Not good <Vegetarian>

Visited the place yesterday. Food was very oily. Though the menu is good, the taste was average. Ladies finger not sorted before cooking. I ate dosa, naan, vegetables, rice, dal-tadka and deserts. Nothing was impressive enough for any kind of special mention.

Now, I'm a borderline food snob. I ended up at Jimmy's only because work was paying for lunch. A big multi-cuisine all you can eat is only going to disappoint, right? But, pleasantly surprised. The food was tasty. Excellent variety. Not everything was brown. It was hot (too much to ask of some AYCE buffets). A the puddings were nice... More

We have visted a number of times and it has gotten worse but last night was by far the worst. Poor choice and what they did have was either burnt or well under cooked. The dessert station was not chilled and everything was warm, including the cream in the tarts. No sign of anyone when we wanted drinks. Final nail... More

We were table of 6 eating at about 9 pm . Kitchen staffs were in rush to clear and clean kind of things. So we ate whatever was left rather than what we really liked. Staffs shortage, always new faces, always adverts for vacancy. Not properly taken care of. We could hear an argument amongst kitchen staffs. Overall terrible.

Took family out and all of us was disappointed, we will not go back again and if I could I would give them 0 stars. I don't usually write reviews but our experience was very poor.

We have visited Jimmy's twice and on both occasions we were very impressed. I am really sceptical that restaurants offering such diverse cuisine can deliver authentic dishes, but somehow Jimmy's does; judging from the live food stations that is most probably down to their employing chefs who are very familiar with each particular region. The Chinese section has a live... More
