Well what can I say, first ever visit here and was very impressed, my husband and I visited with friends we was greeted very warmly by the waiters, the buffet menu was brought to us after seating us at a very comfortable booth, we ordered drinks which came quickly and ordered our soups and starters, the soups we had was...

Not visited for many years purely down to the fact I'm not a big Chinese food fan. However at just over £9 a head for an all you can eat buffet this is definitely worth a visit. The actual buffet itself is served on tables inside the actual eating area presumably because it wasn't busy. The choice of food is... More

Well I must say I was shocked to read some of the reviews on here! I wanted an all you can eat that serves everyday but to your table not a buffet. I found the river garden online and went with two friends despite it being a good 30 minute journey. We had a fantastic meal and since then I... More

Firstly I will start by saying that we have ordered from the River Gardens for many years with mixed reviews, however our most recent takeaway was awful & enough to put us off ever ordering from here again. We placed our order which we were told would be 45 mins delivery....fair enough for a Friday night, when it hadn't appeared... More

We have been dining here on and off for the last 20 years, yet it never disappoints. The food is excellent. With lots to choose from. There are two menus, the set price and the main menu. There is more choice on the main menu, but it is more expensive. Having said that there is also a good selection on... More

There is a touch of a damp smell on entering the restaurant, but that is soon forgotten. The staff couldn't be friendlier with smiles and good humour; the food (buffet) was excellent with a sufficient choice of starters and main course dishes. The helping were generous and if the four of us had had large appetites we could have gone... More

Best just to steer well clear of this place. Outrageously overpriced and the food is really greasy as other reviewers have noted. Paid £14 each for the 'eat as much as you can' but couldn't get past the very poor starters. Felt totally ripped off. Just eat somewhere else, not here.

I was returning to Belper after moving away 2 years ago, my friends and I regularly visited the River garden restaurant and was a bit concerned when reading the reviews but thought what the hell and I am glad I did. The food was FANTASTIC, came out hot and tasty as it had always. The only reason I have given... More

We decided to give this a go despite the poor ratings. Probably we could have chosen better. On the positives, we could eat all the food (we went all you can eat, probably just as well), the ribs were really scrummy, and the staff were lovely, very nice people and they really were trying. Unfortunately they weren't well trained (after... More
