1.45pm on a Sunday afternoon and in need of a meal, we spotted Jimmy Chung's . A buffet for £9.99 which can't be bad. There were lots of people eating there so we were expecting great things. It was a 'help yourself buffet' and the choice was good but unfortunately the plates were cold and the food was warm -... More

We went to the "Platform 2 Market" at Waverley Station, so this seemed to be a good place for lunch. Wrong !!! The food was less than average. The service non-existent. The place could do with new carpets and a good clean. To top it all, my wife spent half the night in the toilet with diarrhea before the "Immodium"... More

Food tasteless and overcooked. Definitely not fresh but not quite sure how old it was seemed like it was maybe cooked some time ago. All the food and desserts were the same plain bland and dried out. The evening price is ridiculous for what you are presented with and I think they should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves serving that... More

Basically believe it or not, but I just went in the restaurant. Sit down and went to get a plate for my food. The plates were dirty. The food looking disgusting and like a forgotten left over in your fridge from a week. For the first time ever in my life I just left the plate and went out. Can... More
