Lovely food and service

been here twice mow since Xmas. Both times the food was fantastic and the service really good. I love the idea of a buffet but with waiter/waitress service. Food was delicious and plenty of it. They were very accommodating by taking in a surprise birthday cake for my husband and supplying candles... read more

Had a Chinese delivered tonight. Spent over an hour waiting for it then received a call from Eastern European driver asking for directions (shouldn't be hard as we've ordered from them for a few years and our phone logs our address when we order). Food arrives cold, I phone to ask for money back and am told driver on way... More

This is my local Chinese. Head here for all you can eat. However each dish is cooked freshly upon request. Food is fantastic and you have a massive menu to order from. Staff are friendly apart from the owner who seems to try and rush you in dnd out as quick as possible. Chicken satay is fantastic. Curry chicken dumplings... More

I am a regular user of this chinese restaurant and will recommend it to everyone. The restaurant is an eat all you can buffet style but the food is cooked fresh to order unlike others which leave the food out on hot plates. The service is quick and friendly and considering the place is usually packed to the rafters it... More

Table was booked for 10 people for 19.30 Monday evening we arrived on time and was seated straight away and asked what drinks we would like and these were duly delivered. Shortly after this the starters came up and all the food was piping hot. What we liked was that the waiters were very attentive to our needs but didn't... More

I usually use this place for lunchtime takeaways and the food has many great flavours. Many of the eat-in diners are from a nearby private school and are oriental...can you get a better recommendation?

Table for 11 booked for 18:15, and had to pay a deposit of £10 per head. Starters were very good, and the duck pancake rolls were out of this world. Staff paid attention to out table with some very prompt service. But alas the evening was ruined. The mains were ordered and only one served, followed by a ten minute... More

We had a really good family Birthday meal here the other night and I was totally surprised at the quality of the individual dishes and the attentive, swift service we were given. We ordered off ‘the as much as you like menu’ so we had loads of different dishes to try and although each dish wasn’t massive they were exactly... More
