and polite. We have eaten the buffet and had a takeaway from here and each time we have not been disappointed. The only thing that lets Kachina down is that the drinks... More

Thank you for spending your time to write your feedback here. Yes, we got to admit the chicken that we use are 90% chicken. In the past,we used to do with 100% chicken for deep fried purpose but we had a lot of negative feedback from the customer saying that the chicken is very hard and tough. That's why, we... More

Recently went for the buffet with a group of friends... The service was great, with staff being attentive and friendly... Food was delicious, and at a reasonable price. You can order as many starters as you want, and then get a choice of one main course or dessert per person. Only criticism would be the lack of rice/ noodle dishes... More

On holiday with my daughter, fancied Chinese......found Kachina on the web. Superb buffet Chinese, order from the menu and it's freshly cooked for you. Portions are just right and the flavour is excellent. Duck comes as a starter and is pretty big and tasty for buffet (paid more than the buffet cost for just duck in some restaurants). As a... More

Friends and I visited one evening for a buffet dinner. Dishes were freshly cooked to order and very enjoyable. We had a few rounds of starters - all of high and consistent quality - before moving on to some tasty mains. Drinks were overpriced, but aren't they often? It didn't detract from the experience, and everything food related was exceptional... More

Someone once said to me that on review sites the 5* reviews are written by the owners and the 1* by disgruntled staff. I rarely give 5* to anything. But the Kachina deserves every one of my 5 stars and probably a few more. I took my soon to be in laws for a meal with my soon to be... More
