Groupon bargain... with problems.

A group of us when with a Groupon voucher and it worked out very reasonable. The food was ok, good choice but nothing special. The price was what made the food taste that little bit better! Service was alright, although apparently the woman told us that we only had an hour and a half to eat... read more

Shockingly bad food, I've eaten better school meals! With two girls aged 12 & 14, they were unlikely to eat them out of house and home, yet we were still charged adult price, which appears slightly harsh at £13.99 each, so our bill was nearly £70 for 4 including drinks. Food very average, tasteless and bland, mass catering on the... More

The idea of an all you can eat buffet appeals to my incredibly greedy side and the range of dishes was fantastic. However, unfortunately, the dishes lacked any sort of flavour and some weren't particular hot. My biggest grievance, being an overgrown child, is that the jelly was flavourless! The ice cream selection however was top notch. I'd rather pay... More

We have been to the Red Hot World Buffet in Manchester don't think this was quite as good. Some of the food I had was only fair even though there is a lot of variety. The sweets were excellent and so was the pizza.

Thank you for your review. Because we are a self service buffet, things like this do happen on occasion and our staff are quick to make sure it doesn't happen again. Our staff will happy replace any item on the buffet that hasn't been handled correctly, and they will get the situation resolved in a matter of minutes. Thank you... More
