Tea at 6pm buffet was £11.50... Shown our table in a corner next to badly condensed windows and food splattered on the walls. Ordered drinks and started on the buffet. We were stood next to another couple who were complaining to staff about the quality of the food. The staff claim to speak poor English and we were warned by... More

Felt as if staff didn't want us there. Very abrupt and unfriendly. Food was cold. Some congealed dishes. Cake was stale. If health and safety were to test temperature of food im positive it wouldnt pass as edible

All I can say is do not visit this place at all. The food was cold and tasted of nothing at all. Please see the photo attached to see the decor next to our table. Absolutely filthy

I have chosen an overall rating of 'very good' as this applies to not only the food, but the location, cleanliness, staffing and waiting times etc. The restaurant is very clean and efficiently located away from the busiest part of Middlesbrough. Still on a busy road but easier to get to than say, the Banana Leaf (don't go there, it's... More

We went here for a works night out and were surprised to find there was no table service for drinks and that we would need to queue each time we needed one. Not a big issue but it would have been nice to have the option for drinks to be ordered from where we were sat with our food. Selection... More
