I went here with little in the way of expectation. The service is efficient and courteous. Food is pretty much what one would expect from a Chinese restaurant in a regional area - nothing to complain about, but nothing to rave about - very competently done. Serve sizes from the menu are large. There also seems to be a self-serve... More

The worst food the worst service I have ever experienced we were not treated in a respectful way and I am sorry we decided to eat there ...never again, the price of meals were very expensive which I would not have minded if the food was eatable and a reasonable size I would not recomend The Silver Bird to anyone!

Good service and it's family orientated. The buffet menu does need a change, as it has been the same theme for too long. We like it because it is a quite and a less hustled restaurant where you can sit down in peace and have a meal. Chinese New Year used to be excellent but this year was down to... More

I ordered two takeaway dishes and we've just thrown them out. Completely inedible. The food in the buffet didn't look great, but I hope that a fresh dish would be better.

A family favourite. We visit the Silver Bird regularly. Its a family owned restaurant and the owners are very lovely people. The food is good and the buffet gives great value for money.

Worst chinese I have ever had! You will get better tasting food and more value for money in a food court! Nothing I ordered had any flavor to it, the Mongolian beef was bright pink and watery. The only slightly redeeming point was the spring rolls... .... And I thought hot wok was a bad option!
