The restaurant was very busy when we arrived we haven't been here for over twelve months and were a little concerned it had changed looking at the reviews. The service was good the waiters are not intrusive like at many buffets and they don't push you to buy more drinks. The food was very good for... read more

This restaurant has been offering buffet menu for a while now. The food is not inspiring and tastes bland. The only saving grace is the freshly prepared Tepanyaki - but who would think of adding pasta spirals in a Tepanyaki? The soups are good as are most of the starters. When coming to the main dishes, it casts a sorry... More

I've ordered chicken noodle soup + salt&pepper chicken (my chinese standard meal) and I was slightly disappointed. The food wasn't bad however lack of taste was very noticeable. Soup had a pieces of chinese leaf cabbage (never had that in soup before but why not) but it did taste like a chicken stock cube dissolved in too much water. But... More

I like the food here put sometimes its not alway very hot. We never feel like its a place to linger. But if you want to take to kids somewhere for a quick lunch or dinner you could do worst. the staff are always friendly

Used to love this restaurant and hadn't been in a while. The soup was inedible the food was dry, overcooked and tasteless. The fact it was also £12.90 a head made it worse. No where near worth that. Will not be visiting again.

We have ordered from here several times and really really enjoyed it. We decided to go in on Valentine's Day rather than get a delivery and I'm pleased to say... We still love it!

The food was slimy and looked incredibly Unappetizing! the beef randang was grey!! It looked and tasted vile! The Thai chicken curry came with 2 stems of broccoli....that was it... More

Food cold. Service pretty poor. Decor dated and run down. Clientèle isn't great either. not much choice on the food with an edgy atmosphere. The food was not appetising at all. The toilets are also disgusting- i hope the kitchen looks nothing like them. Wouldn't go back here and waste my money, even if it is cheap and cheerful.
