Amazing buffet

Very nice staffs and the food are really nice too. Although not as much variety in the food section but still more than enough to eat from.

Lovely food which was hot and tasty. Took my mum and we had a lovely meal and drinks for just over £20. The desserts were gorgeous and plenty of choices. Would definitely recommend it.

We went to buffet city last Monday and really enjoyed it. Foods were real Asian taste and fresh. Also had variety of choices. Atmosphere of the restaurant was good. Staff were very friendly. I'm very happy to go there again.

We called here for a late evening meal after seeing a show at the theatre and were greeted by friendly efficient staff. We helped ourselves to the food which was of an average standard and we left having eaten our fill but were disappointed with the flavour. There was a good choice of dishes but the vegetarian choice was lacking.... More

Nice food, decent price. Desserts could be a bit better, it's literally just biscuits like jammy dodgers and mars bars cut up. Over all not bad.
