This used to be a nice restaurant when it first opened and we did go quite regularly. The last time we went, the food quality was poor, and the buffet doesn't get changed very often. It had been sat under the heater lights for ages and they just keep coming out with hot water topping them up. Overall its not... More

The restaurant is fairly modern, bright and clean. The food is absolutely excellent. I have never been disappointed there. If the teriyaki chef is there you can concoct your own meal , but to be honest there is enough choice on the buffet. Staff are friendly enough and plates are whisked away in an instant. The only thing I don't... More

Plenty of choice, food was nicer than expected, will visit again! Although 6.95 for each child aged 4 n 5 when they only eat a very small amount of food

We went last Sunday, having passed the place a number of times. As a family we were not disappointed, the buffet is frequently refreshed. The food is tasty, you can have a stir fry cooked to order, which is good. The price is reasonable, but I would best describe the experience as a 'hotel' 3 star dining room. Don't get... More

Wasn't expecting much when told that a Christening's reception party will be held in a buffet style Chinese resto. Having experienced a multitude of different eat-all-you-can venues, I had a feeling that nothing can surprise me anymore. The restaurant has seen better days, it is in a state that needs modernizing. But the GLORIOUS food is to die for. Totally... More

Been going here for a long time but have to say the last time we visited we found it over priced for a Sunday and the standard of food was poor had the chef make me a stir fry and the beef was like shoe leather. The toilets where dirt and the floor was slippy. Been to the Swinton buffet... More

Although I'm not a fan of all you can eat, my family and I eat here often. It's clean, the food is pretty good and it's excellent value for money! We have up to 7 kids when we eat here and the staff are always welcoming and we never feel like the children aren't allowed to be themselves. It's a... More

for an all you can eat buffet it is very good, price is very reasonable, staff very friendly and very clean. many different foods to choose from including starters and mains. the tepanyaki chef cooks some mean prawns.the only problem you will encounter is eating too much but thats your own fault.

Took an almost two hours to arrive. Driver got lost for half hour, had no idea where the city centre was. The food was lukewarm, soggy and had a funny smell to it. The had put some dodgy bottle of very very questionable looking 50p merlot, which they felt meant we should have to pay full price still. Despite the... More

For Swinton this is quite a novelty. An "All You Can Eat Chinese Buffet". Having had many buffets in the States, lived in Canada and had quite a few here in the UK this wasn't great. The best I could say is it was "OK" Unless you are in a hurry for some food, go to the buffets in and... More
