Went to this restaurant with friends when we all were really hungry. We tried to reach before 5 PM as it would have been cheaper for us like nearly 10 Pounds but as we reached at 5.20 Pm we had to pay nearly 17 Pounds per person for the Buffet. The food had a lot of variety and tasted quite... More

They do have a few choices of food. I enjoyed the sushi very much. All the other things tend to be a bit dry like it's been there for days, or just cold as if the lamps aren't hot enough to keep them warm. Some staff were okay and friendly. Some seem very miserable like they don't actually like to... More

I visited here with my partner and in-laws, who love buffets. The food was tasty, although my favourite, Chicken Satay, was missing on this visit! Food was tasty though, and lots of choice, we enjoyed the Dim Sum section as you tend not to get that in many other buffets. The only area I feel is a bit lacking is... More

It does have a nice restaurant feel to it rather than a buffet bar which is great. Its modern and clean, and also has chef cooking to order inc in the buffet price,... More

Dined on Sat 15th Nov 2014, tasteless and cold. Would never go back again. In a party of 10 and no one enjoyed it. Our 11 year old daughter was charged as an adult because she is tall. Felt discriminated against, when there were clearly older children there who paid the child price. Having a note on the website is... More
