Not fantastic, but not bad either

I've eaten in here at lunchtime a few times and have never had anything to grumble about, but it isn't really anything to write home about either. There's enough choice to get by, but personally I'd like to see a bit of variation in the dishes. Drinks are a bit on the pricey side considering its... read more

I visited a year ago and this time I thought it was better. I enjoyed all of the food which consisted of starters, curries, noodles, rice, salad and desert. I especially liked the duck pancakes and the szechuan beef. Staff were also great.

Having been here several times we knew what to expect despite the recent reviews on here. Don’t let them put you off trying this place. We visited today for lunch @ £6.90 per person to eat as much as you want is a fair price for the amount and variety of food. Given that it was half term there were... More

I went there on the 25th February 2015 for lunch with a few friends after college. The food was all cold we informed the manager and he didn't do anything about it. The waitresses were all miserable. Usually when i go the food is hot and nice which means i can enjoy it but no it was very disappointing. It... More

Visited this all you can eat buffet recently and was very disappointed. Wine list expensive and didn't have any house products only the really expensive ones in restaurant. The waiter couldn't carry the tray of drinks and spilled them everywhere. I had to assist him in carrying the tray and he didn't even say thanks. The price is expensive for... More

It was lovely to be presented with a single rose when I had lunch at the Oriental Buffet, Folkestone, in February. I know this restaurant for years since it first opened. It has been very good then bad and is now good again. It was refurbished a couple of years ago which is an improvement. Sunday prices are good value... More

Firstly I must say that normally I've been to this place in the evening so this was the first time we'd gone there for lunch (around midday). First thing we noticed was there didn't seem to be a complete menu (no duck) which was disappointing. The food here is very good though especially the curry's and there is still a... More

First time at a Chinese buffet in folkestone. Food was average but mostly luke warm due to other customers leaving the metal tin lids off. Took waiting staff over 20mins to bring drinks over and when they arrived the poor lad serving was struggling to carry a tray with only three drinks on it could do with some practise as... More

Our usual choices for lunch had stopped serving so despite avoiding the place for the best part of a decade, we gave in on the basis that if it was that bad, it would have gone by now. Or not. I am a veggy and had trouble finding enough that looked edible to put on my plate. Sadly, much of... More

I've passed this place loads of times and never given it a second glance as it looked a bit down trodden. However today on a whim we decided to give it a go and were pleasantly surprised. There was a good choice of food - Chinese, Thai and Indian. I chose a selection of Chinese food - chicken wings, seaweed,... More
