Eat as much as you like

We went to the evening buffet, the idea is good you choose your veg and meat, sauces etc, price cheap but a bit samey really, not sure i would rush there again, good for students that want to bulk up i guess,

Popped in here for a quick dinner. It is basically an all you can eat buffet but once you pile up your bowl you give it to one if the chefs and they cook it in front of you. The meat is very finely sliced so it only takes a minute to cook. What's nice about this concept is that... More

Second time returning foodie, and just like the first experience I loved it. Food is awesome and there is quite a variety on offer, especially for the low price you pay for a buffet-type experience. On the table you’re given 2 x Mongolian traditional breads per person and it is by far the best plain bread I’ve tasted. You’re also... More

Average dine in place for change.Visited there with friends for dinner,average experience.Will be helpful if the staff is more engaged with customers explaining how the whole pick your own process work rather then you becoming the gastronomic guide for them.

Great place to go when you have hungry boys to feed. This is a place where you can choose your raw ingredients and then a cook will zap them on the hotplate. You can go back as many times as you want. Loved the chicken and sweetcorn soup too.

It's a fantastic idea. It's probably sacrilege for me to say, but it's like halfway between all you can eat and Teppanyaki. You pick the stuff you want in your noodles and they cook it up on the hotplate in front of you. It was really nice. The restaurant itself was nice too, a little rough round the edges I... More

Came with a group of 7 early on Friday night. Really enjoyed the food, good selection but it did take a while to get through as it got busier. Staff handled this really well, getting an extra chef out and keeping everything stocked up. Drinks and dessert menus were really good too. Definitely worth the price for a good meal... More

We dined here on our first anniversary! We chose the open buffet. It was an interesting experience as you could watch the chefs cook your meal right in front of you in a matter of minutes. It was generally very good. The meat could be sliced a bit thicker to really get the flavour in the dishes..

A good BYO a decent unique selling point. The way the food is cooked for you is cool. The restaurant is noisy so definitely suited to a large group. Eat all you can is awesome. Staff were good and the owner was very friendly.
