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!

The great things about this buffet, as well as the huge selection of food, they also cook dishes right in front of your eyes. Would recommend having a stir fry, fajita or pasta dish cooked right in front of you, as well as the naan breads. And don't forget ice cream for desert.

If you want variety at a reasonable price Jimmy Spice's is the place for you. With a large selection of starters , main dishes and deserts. The drinks are reasonable as well. No need to rush, just take your time to indulge in all the foods that you like. Very enjoyable

It really depends what you look for in a all you can eat meal. If your looking for poor food, potential food poisoning and long service times then this is the place to be. The BBQ pork ribs come uncooked, still pink, and the lack of food choice is laughable. The quality of food is awful too. The naan bread... More
