Good food and good value service could be better

I love the food and the buffet concept but sometimes service can be poor. For example we asked for salads and these arrived at the end of the meal. Other dishes we asked for later arrived before the salads so not great. However everything else is good.

As I am a fussy eater I was worried whether I would enjoy the food here.. but how wrong was I! I have been to this all you can eat Chinese / Japanese restaurant many times in the last couple of years. Every time the food has been to a high quality, lots of choice and great customer service.

Very high quality food - everything's freshly made unlike a lot of all-you-can-eat Chinese. Fast and professional service from start to finish. At £15 - it's worth every penny. Excellent sushi and range of appetisers.

I fancied going out to a Chinese restaurant for dinner on Friday. I was a spur-of-the moment thing (you know how it is) Thought I'd check out Tripadvisor to find out what was the best Chinese restaurant in town, and of course it had to be about 8 miles away! So then I remembered O-Tokuda. I knew it was Japanese... More

Been here many many times and have always received great service and enjoyed the food. The staff literally force the food on you unlike many other all you can eat places which seem to begrudge feeding you. Not keen on it for parties as the layout means you can only talk to your immediate neighbours on the table easily.

A family trip to O Tokuda tonight. And have to say it's been another excellent evening. Busy little restaurant with excellent food, attentive service and a cracking atmosphere. Love this place.

This fab restaurant has a great selection of food, choose the 'all you can eat' option to sample lots of different dishes. The team are friendly with fast service and prices are good. If you go with 8 or more people on your birthday the birthday person has a free meal which was great for my sister! Would absolutely recommend.

O-Tokuda is a Japanese-Thai fusion restaurant that offers a buffet service. But its big selling point is that the buffet is not self-service from trays that have been on hotplates for ages; everything is cooked to order. There are over a hundred items on the menu and while a few attract an extra charge, most fall within the single price... More

We go regularly to o-tokuda, for family birthdays etc, always friendly, prompt service. And the all you can eat Japanese menu is excellent, very varied with wonderful tastes. Superb value for money. We will definitely be back again soon.

Been here a few times, it's always consistently good. The food is well cooked to order, and you can order as much as you like. A great place to try all sorts of different food you may not have eaten before. Pity it where it is, it deserves to be in a really nice situation. Can't wait to go back
