Meal for 3

Went to Laus for the first time today for lunch. The inside is modern and but warm and a bit cramped. The waiters were friendly and were attentive to clearing the tables. It's best off going before 5-6pm as they put the price up by £4-5 per person! There is a big menu with lots to choose from... read more

Visited as family of 4 with grandma for the sunset buffet early Friday evening about 6pm. Food was very nice but far too overpriced for families (£65.00 total bill) hence there was no other families there....it's still only a buffet and they were slow filling the dishes up especially dim sums.... Did not order off the chap cooking to order... More

To summarise our visit yesterday evening for the so called "sunset buffet" I would now call this old fashioned school dinners Chinese style! Dim sum only cheap varieties available despite being advertised differently. Shredded duck hardly any left and pancakes not cooked and dried out, watered down hoisin sauce in dirty container which tasted bad as well. The guy (african... More

Me and two of my uni friends decided to meet up and go for lunch rather than go to the same usual places we decided to try somewhere new and one of my friends had been here before so we tried it and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Located just outside The Gate, the restaurant was fairly busy and atmosphere was... More

Have been many times in the past but definitely not as good as it was. Less choice, cheaper ingredients and poorer quality. Combine this with the price increase (now 13.95 for sunset buffet) and I'll go elsewhere for better food next time. Staff appeared unfriendly and not very happy.

We've been here before and that's why we went again, but this buffet restaurant has really sadly gone downhill. They used to do a brilliant variety of Chinese Indian and sushi etc now there's nothing to go back for, what a real shame... Aneesa's at the quayside is much better but this is mostly Indian food. A couple of quid... More

I visited here with my wife and daughter in June. I'll start on a positive which is the large selection of food, some of which are ok. However I found that every dish which contained chicken was extremely dry. It really was inedible and very disappointing. There is a large quantity of sweets however they were not refrigerated and were... More

Been trying out different buffets with the family each week and this place is by far the worst food we've tasted. Atmosphere was alright. Personally I liked the chocolate mousse the best and found the food in general of poor standard. I also want to point out that we got charged the evening price at 2pm! So please be sure... More
