Very pleasant lunch

Had the Sunday buffet lunch yesterday. Much better than most where the food is laid out on a table. At the Flower Drum, it's a bit like the a la carte but with a more limited menu and you can eat as much as you like. The starters were lovely, the duck was OK, but the best bit was the... read more

Dropped in by chance on this little place. We opted for a buffet which meant that you could choose what you want and it is cooked freshly for you. Nothing hanging around on hot plates, everything hot and straight out of the wok. The staff were very good and guided us through our choices. The food was very tasty though... More

We were in Watford for the night and were staying at the Travel lodge across the road so thought we'd pop in for dinner. The food was lovely, as were the staff. My girlfriend has the Chinese beer which she loved! Lovely spot.

Have been coming to this restaurant for many years. Service has always been very friendly and the food is consistently good. The ownership of the restaurant has been with the same family for nearly 20 years and in that time the standard of food and service has been maintained although the décor is a little tired. Well worth a visit... More
