We found this on a recent stay over in to Dover. We decided on the buffet, after been shown to a table, the waitress took our drinks order and we, helped ourself to the buffet. I must say I was a little dubious, as never sure of buffets and having a funny tum. There was a lot of choice and... More

My wife and I went here for a cheap meal and basically that is what we got. The place is quite large and boxlike. With fairly utilitarian furniture it has a canteen feel about it, with not much atmosphere. There was a good choice of starters with old favourites such as such pancake and sesame toast. A good choice of... More

Came here for 'quick' food before meeting someone. It's ok, if all you want is quick food. Obviously by 8.30pm nothing is as fresh as it could be, and for nearly £11 I really think they could offer much wider choice. Can't complain too much, it's a buffet and you don't expect top notch. Atmosphere, dining room. No real ambience,... More

came in a group for a friends birthday we all had a great time and was a relatively good value for what we got. We are big eaters so loved the buffet. Staff were nice to us aswell. Definitely best Chinese place in Dover.
