I have to like it...

Well, I study near it and I came from China. So it is a must have for me. The roast duck is superb but they changed their chef recently. Tbh, don't expect too much for its buffet, nobody try Chinese cafeteria in China lol. The waiter was changed recently as well, from a really nice guy to a... read more

I've been here many times and always get the same quality food and service, both excellent. I'm always made to feel very welcome by the owner who's name eludes me at present. I always settle on the Buffet which is always more than enough and perfectly cooked, on the odd occasion that you may have a complaint you can be... More

All you can eat , great choice but also nice and relaxing. Service very friendly and great value . I've always found the other buffet establishment beginning with J to be too loud, bright and packed . You also don't feel LB is such a cattle troughing experience. Me like it long time

Me and my other half ate here on Easter Sunday. We had spring roll starters, then sizzling lamb with ginger and spring onions and Szechuan chilli beef. It was all beautiful. The lamb was incredibly tender and flavourful. We've found a new favourite dinner place and are kicking ourselves we haven't come here before.

I'm not sure if it was because it was a Tuesday night. The chicken and sweetcorn soup was excellent as was the other starters. The main meals disappointing - the chicken was dry/bone dry but the meals in the sauces was okay. The toffee banana was poor and the ice cream was a 1 out of 10. Great service.

I recently visited Stratford-Upon-Avon and decided to visit The Laughing Buddha for lunch. Having skipped breakfast I thought an all-you-can-eat buffet would fill me up for the day, and I went to a coffee shop to wait for the restaurant to open at 12 noon. When I went in at 12.10 p.m. there were 2 men there - one sweeping... More
