Visited many times but seems to have had a bit of an update- now have tables and buffet laid out much better. Seats by windows so can watch the swans and ducks just outside. Buffet quite a good choice but no free puddings. Only £8 lunchtime for as much as you can eat. But oh dear - the waiters -... More

We visited this restaurant whilst holidaying in Weymouth and were drawn in by an impressive website and menu. When we arrived, a surly looking Waiter led us to a table in silence, uttered the word 'drinks', took our order and left. We assumed that we just helped ourselves to the food so proceeded to the buffet. What we were presented... More

A good restaurant if you like a variety of food - great to be able to have indian, chinese and thai all at one place. Only a limited number of dishes from each were available (about 10 or 12), but this was enough. Quality of food was decent and good variety. Food never ran out. Only downside is that you... More

The meat dishes were top quality and not stingy on quantity on meat either. The chilli and garlic seafood dish - crammed full of big juicy prawns, mussels and squid. Side... More
