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.

However, the food that they offer at this place is really of poor quality to me.... 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

The buffet prices have increased a little over time but what hasn't? Overall still the best I've been to anywhere near this area. They have the largest selection and everything tastes fine.
