We ate here before a trip to the theatre because it would be quick and satisfying. It is a buffet style restaurant with a set menu at £6.95. The restaurant was busy so the there was a great turnover of food. However, the dishes were limited and no desserts on offer. The food was hot but quite tasteless and bland... More

I visited this 'restaurant' with my daughter at the weekend & was dreadfully disappointed. The food was tasteless & cold & after a few mouthfuls, we decided not to finish our meal. I asked to speak to a manager & was approached very rudely by an elderly lady who wasn't in the slightest bit interested in what I had to... More

It is no exaggeration to say that this is the worst restaurant I have ever eaten at. My friend and I were foolishly attracted by the £6.95 buffet deal in the window! All I can say is there's a reason a restaurant is so cheap on Shaftesbury Avenue. The food is bland, tasteless and borderline dangerous; the staff rude, unwelcoming... More

A buffet style diner on wooden benches. Nice to see some Chinese eating there which is always a good sign. Food was pleasant even though not loads of choices but hot and tasty. Defo value for money and left with a full belly which was needed after a day of walking about. Is basic but you get what you pay... More

Well, where to begin. You can see the buffet slection from the window outside so people can't really complain about lack of choice. When you enter the establishment you are greeted by rude staff who barely speak English (you would expect a customer facing role to have this as a requirement surely?) and it's kind of a charade to understand...

Went to London to see a show and needed to eat lunch. I fancied Chinese so we walked around for a while. Prices were very varied but menus seemed similar. Wanted a buffet so I could eat what we wanted. Not the biggest selection but what they had was well cooked and hot and regularly replenished. Bench sitting is not... More

Now, the reason I went here with my partner was to celebrate my first paycheck in my new (and great) job. Since I had to take a sizeable pay cut to get this job we didn’t exactly go somewhere ‘fancy’ but I have not been to a Chinese buffet in YEARS. So, we went to Little Wu in London’s Chinatown... More

Most disgusting Chinese food I have ever had. There was very little choice and what was on offer was rubbery, cold and tasted plain. AVOID!!!!!

£6.95 for as much as you can eat buffet. Ok so the food taste was average and the table was a bit sticky but 24 hours later and no sign of doggy tummy so seems to have passed the test. I had half an hour to eat before a show so rather than stress about getting served in time this... More

Arrived to Chinatown and was drawn in by the cheap buffet. Upon arrival, was herded to the counter to pay and then rudely seated by incompetent staff. The food was honestly the most REPULSIVE garbage I have ever put in my mouth. Honestly, I should have saved my money and gone to mcdonalds. Witnessed a cook walk out of the... More
