Nice variety of dishes, tasty and fresh. Was thinking about some worse points according to food but decided to wait. Let's see if they make a progress... The dinner price little bit too high, in Central London you can easily find similar buffets with lower evening prices.

I love this restaurant, my family and I have been coming here for the last few years and the food is always fabulous except this time I noticed the shredded duck was shredded so small it was almost like dust which in my opinion and my friends and family has spoilt the duck pancakes totally. Please go back to how... More

Each time I come here whether on my own or with friends, I can never fault the quality of food. Reasonable price, clean restaurant with friendly staff. Service is very quick.

Full star lost for the coffee machine is “broken” excuse. The Cappucinno is on the drinks menu under the hot drinks but it was not available again! We went there in March and now in November and it still has not been “fixed” but remains on the menu… One minor complaint is the lack of space. The tables are very... More

Just brilliant. The food is perfect - I am a vegetarian and there are more than enough options for me, I took my non-veggie friends with me and they loved it so much that we went back the next week! Beautiful family run business with a great interior and exterior. MUST try stir fried mushrooms, the chips [< I know!... More

Recently visited. Excellent variety of Chinese, Japanese & Thai cuisine. Went early on a Saturday and it filled up quickly, ideal for all visits from couples, families and celebrations. Hot fresh buffet food constantly replenished. Cook to order Sushi availalbe.Very good table service. Well worth a return visit. Well priced. Fried food did not taste fatty.

I came here recently with family for dinner. We were initially seated in an area full of families with kids running around and nobody trying to control them. We were quickly re-seated somewhere a bit more quiet. Drinks were ordered and we were served them very quickly. The food was ok, I wouldn't say that the choice or quality was... More

There were ten of us who went for lunch at Reku Zen and we were greeted in a friendly manner. The staff were very good and the buffet had a good range on offer. It was an eat as much as you like restaurant and three courses were available for £7.49 which is incredible value. This is perhaps not the... More

Evening meal is my favourite as it has sushi and tepanyaki grill. There's rhe usual oriental foods but one of the many options that stands out among... More
