We decided to stop at Big Wok on a Friday lunchtime while we were in town doing some shopping. This was our first time here although we had been meaning to call in the place for ages. First impressions as you walk through the door was it reminded me of a school canteen, but the place was pretty busy. A... More

Used to like the big wok but if your after a proper Chinese buffet I'd go to jimmy spices.The last year it has gone downhill in my opinion,the food is cold and it looks and feels like a work or school cafeteria.

I used to visit this a lot when on a shopping trip but the choices are staying the same the last few times, apart from simpler dishes such as baby new potatoes where thai curry used to be. Don't get me wrong, this is still great value for a lunchtime and I have only ever visited at this time.

The food is edible if not the warmest. Good selection which all tastes ok. One of the better buffets in town. Won't hurry back though.

Visit this place regularly and can't fault it! Bargain price for lunch time meal £6.99 and eat as much as u want! Food is always hot and plenty to choose from! Staff are helpful. Granted it's more like a school canteen but for the value for money I don't need a fancy looking place! We would definitely recommend this place

After arriving at Birmingham late and being starving hungry, we took a chance and went to what looked like a popular restaurant. Not until we had our first plate of food did we realise the "popularity" was made up of scruffy looking jailbird tattoo'd chavs, by then it was too late. Willing to dismiss the lacklustre starter experience, we gave... More

I visited this place a couple of times and depending on what you want, you can aim for the cheap buffet downstairs (not really chinese but still good and many varieties of food available) or the more restaurant-like typical chinese food upstairs (a bit more pricey but it's worth it). friendly staff, nice location and overall a very good restaurant....
