Have visited this restaurant many times but took friends for a birthday bash on Saturday 24th January as they loved it there and had always had good service. Well they have changed their opinion now as we waited one hour for starters and then another hour for mains, no drinks were offered us in this time, we had to call... More

I cannot complain about the food it was fresh and well presented. If I was to complain it would be about the time it takes to be served. We were seated for 2 hours 2 minutes and we still had not ordered mains, there seemed to be a 1 hour gap between courses! Manager offered an apology and a discount... More

We went to this place on Saturday night under a booking at 8pm. I cannot truly say if it's victim of its own success or the pile it high regardless of quality dinners had settled for night.  The waiting staff weren't attentive and the prawn crackers were as stale as the service. I don't think it's acceptable to wait an... More

Was told about this by a friend this afternoon. Decided to call on spec & although they were fully booked they managed to find us a great table. It was ultra busy and the atmosphere was great. As it's an order all you can eat (not a buffet) the meal can't be rushed but it's well worth waiting for. The... More

Fantastic food and service as always. I've been coming here for a long time. I drive from Bedford for the good quality of food and the high levels of service that Steve and his team provide. Good value for money and always a know what to expect. You may have to sometimes wait longer during busy periods but it is... More

This was one of the best Chinese meals I have had. The service was excellent and the ambiance was good. We booked (which is advisable), and our party was very happy with everything. We had a serious diabetic with us and Steve the head waiter was very good in making sure that nothing had any sugar in it- it is... More

We live locally and visit the Oriental Paradise for a treat every now and then. There's a great selection of dishes and we're never disappointed with what we have. When feeling mega hungry we'll go for the banquet, three stomach-bursting courses of delicious food! Portions are quite generous. Gets very busy at weekends and special occasions. They also do take... More

Poor service! We have been here so many times ! This time was for my 40th. Poor. 7pm booked. Starters and middle ok. Mains were at 10pm. With no drinks since 8! Left us with nothing. Ruined my birthday meal. Don't think we will be visiting again.

As a midway between the Midlands and Hertfordshire a great find. The buffet provides a great range of dishes for the family to share. Other reviewers do provide fair guides and indeed the view over the lake is an added bonus.
