Great Selection of Food

There's a wide variety of food, the only problem is some do not taste too good or are cool. For what's available I find this place expensive.

I honestly don't know where they source their food from? It is truly an 'amazing' feat to have found the lowest cheapest food on the planet and then offer it up at a restaurant level pricing." Shame on you!".

First of all, make sure you go there hungry. You pay some standard money to eat as much as you like. There are a lot of different cuisines and foods to try. Also, as a vegan I really liked the fact that there were indications about vegan-vegetarian foods. I tried a lot of foods I haven't tried before (indian and... More

I'd been recommended twice about this place so I thought for my sisters birthday i would treat her. Booked a table for 1pm. We arrived at 1245 and were seated right away. The waiter asked us if we had been before I replied no and he told us everything we needed to know which was nice and helpful. We tried... More

Went out with friends for a night out in Nottingham, absolutely amazing place, great food great atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was brilliant, so much choice and tasted good for the price. The staff were friendly and sat a big group of us (20) within 5 minutes. Really enjoyed my time there.

Been eating here for many years! It's never had perfect service or food but normally good. But visited this dinner and wow such a transformation, in all the bad ways, the service is shocking with most staff in non-uniform, the food has drastically lost quality and variation, there was only 8 starters compared to normally 10 just for the Chinese...
