This was (literally) a random booking as it was the nearest restaurant to somewhere we were going onto and what a delightful surprise. The 'eat all you like' buffet style but ordered in tapas size sampler dishes was excellent and so much better that the 'luke-warm' buffets in heated trays. In fact... read more

I went tonight with 3 friends after work. We ordered 3 starters each as we were all very hungry but when they came out it was all on the same plate and we didn't get some of the items we ordered but the waitress brushed it off and only offered us to order our next course. Every item we ordered... More

7 of us went for the first time last night and had a brilliant night. The amount of food you get for the money is incredible, we entered the restaurant at 8pm and was there for 3 hours . During that time there was food on the table from start to finish. It cost us £25 each and that included... More

Went here last night, we had a table booked for 6pm for 5 people. Only one other table of people when we got there but it soon filled up. We ordered about 10 items from the starter menu and it was all so good we ordered the same again! The food came very quickly and was very hot. Unfortunately after... More

This buffet restaurant is very pilar as it offers the All u can Eat menu. Value for money and in my opinion better than Koh Thai. Get a group of friends together and order lots to share out. Fun evening and appetites totally satisfied

Came here two days ago and had the best Chinese food I have ever eaten. I find that usually prawn crackers are greasy, however your prawn crackers were amazing especially with the chilly dip. Loved the egg fried rice and the smoked chilly chicken was excellent.The chicken in black bean sauce was the best I have ever had and the... More

Came a few months ago and was great, visited this month and was just as good, staff were better this visit and although our waiter seemed quite new and shy, he was attentive and polite, lovely quality of food once again and although portions of our main dishes seemed quite small at first, was just enough for the 3 of...

We went for my birthday on the 12th February just me and my fiancé. It was really quiet. Just us and 2 other tables. Service was amazing, we ordered and it would come boiling hot 2 minutes later. Food was good you could try everything and then reorder it as many times as you like. Would definitely go again.
