Quantity not Quality

You really do pay for the quantity not the quality here. Its a generous buffet, so many different dishes to choose from but all of them average. The Indian has to be the best, but could easily pay the same amount for a generous take away of better quality. The Italian pizza is pitiful. Looks... read more

The food at Jimmy's was excellent. Fantastic variety of different dishes freshly cooked & great value. We were greeted by each of the chefs with a smile. The only downsides were the waiting time to be seated & the bar service was poor.

The food its quite alright for a buffet. Drinks are quite expensive but well any buffet you will find expensive any way. What I like is that they cook the dishes in front of you and you can pick and choose the ingredients. They got a big range of desserts.

With a wide spread of freshly cooked food, Jimmy's has live food stations serving American, Italian, Indian, Mexican and Chinese specialties and over 60 dishes on offer in lunch and over 100 dishes in dinner. Variety in dinner is certainly more than lunch buffet but curries are present at all the times. We do serve,... More

An interesting place to visit, although one lot of food seemed to blend into another, sometimes not knowing if I was having Indian or Chinese, but it was all quite tasty

First impressions are good, it's clean and nicely laid out. I thought the food was quite average. The selection was good but there weren't incredible flavours or anything. There are much nicer buffet chains. Glad we went at lunch time and got it cheaper, would not be worth the evening meal price.

Where to start? The place looks nice, However, its all show. Lots of food dishes were empty (one mushroom dish contained just peppers and didn't have a single mushroom in it!). Chef's honestly couldn't be bothered and seemed like they would rather be at the dentist then cooking any food. What food was available was bland or dehydrated to the... More
