This is one of those all you can eat places when you can get a good feed of standard Chinese grub for a tenner on any day of the week.By the way, the name of this place has changed its now called Dynasty.

I am not well versed in Chinese cuisine and have eaten the set menu more often than not, but this establishment did this job very well. Quickly and slickly set to the table, good service, tasty food and a very acceptable price

This restaurant used to be great for buffet meals but seems to have changed with the times. It has now brought in sausages and sausage rolls for the kids, however this has taken away some of the selection, Don't get me wrong if you want a good feed head to china china, although don't be looking for one type of...

The food was what you expect at a budget smorgasbord. Not very tasty at all, limited selection of meals. Cheap
