We visited earlier today, on a Sunday at 5.30pm. We were a group of 8 who decided to go as a treat. We arrived to be shown to a table which we had pre-booked. One group of guests arrived early and had started eating already, but we arrived a short time later. It took us about 20 minutes to get... More

Went here for a birthday treat, just 3 of us. Nobody came to take out drinks order. The Mongolian Barbecue was lovely - really fresh, well cooked and flavorsome. Pizzas were fresh as were burgers. Everything else was revolting. The food in the bain maries looked like it had been there hours. Dried out sauces, soggy vegetables and grey meat.... More

We normally go to red hot in Leeds but whilst in Nottingham we thought we'd try this one. Love it! Great food. Lovely staff. Burgers to order and Pancakes! (Which leeds doesn't have). Came out full and very satisfied! x

My daughter has been banging on about going to this place for ages. (largely because it has a chocolate fountain). You are met by a lady who asks how many you are and radios down to say that three people are on their way. We therefore expected to be met, but weren't. We sat down at a table and waited.... More

Wow. My first visit to this place and wow it is amazing. I'm not a great fan of spicy foods but here you can have just about anything your heart desires. I was like a kid in a toy shop. There was so much choice and all freshly cooked. The wide choice of food is unbelievable. If you left this... More

This was my first experience in this type of restaurant and as a vegetarian I was a little anxious. The occasion was a family meal to celebrate a birthday so it was not my choice. The buffet is huge and my carnivore friends found plenty to eat. The vegetarian dishes were well labelled having green nametags as opposed to red... More

Have been 3 times now and I absolutely LOVE it, as does everyone I've taken with me! The food is out of this world as is the selection. Service is quick and always with a smile. Can't rate it highly enough and hope to visit again soon!

We took the children on a Friday and it was great value and eat as much as you want. Remember to use your cornerhouse card or student card for discounts. Children get to go back for free at the moment if you complete a passport card!
