Was recommended to visit this restaurant however straight away the tired decor and cramped seating should have rung alarm bells. The food is the worse buffet style experience we have ever had. Cold, overcooked poor quality food. Thought it may be better visiting the grill for prawns and calamari. Where were the tentacles? The rubbery texture made it inedible. Definitely... More

Our first visit to this restaurant. We went on a family visit for my grandaughter's 12th Birthday. Not always easy to find something for everyone on some menus, but this buffet has something for everyone ( Indian, Mexican, Chinese, British, Japanese and Italian plus desserts) and of good quality, didn't seem like just warmed up food. The price was reasonable... More

I went there with one of my friend first I thought it's a small place but when we went in it is a big place and lots of nice food. Excellent food display. One of the top services and the buffet is very cheap too.

We were upset to read that you didn't think that this particular experience was as good as previous visits.
