Nice meal

Nice food and although they were fully booked the manageress worked some wizardry and fitted us in. Lovely selection however there were no real main veggie meal options. I have really enjoyed mushroom or beancurd dishes in the past.

This place has unfortunately declined in quality during the last 2 years that I've dined here. It's usually busy but the last time we dined here it was much quieter but we had opted for the later time and the more expensive slot (with the idea that there would be more to choose from - like mussels and 'duck').

While I understand the appeal of all you can eat buffets, there's always something terribly average about a place where nearly everything tastes the same. If you want good chinese get a takeout.

The best chinese sit down I have ever had at the upstairs restaurant. Hot & Sour Seafood soup is brill. Sizzling steak melts in your mouth. Downstairs is good but upstairs is the place to go

Every time we have come here we have always enjoyed. Lots to choose from, fresh food, tasty good selection. Puddings are good. I do think it is expensive and the children's price is too expensive as my little boy doesn't each much.

Nice vibes due to modern layout and privacy. Tasty food with a large selection. A good place to go in big or small groups, I would recommend.
