This is definitely not "fabulous" food, as some others have ironically described it. It's mediocre at best probably. A friend had coupons he paid for and invited a large group of us to all go eat here for a reunion. Waiter was friendly but way too dumb to put it bluntly. There were 3 coupons, for 6 people, all of... More

Went last night with a Groupon. Last time I just found it OK, but as the title says it has improved. This was evidenced by the queue out the door. Food selection was good. It was hot and everything tasted different. Some buffets everything ends up tasting the same. Still a bit canteeny but they are trying with a makeover... More

Went here for a birthday celebration. Like other reviewers I am not a fan of the "All you can eat" buffet. Plenty of selections. Food no worse than some restaurants I have been to where a single course would cost the same. Friendly staff but restaurant lacks atmosphere. Also lacked heating making for a chilly evening. £12.99 a head so... More

We came here years ago and had an average experience. Today it was even worse. Plates were cold, food was cold, teppanyaki was awful and squid smelled off. I've informed the staff and they told me they would change it. Shredded beef was nice and so were the green beans and the broccoli. Everything else was bad and poorly cooked... More

I'm not really a fan of buffets anymore, if they can make a profit from charging so little, I hate to think where they get their meats :/ However, you get what you pay for. The staff are pleasant and only too willing to help, this is just not my thing anymore. The food wasn't particularly warm and I steered... More

My partner and I went for a quiet meal and the restaurant was fine and the staff were very friendly. My partner said he thought his food was nothing special but alright, but everything I ate seemed to have a soapy after taste, I couldn't explain it, maybe it was on the plates or cutlery. Also, a lot of the... More

I used to come here when I was a student many years ago, and the food wasn´t great so I´ve always tried different restaurants around the area afterwards. Last week we couldn´t get anywhere so we ended up having lunch here and we were pleasantly surprised. Food standards seem to be higher now and we had a very enjoyable meal... More

Was looking for a place to eat and walked through the door to check prices. Gentleman came to the door and told us it was £7.49 for an adult and £4 for a child - all you can eat buffet. Ended up going in. Large choice of food, hot food. Some dishes to our liking and some not but a... More

Went with my little girl before seeing Annie @ the hippodrome. She's not a fan of Chinese food but with the Buffett she can try lots of different things to see what she likes. Lots of choice and we really liked the desserts. The staff were very friendly and took their time to talk to my little girl.
