More than enough rudeness for your money

The buffet was average priced, average-sized... nothing too crazy. Enough vegetarian options to keep me and my son happy, and plenty of meat dishes for my SO. Until you brought your food to the table... it was cold. Like REALLY cold... not good. The staff are extremely rude when you ask... read more

I got there at 4:00 they told me that they we going to put out fresh food. They lied and kept food that had been sitting there for a long time. The food was cold. They told me to come back around 6:00 and it would be fresh. The hell with them.

I love Buffet. Knowing that the business owner needs to make a profit, I rarely give buffets a poor rating. I do understand that the quality of the food will not be o par with what you can get in a regular, a-la-carte restaurant. However, the food that they offer at this place is really of poor quality to me.... More

This buffet was the most expensive and worst tasting food ever. 12.99 for discusting food and very rude wait staff and manager. Asked for hot pepper oil and was told it was to hot for me. Made a fool of them by eatting all of it and asking for more. Then the food was extremely cold. The whole time we... More

The prices at times are a lot higher here than Hong Kong Buffet in Glasgow. The service is very good, and the selection was very good the several times we dined there. The one item on... More
