There wasn't a lot I liked there. There wasn't much choice of English food but I suppose that's why it's called China buffet king.

On passing this "restaurant" we noticed a member of staff scrubbing a disgusting dirty container in the side street. They then tipped the contents down a drain in the street....If this is what they do in the public eye what goes on behind closed doors.....

overpriced for what cheap food it is. Desserts mediocre some scoop ice cream and swiss roll. Pretty sure its against the law to charge before you eat altough you will understand why they charge once you've ate there. Found a hair in my food also

I think this is only restaurant in the country that insists on payment before you are seated are they worried the food may not be of good quality that you may refuse to pay

This was our second visit here after having a fantastic first visit. Restaurant was quite when we arrived which was fine. Food was drying out after being under heat lamps for so long. What we did eat was nice but we had to take the food from underneath the top layer. We had just finished our desserts and were chatting... More

Food was good, me and my friends went on my birthday! It's one of the few restaurants on that road where 14-15 year olds don't need adults! We always go early and quiet so the food should be full anyway and it's worth the money if you like eating! To improve, I think the staff need to be more enthusiastic... More

I love Chinese buffets, but this one is regularly cold, staff make u feel uncomfortable, and it's overpriced on an evening.

I don't think I've had the misfortune of eating out anywhere this terrible in my entire life! Visited this den of iniquity earlier today. Was shown our table which was greasy and sticky. The wall behind our table was covered in grease and what looked like stale tomato soup. Knives and forks were disgustingly mucky. Had to polish them on... More
