We've been here a few times and it's always been okay, but this is very much a place to go to fill up, not a destination restaurant at all. It's a big place with upwards of a hundred tables, I would think. The buffet is decent quality and there's always enough choice. As with most of these buffet places, the... More

Was ok here. Nothing to go mad over. Not one of the best buffets in town but not the worst either. Dont think i will return though. cant really moan for £10.99 though. Desserts were probably the best part of the buffet.

The selection is not that extensive and only average quality but the the £7.95 price tag for an 'all you can eat' you make allowances for such things. it did the job for us. I am not sure about the 'biscuit' selection in the dessert section however, yes bourbons, digestives and the such like, really.... biscuits? Perhaps it is a... More

Been here a few times in the last couple of months and we love it. Go as a treat with work colleagues, usually around payday! It has a great selection of dishes, soups, ribs, noodles and of course theism dishes: sweet and sour chicken, chilli beef, kung po etc. the desserts are immense, almost worth the price just for those....

I go here every 2-3 months with several ex-work mates who have now retired and all of us absolutely love it here. We have tried several chinese buffets in Manchester but after our first visit here we haven't wanted to go anywhere else. Excellent choice of dishes, especially desserts which are usually very limited choice in other restaurants. Definitely give... More

Visited at 8.00ish on a Thursday evening and the place was very busy. The waiter was very friendly and showed us to our table & took the drinks order. The food was of a good quality & piping hot, however there is not the same variety of choice that I have found in other buffet restaurants. The seating is a... More
