The food was terrible , cold, limp & tastless and by all accounts from other reviews over £10.00 per adult. The floor and everything you touch is sticky (the floor really sticks to... read more

Oh no! Chinese buffet on a real budget and doesn't it show? When this first opened it was very good but my second visit was totally different. The food is awful, virtually inedible and the service non-existent once they've taken your money. No wonder there were so few customers. Better off in Tesco's cafe opposite.

The "draft" beer was out of a can so the pint (568ml) was just 500ml, trading standards should look at... More

Took my mum here for lunch today. Should have known it wasn't going be a good experience as we were the only people in there even after being open for two hours. The waiter didn't explain anything about the menu and took ages to deliver our drinks - in grubby glasses. My feet were sticking to the floor the whole... More
