Went on Saturday and it wasn't too packed, maybe because United were playing. Nice place, great value, I basically had a Chinese banquet for £7, Ribs, and wings alone would cost that from a takeaway, also had king prawns (peel them yourself) followed by beef in black bean sauce with some broccoli and noodles, there's a great choice of desserts...

I have just visited buffet city and I am mad with myself that I have left them £10.95 for almost nothing. I have been misled by all the bloody good reviews I have read earlier on today. People who wrote them, I am mad with you as well, you must have lost your taste buds (and your marbles!) long time... More

Went in a Sunday and waited 10 minutes for a table as it was packed out but well worth the wait. Food is constantly refreshed and re stocked and always a great variety. Look forward to going again.

Quantity of desserts is amazing, but cutting up a snickers and calling it a dessert is a little cheeky. Lots and lots of good variety and sushi, large space, clean booths, attentive staff. Drinks are expensive as they tend to be in these places but well worth loading your plate with all the delicious chinese-fill your boots! My new favourite... More

We was visiting on a short weekend break and didn't know what we fancied. We found this and was very happy with the food. We was one on the lucky few to get a booth seating. The rest does look like a school dining area. But the food and choice was spot on with a great selection on desserts

Went here today and it was really nice. The food was lovely, only just got past one plate and couldn't eat anymore. The desserts are delicious. Staff were friendly and efficient, would certainly go again.

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.

Second time visiting here, and was a little better then last time, standard food, for a buffet, nothing to write home about, but nothing bad, good price for what you get
