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.

The food is not appealing at all I'm having it now, ordered a chow mein chicken and the taste is quite dull, the sauce is slimy I waited for an hour and half for the food to arrive. I have to say though they are very generous with their portions.

This experience has shaken my faith in humanity to its very core. If I wanted to wait two hours for a disappointing ending I would re-watch The Phantom Menace. The crispy chili beef could have been crispy shredded boot. One positive from this ordeal was learning that pork could be grey, a fact of which I was previously unaware. After... More

Me and my husband went here today for lunch. Wish we hadn't. The place was almost empty and really cold. The food was horrible. I don't like giving bad reviews but a lot of the food was inedible. Dry chewy meat, the chicken didn't taste right at all and all the food was only barely warm. The place had only... More

The food was cold and hard. The place itself needs a touch of loving care. It feels a little run down compared to other Chinese buffet I've been too. I will not be recommending this place and will not be going. Unless it seriously takes note of what needs doing

The food was terrible and didn't look appertizing. The meals were not nice at all and the chicken and beef didn't taste like meat. I felt sick afterwards. Don't waste your money.
