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

I go every year for my birthday! They are not pricey and the food is amazing. The people there are really nice and social, which I love! It's just an amazing experience and I would recommend going there. It is easy to book and I promise that you'll have a great time! They've also put work into creating the right... More

Used to go there years ago and finding ourselves in Wallingford on a Sunday decided to go for impromptu lunch, arrived early for lunch but got a warm welcome and immediate drinks whilst we were waiting. Food both in selection and taste good, in fact spring rolls as good as any we have tasted. Excellent value and friendly service, planning... More

Born and raised in Wallingford I have dined at the Beijing Diner over many years. Buffets were once a joy with a good selection of foods, which were kept well stocked/topped up and very reasonably priced... NOT ANY MORE!! My most recent visit, on a Saturady evening, was terrible. Whilst the food quality in general was good the selection was... More

Visited the Beijing Diner in a small group on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday. We had the buffet and I honestly say everything I tried was delicious! The buffet was constantly topped up. The staff were great especially the manager who played “Happy Birthday” on the sound system when he brought out the cake we brought in earlier.... More

We visited Bejing Diner expecting it to be a buffet. As they were not busy we had personal table service from Elaine, Rosheen, and Manish. The food was our choice, piping hot, delicious and we were only billed on the buffet tariff. The best value we have had for many years. Thank you very much for an enjoyable evening meal.
