This is a very popular all-you-can-eat restaurant. It's always packed! The staff are normally very friendly. There is a wide variety of food: Chinese, Malaysian, Thai and sushi. It's pretty good, and seems to survive sitting under hot bulbs to stay warm pretty well. I'm not generally interested... read more

4 of us went for a Birthday Meal in the evening. The staff were amazing and very friendly. The food was hot and there was an amazing selection for the price. Very enjoyable and will go back very soon.

Went there in the week for lunch. Not much out but what can you expect for the price. The staff were very helpful and the manager was very nice. No duck or prawns. Still left full up

Having not been to Reku Zen in a few years I was a little hesitant that things wouldn't be as good as I remembered, but thankfully that wasn't the case at all. There were a wide range of dishes, which were being topped up consistently, and most of which were of a good quality. Considering the buffet had so much... More

Very good and a wide range of buffet foods in the evening but a limited range of buffet at lunchtime (e.g. no prawns although half the price but still excellent value).

took the kids and my visiting sister to Reku Zen because I'd heard good things, and my daughter loves sushi. I didn't know they didn't serve sushi at lunch during the week! but their lunch buffet had an amazing variety of Asian dishes, chinese, thai, and indian - and it was all you can eat which my son was thrilled...

I havnt been in a while but when I did I enjoyed it. The Food Was Hot-ish and it was of good quality. I have only been to a few Chinese buffets and this has got to be the best one. The pricing is standard from what I have experienced from a few others. I would go again.
