As far a buffet style restaurants are concerned this is top notch. The venue is impressive and you get into the vibe of word buffet at first entry. The menu is self explanatory. You can walk around all the food tables and quite easily decide what you want to eat and try. You get about 6 different kitchens including Italian,... More

I would normally avoid any buffet type venue but my son wanted to go here. I must say the service was great and very friendly and the food on offer was as good as normal restaurant you would pay 3 times as much money for. Would recommend for families as lots of choice.

The place can seem very dark, however the food when found was appetising. As a veggie who eats fish, choices were there however not obviously apparent and limited. Rishika, the chef at the Italian food counter made a great Seafood pasta, which you can choose many varieties of other pasta's made in front of you, to your very own specification.... More

I have been visiting this restaurant once a year for 10 years before it was recently sold. On my first visit since the sale I found it ok but the great selection that was on offer before has been cut back though there is Chinese food to be cooked before one's eyes, Indian food already cooked and an English roast...

A colleague recommended this place and I am very glad he did. This is without any doubt the best all you can eat restaurant I have been to. So many choices of different types of food. I literally begged one of the waitresses to kick me out as i felt i was about to explode and couldn't stop eating :-).... More

We walked in without a reservation but we're given a really warm welcome at the front desk. We were seated immediately. The food was hot, the service was fantastic & I will definitely be back. It was our first meal out as a family in years & well worth the wait.
