It is seldom that I struggle to find anything good to say about a restaurant, but this is one such time. We popped in tonight for an unplanned meal. There was no greeting at the door and were shown to a table without a word of welcome. In reply to "what do you want to drink" we ordered two Diet... More

Met by surly lady who offered us drinks then just left us. The buffet was old amd tired - the plates were cold - but when I explained that I have a shellfish allergy there was no attempt to advise which foods I should avoid or consider. Hot plates came but then were taken by the miserable staff who sat... More

This is a popular Chinese buffet restaurant.. There is a great variety of dishes, something for everyone... you can replenish your plate as many times as you like. the same goes for soft drinks. well worth a visit.

After the mouse problem was in the local paper and close down we heard they had re opened better than ever. Yes you could notably see improvements but the dirty toilets say corners are probably still being cut and it won't take much for the four legged visitors to re appear again. Food was sitting too long before being replenished.... More

Back again last week, the restaurant again was a delight to come to. £48.70 for two adults, two kids, 3 fruit shoots and 2 refills, not cheap but not bad. Food is still a very good standard and a wide range to choose from. Kids enjoyed it especially the deserts with the sweets, will be back!

Following a recent visit to Real China Dickens World Chatham We were very disappointed in the overall quality of the restaurant. We took a look at the menu outside and decided that we would like some sweet and sour pork. We entered the restaurant with immense difficulty as there was no access ramp, is very challenging with a heavy powered... More
