I've no idea whether there is yet another round of management here but it is a pretty awful place to go. We went there with friends on Saturday night at 8pm and were the only people here. We've all been many times before but not for a while but would never go back. Bad lighting with spotlights straight in your... More

Last night was our first ever visit and we didn't realise it was a help yourself buffet, (which was hidden from where we were seated) so we sat for about five minutes waiting to be given a menu. Luckily the missus saw what what was going on and we then helped ourselves. It would have been nice if this and... More

Not been for nearly 2 years. Management changed & decor and layout. Wife, daughter & I had lots of choices. Lots of starters. Mains selection OK but could do with few more but we had plenty of starters. Enough deserts. We enjoyed what we had. Service great - shown to table promptly & drinks order taken & brought to table...

Under new management and what an amazing difference it makes. The new owner has done a fantastic job, the staff are brilliant and the food is amazing. It was buffet night last night (Friday), superb value for money and great selection of food. It was an enjoyable evening from start to finish. It was just a meal out in Wallingford... More

just been for a buffet night with 4 very hungry boys, and the food was excellent. I couldn't count the number of return trips they all made, but they certainly enjoyed it and had plenty. Good range of dishes, continually topped up by very attentive waiters. The restaurant has recently been redecorated and reorganised, which is a great improvement.

Just been to the Beijing Diner with the family, for the buffet. It was my first time there. It is great value for money and the dishes were replenished regularly.

The Beijing Diners buffet is marvellous, with food being added constantly so it's always hot. The mix of options is perfect, and the price is good too. Equally dining off the menu rather than the buffet is pleasant, and reasonably priced in comparison to some of the local competition. My boys always feel welcome there, it is genuinely family friendly..though... More

Glad you had a good time, we have always aimed to be family friendly. Children grow up and they WILL be back as adults too if they had a good childhood memory of the place. BTW tell them thay need to stop growing as I am not allow to raise the roofline without planning permission. :) More

Have been coming here regularly for years. The buffet offers a really good range of food, especially the starters, which I love. Only thing that has gone downhill is the toffee apples for dessert - they used to be served fresh and hot, now they're always cold, not nearly as good!

Glad to hear that you had a good time. As for Toffee apples, just ask and the chef would have been happy to make some hot ones providing the restaurant is not heaving.. Sugary foods don't like being kept hot like the starters. More
