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.

When I stay away in the area on business, I ALWAYS eat here and have been doing so on a regular basis for over 10 years. The welcome, the ambiance, the decor is first class...as is the choice! I would, as a rule, avoid a Chinese buffet like Ebola.....but not here. The starters are beautifully presented,freshly cooked and delicious. The... More

okay thought we would give it another go - just to make sure it was as good as the last time - well that is our excuse ! We arrived on the off chance mid week that we could get a table and boy were they busy - we counted 8 large parties already there plus almost every table filled... More

Good food and very attentive service. Select your starters, a middle course and then, God help you, your mains. If you are not full at the end of a meal here you must be Jabba the Hutt

This place had been recommended to me, I finally got round to going the other Sunday lunch time. They do have some fab furniture and obviously a good out look over the lake, but to be honest it does look a little tired inside. We did get seated near the entrance/kitchen door so maybe not the best place to sit.... More

What a great Chinese restaurant! Four of us went here to celebrate my birthday in April. We had a lovely, big table and our orders were taken quickly. Food arrived in good time, and, as it is an all-you-can-eat-for-one-price, we ordered quite a lot too! We managed to eat our way through it, and, upon paying, the manager even offered... More
