Again for the price you can't complain. Food is regularly topped up and of a reasonable quality. Interior still on the basic side. My only gripe would be all the staff could do with going on a customer service training course, which with any luck might teach them CUSTOMERS are more important than CANDY CRUSH. I will return.

We just sat down and the chinese girl came out to fill up the trays at the buffet. Well, she mixed the fresh and left over rice together. Completely put me off and didn't eat a thing.

This is restaurant where you pay an entrance fee and eat what you like. Not cheap compared to others but not too expensive. The drinks, however, are. A bit like a diner in the lay out and to too cosy if this is what you want.

We complained about their buffet as some of the food were left out for ages. When asked if they would bring out a new set, we were told that all the old ones need to go first. Not so pleasant experience.

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

Had a Buffet meal. Very disappointed that the food was only luke warm!( didn't help that the plates were cold!) mentioned to waitress that the food wasn't very hot. Management came and explained that the food is kept at the correct temperature and any hotter would carry on cooking or dry up! ( wish I'd had a food thermometer with... More

Greasy looking buffet. Passed and had soup and noodles. pricy and mediocre - on the other hand, its Dover and there are not a lot of alternative. Service without a smile.

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
