Okay, your hungry and you have just walked out the station. Slap bang next to this restaurant. okay on entering and being seated. Then what seemed a mediocre selection of food. The fun came when we discovered a green cheese cake base. Now bare in mind this was a raspberry cheese cake. We advised the waiter and after several moments... More

Thought it'd be a great idea to fill up on some tasty Chinese food with the family before we went to winter wonderland... oh how wrong can one be, the food all tasted the same "bland" the meats were horrible, really chewy not quite sure what it was, allegedly turkey and beef? Overcooked rice, the hot and sour soup was... More

f there's one thing old Jimbo is good at, it's milking the cash cow. He's certainly not good at making top quality Chinese food. I've been quite harsh on a number of Chinese buffet restaurants and with good reason. They're all awful, and use the age-old trick of loading the food with a number of stomach filling additives to ensure... More

To be fair I am not a fan of Chinese buffets, but having avoided them for a good year, it was time to give it a go. We want at 1645 and they were already charging full dinner price of £14.99. Immediate alarm bells (just because it was December the cost had risen) This was scrawled in pen on a... More

First time at this place after walking past it many, many times. Only wish I had walked past again. Meat is tough and dry, decor is old and tired. Dirty floor. Toilet disgusting. Threat of £5 charge for food wastage. (Food waste is very annoying when you see greedy people heap there plates then waste it, but no need for... More

Visited here on a Monday, early evening. Quickly shown to a table and drinks order taken. Expensive bottle of wine for a Chinese. Went to get some soup and I have never known a Chinese buffet that doesn't do chicken and sweetcorn soup. Half the food counter was closed with a notice saying sorry therefore very limited choice of food.... More
