A real hidden gem right in the heart of the university area. The wide selection of food was fresh, seasonal and DELICIOUS. The chicken fried rice was a taste sensation #NomNomNom. Will be back.

Great food for low prices. Very quick service which I love about the place. Always a crowd pleaser. The only thing I have to criticize is how they handle waiting...my family and I went there for my mums birthday and were told there was no 5 seat tables ready so we were happy enough to wait as we love eating...

This is a Chinese buffet and there was plenty of choice, but there was no atmosphere about the place and as soon as you had finished your plate was gone. Okay place if you want a cheap and cheerful meal on the go but not for a cosy dinner for two.

Staff ok as was buffet. Tepanyaki was offered as part of the all-in buffet price and prepared -but without great effort Chicken tepanyaki was too salty and the only add-on was onions (no other vegs like carrots, soya sprouts or alike) Overall an ok restaurant with feasible pricing but unlikely a place to go for a second time
