Economical Sunday Buffet

Very good Sunday buffet but food not very hot. A lot of this could be other diners leaving the lids off the food containers so perhaps notices requesting diners to replace lids would be a good idea.

Used to go here a lot years ago, but now we went back recently, its looks tired a bit grubby and the staff look bored. Time to cheer yourselves up a bit I think. Food still good

Been back and it has improved. I do have to say though that chips, curled fries and deep fried empty one ton are a bit excessive. Yes we need some English bits to choose for those who can't do the Chinese food but want to socialise with friends and family. I also think hight has nothing to do with the... More
