We had a family meal / celebration, on their buffet night. To be honest, food quality was reasonable, especially as it was from the buffet menu, but it wasn't great. I would not have been happy to pay normal menu prices for that meal. Duck was not hot, salad was not cold, 'seaweed' wasn't nice and crispy. But service was... More

We thought we try the local Chinese around the corner from where we we live. On getting there the reception was ok. We asked for a high chair for our 14months old the respond we got was so cold. The customer service was really terrible the staff acted like they had never seen a baby cry before. I wouldn't recommend... More

We enjoyed our all you can eat buffet, although I have to admit I agree with others that the portions are smaller and have got smaller over the years. Our duck order was tiny! If they could improve on one thing it would be by employing more staff, they clearly were understaffed and completely rushed off their feet. I over... More

We popped in for the Sunday buffet in the evening. It is large inside with nice decor although only one toilet. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful and quite an extensive menu, but if anything service was a little slow.

The food was good, great to have a buffet where it all comes out fresh. A bit pricey at £18 a head really. Was it worth twice the price of one the cheap buffet style chines restaurants you can visit................in a word NO.

Keis used to be a regular haunt when we lived just up the road in Maiden Place but it must be 15 years since we last ate here. We visited for dinner to celebrate my eldest son's 14th birthday on Good Friday as he had expressed a desire for a Chinese. Overall we were not disappointed, the food was great,... More

Nothing much to say really. The food was very average and most dishes had mystery reformed meat or perhaps it was tofu, who knows. The lamb dish actually tasted like beef. Of the starters, the deep fried calamari and smoked chicken could have been one in the same thing, just different colouring used, even the staff didn't seem know what... More

My wife and I went for dinner on the 22nd March at 7.30pm. Welcome was good and first course came out quickly. Then it started going downhill. Had to wait 40 minutes for the duck to come out - and there was so little on the plate it looked like someone had eaten it befoe giving it to us!! And... More
