A great place with longer lunch opening hours than its rivals, buffet city was a blessing. With lots of choice and an opportunity to literally eat all you wish it is worth a try. A few more desert options and it would be perfect.

Been in a few times now with friends and the choice gets bigger each time. I particularly like the Teppanyaki grill. Great value.

There is nothing that would prompt me to return here. Nearly all the food was unremarkable and the billing was chaotic, we were a large group & probably paid for our drinks twice over. The only food that was OK was the rice, noodles, freshly cooked wok food, salmon, fruit & Florentines (which, like all the dessers

£6.95 for as much generic Chinese style fodder as you can cram in your gob......The food is ok, the staff are generally graceless and austere, but you won't leave hungry and if your idea of heaven is sweet 7 sour with a pile of chips you'll be happy.
