Good is fantastic, staff are great towards customers, can't help you enough. The all you can eat menu is great value for money, obviously eat until your ready to pop! Will definitely be returning again, and again, and again!

We have visited the river gardens on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The quality of food is excellent and always tastes very fresh. The service is quick and efficient. If you opt for the "all you can eat special menu" you get the chance to sample several different dishes of your choice. The price is reasonable and the... More

And the quality cannot be faulted! Most all you can eat Chinese are buffet style where you help yourself. The difference here is you order at the table and everything is prepared fresh! We love it. I personally don't eat a great deal of rice, but I make up for my lack of mains with more starters whilst the rest... More

I agree with all of the positive stuff below, we don't go very often, but when ever we do, it's fantastic value, friendly staff, great, tasty food. We always go for the Sunday All You Can Eat Buffet, Yesterday we went and they weren't doing the Buffet bit of the offer, but the all you can eat was still on,... More

I've been using the River Garden for takeaways for some 20 years and I'd always rated it very highly. Good food, prompt service and pleasant staff. The last couple of takeaways haven't been quite so good - some dishes fine - but others apparently made with less skill and poorer ingredients. Whatever has changed - please change it back!

Been here a few times for the all you can eat and never had a bad experience. We like the fact that the all you can eat isn't a buffet, you chose from a menu which means its hot and fresh when it arrives. You don't have to wait long either and there is a good selection to choose from.... More
