I've visited on a few occasions this year. While there are many Chinese that offer a greater choice, Chapter 8 has a relatively small range, freshly cooked - and at an excellent price. I can't understand the odd comment or two about service - being a buffet it's self serve!

We needed a table for two and we was sat under a stairway right next to a party... More

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I visited with the intention of having the lunchtime buffet and were told they were closing an hour early because they'd had a busy day!! Great!! We went back today with our 5 year old... Who isn't a fan of Chinese food and just wanted a Prawn Cracker. We told the lady... More
