A nice enough buffet lunch

I ate here with a colleague for lunch it was nice enough with plenty of nice food on offer. Although the food is nice and the service was good I would not be tempted to come back again. I asked for the bill and the waitress said that I had only been in 49 minutes, I explained it was just... read more

Don't do it to yourself. . The restaurant is hideous.. pokey little underground dungeon... staff are disinterested.. service atrocious.. food was mediocre to say the least... almost dangerous.. hot food barely being kept at temp.. no wonder we we're ill afterward.. I had to ask three separate staff to pay our bill.. wish I hadn't bothered..

Went out for a meal with friends for a catch up it was a Friday night and we had booked. We had to wait to be seated which was fine and we understood that but it was packed to the point of annoying. When we were seated there wasn't room to swing a cat no elbow room and we were... More

From my original booking request until the moment we left staff were helpful and friendly. Food was delicious and plenty of it. Staff were attentive. Seats maybe crammed in a little much making it a squeeze to get up and down.

Good value for money for the lunch service, I find the evening service to be quite expensive. there seems to be more variety at evening rather than lunch.

Visited here for the third time, 5 of us, early evening midweek. It was not busy & we didn't book. Seated on a tiny little table in a dark corner. The food was ok although not as much selection as other times and some of the hot stations were not in use. The pizza and desserts were very good. Drinks... More
