The restaurant was packed and rightly so the food was abundant nice and tasty. We avoided the live dessert station due to the amount of people at it. A wonderful meal.

My husband was finishing off his meal when a waiter came over and asked if he was finished so that he could swipe the plate...hands off the plates guys until the... More

Having checked out the website I thought there was a good selection but was let down. For example the salad starter consisted of lettuce and coleslaw. We were shown to a table far away from the buffet, under the air conditioning, not ideal in February. Food wasn't the warmest. Being in early lunchtime we thought we'd get the fresh food.... More

The overriding reason to dine here is because of the excellent value for money buffet so you wouldn't necessarily expect excellence of service. The rushed-off-their-feet staff are more attentive and cheerful if you increase the restaurants profit margins through regular drinks orders probably in the expectation that this also makes for bigger tips. Nevertheless the restaurant is, popular, almost faultless... More

Have been a few times. Hit and miss re heat of food. Food not hot enough to meet legislation re food poisoning. I was afraid to eat the supposed to be hot courses. Opted for safety. Heath inspectors would definatley have an issue re heat of hot food served.

Great selection and a very popular eatery. Great early offers and the staff will let you choose your own style of pancakes and make them for you fresh. Never disappointing and have visited over a dozen times. Staff always very friendly

Me and some class mates popped into china China today for a quick easy lunch and I have to say I was surprised at how nice it was given that other Chinese buffets I had visited were tasteless. China china however was excellent tried a wee bit of everything and we all agreed it was top notch. Would definitely go... More
