My first visit to this place after having been turned away on several occasions due to not booking a table and they were very busy. This time I booked the table and went with my family (3 adults and child). We were shown to our seats which were in a nice part of the restaurant and close to the main... More

We go here a lot and I can say that their freshest food is served on the weekends on a Friday night. Unlimited sashimi for all those fish lovers!

Poor day today for a visitor to Terra Cotta. My wife and I were in Leicester today and fancied a quick lunch. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, however, my better half is a big Chinese fan and we headed over to Terra Cotta. As it was Lunch Time it was your standard 'all you can eat' for...

Like some other reviewers, I'm not a big fan of Chinese buffets. Others I've experienced have been a bit monotonous and flavourless, greasy and sometimes cold. So the quality of the food we enjoyed at a family celebration here this evening came as a very pleasant surprise. To be honest my first impression on entering the already busy restaurant was...

I would highly not recommend this restaurant to anyone! When going to get my tappiyaki, i was waiting 15 mins, after that the cook was about to put the noodles in my plate, I asked if he could put chilli and garlic in it, his response was "it's too busy I'm not going to put it on, if you want...

Excellent selection of food which is constantly replenished, the Sushi bar and Tepanyaki cookery are both superb.

I don't like Chinese buffets in general. The food is rarely hot and I always wonder how long it's been there for. Terra cotta, is fine for a cheap Chinese out with the family. The stuff they cook fresh for you is good but desserts come up short.

Usually go to another buffet in the Highcross centre, but someone mentioned this place to me and as it was 2 minutes away from where we were staying, we walked up. It has a nice facade, but you could very easily miss it and there were stairs going down, no lift that we could see..check if you have mobility problems.... More

We have been to terracotta a number of times and have never had a bad experience. Every single time, the food has been consistent the staff are attentive and courteous. The teppenyaki bar is always a treat. Make a reservation at the weekend though as it gets a bit crowded.
