Sorry not impressed

we took our three granddaughters here as they love to "graze", sorry not impressed at all. We went because several people had advised us to try it, we didn't find it particularly cheap at £11-50 adults and £5-50 kids plus exorbitant soft drink charges. Selection of food not bad, but not that well... read more

Lots of food in the buffet, but not all of it was freshly made, we think. And afterward one of us swelled up due to something in the food. Too much salt, MSG, or what, we don't know. Stay away from the BBQ pork. Chrispy duck was good. If we're back that way we shall avoid this place.

Used to go here and it was always Ok but after my latest visit last week I think its gone down hill and my expectations have been raised by my visits to another Chinese in Stockton on tees. We arrived about 5.30 so paid the full £10.50 price and for what we managed to eat I think this was a... More

Not been here for a while and definately won't be coming back. I have been to plenty of cheap eateries but this one needs a wake up call in how to do it well. Even though more people arrived no fresh food was put out and what was there looked like it had been there since last night! In all... More

Food was very good, no complaints and very reasonably priced. Went down very well with children who could choose what they wanted and how much. Only complaint was that it was very cold in there.

I have been going there for years,and although the food is good the staff have completely no manners.I don't think they know the words please and thank you they seem to think they are doing you a favour just serving you. On the other hand the staff at the Banana Leaf just down the road are so hospitable.

Not impressed by the food. should have been hotter and there wasnt alot of choice. Staff stood around looking lost as there wasnt many customers-wonder why. Decor was okay but what really spoilt the look was a awful canteen table and chairs with table numbers cellotaped down with brown crusy edging. It should be warm and welcoming but it wasn't.

10 of us came here for a birthday treat, all 7 adults and 3 kids had a great feast and the food was nice, I LIKE my food so got more than my £10s worth, something to eat for old and new. I'll go again
