We have been before and sort of found the place was okay however, it's not okay anymore in fact it just clouding be worse. Food was yuck, badly presented and just dumped in the serving trays. Seems the staff have lost all interest in the place and the customers and seem to be treating it like a boring place that... More

Very quiet at 8pm on a Tuesday night. Limited choice for £11.95 but fortunately we had a taste card so it was half price. Some of the dishes were extremely salty & you could tell that some of the dishes had been there for a long time!! Limited choice on starters as well. My advice is go at lunchtime when... More

In complete fairness I don't think anyone expects a gourmet meal when they go to a Chinese buffet however that is no excuse for terrible food and even worse service. When trying to order a drink at the bar, I was half way through my conversation with the barman when someone came to pay and he blatantly and rather abruptly... More

Visited on a Friday afternoon - place was VERY quiet (in fact there was only one other table occuped, though another group did arrive as we were leaving) but this just meant there wasn't any jostling for position at the various buffet points as sometimes there can be at such places. Nice variety of dishes and at £5.99 you certainly... More

We have not been to real china for quite some time, and it will be a very long time before we go back. The food was horrible , really salty and some of the beef was so dry you could bounce it off the floor. All joking aside this place should have a food hygene warning on the door. Don't... More

Don't really understand the bad reviews...although I was very hungry at the time I found the food to be above average compared to other Chinese buffet style resturants. Very limited choice which is a let down

This was the second visit, the first being at lunchtime. Should have realised there was a reason for a virtually empty restaurant on a Saturday evening. Very little choice of starters, and what there were was not good quality. There were no hot plates. Limited choice of main courses and most were poor quality Chinese food. Decor on entry is... More
