The food was terrible. Really tough and tasteless. BBQ wings didn't even taste like BBQ, no beef curry and rice was all congealed. Service was appalling. Will never eat there ever again.

It's a shame! The food isn't good! Most of the meats are tough and untasty, noodles are not well cooked, none of the dishes are good! Don't go there it's expensive and not good at all! Moreover the style is horrible! I now understand why you have to pay before eating! If I hadn't I would never have! So I... More

The most awful meal we have ever had in a Chinese restaurant, with very indifferent staff. Even worse was that it was the most expensive buffet meal ever.

Went for 'dinner' @ £15.99, with a magners and a small blackcurrant / lemonade the bill was £40.80. Should've gone to a 'real' Chinese. Food was pretty bland and the choice of starters was very limited. Service was good however so that's why they're not getting 1 star instead of 2. My advice ? There's so many better places to...

The worst restaurant I ever eaten. Old and over cooked food that I could not bite. They asked us to pay when we just had a table and that was really werid as always you pay at the end. There was not much to chose from and most of the containers were empty. We found a hair INSIDE of the... More

Currently I'm sitting in the dirtiest, disgusting place I have ever eaten, me and my boyfriend ate food that didn't even resemble what I thought food was! The chicken didn't smell, look or taste like chicken and all the food was stale and smelt bad. Do not eat here

Had my annual visit to JC's with my parents on my visit from Thailand. Last year I thought the food was slightly above average but this year I was unimpressed with the quality other than a few dishes. To me nine pounds ninety nine for the lunchtime buffet was overpriced for what was on offer. The beef in black bean... More
