We had booked so were seated immediately but took ages to get drinks and have them delivered. Asked for jug of water but just given one small glass each. It's all buffet style but many of the curries are chicken. I love chicken but not too impressed with any of them - some were just mild and no flavour and... More

I'd never been to an all you can eat bar so my boyfriend and I went and it was definitely all you could eat, but you didn't want to. It all looks appetising and the staff were very friendly, but apart from the Indian curries it didn't taste very good. It was also very loud with two large tables of... More

Went with many friends with children and got seated on a Saturday night with no problems. There was a good selection of food although advertised there was no sushi on the night we went. The kids loved it all especially the chocolate fountain. The food was more takeaway quality but overall excellent value for money.

For the price the food is value for money and the range of dishes good. One or two (think they were managers) staff hover and stare. Perhaps they have had people run off without paying the bill, or perhaps they are just nosey... Also it was really warm in there today. They need to turn on the aircon. All in... More

The food quality is below average and the food hygiene practices to say the are dubious, as a previous reviewer pointed out topping up the food containers on top of the old food is not good practice. I found the place incredibly noisy with the ice-cream chef constantly banging some sort of scoop on the counter. The cost of the... More

The service was poor, the food quality wasn't very good, it caters for people who want to eat a lot and not fussy about what they are eating. there were a lot of people on the larger side eating here with their children running wild around the place almost got knocked off my feet. I went with family and friends... More

The food quality was fairly poor I thought and I found the whole experience far too fussy and complex. We went on a Sunday and decided to try the roast, found the meat, had to ask where the veg was as was on a different section but never did find any potatoes and the sauce that was allegedly gravy, my...

Had a great day out. Lovely food as much as we could eat and cooked to perfection. We all enjoyed it. Age 13 up to 74 and loads in between. Great

Deliberately overcharged a group of 14 year olds (presumably because there were no adults present). Youth of today are tomorrow's customers and they, and their friends, won't be back. Shame on you!

This branch of Jimmy Spices is good but not as good as their Staines branch food is good and plentiful tables are cleaned quickly after use but the service is not as excellent as it should be but still very good
