I have to the Lotus Lounge three times now have had an enjoyable experience each visit. I like the way that you cab order as many times as you like and have as much as like, just like a normal buffet but not going up and getting the food yourself. I really enjoy it here and have taken my family... More

Well first thing I can think of to say is it was a bit of a let down. The staff were pleasant enough but when I asked for a pint of lager I was told they only sell bottled beer. now that's one of my pet hates, a restaurant that doesn't sell draught lager. They think by doing that they'll... More

Brilliant to be able to order what ever you like off the menu for a set price per head.... Your party can then taste lots of dishes. I have lived in Asia and can say this food was authentic and delicious!

Fantastic, £14.90 each in the week for unlimited dishes cooked to order, a nicer version of a Chinese buffet. Pleasant staff but not the most happy people in the world, however, fast service and nice quality food served in tapas style so you can order more if you want it. Wide range of starters, soup, mains and desserts, would be... More

Apart from the food, the format is great. £16.50 for all you can eat, and what you order is brought to your table, usually in shareable portions, so you can experiment and share - it's fun. Unlike a buffet it's cooked fresh for you, is hot, and hash;'t been breathed on by lots of people (though with a buffer you... More

Really one of the best value for money places to eat. Buffet style but freshly cooked to order. Waitress was superb. All the dishes were great. Only fly in the ointment is the unkept toilets.

Couldn't tip when getting charged £3.20 for cordial and soda when a pint of larger wouldnt have cost much more. Just make sure you know how much your being charged for drinks
