Brilliant fresh food buffet style. Super value and tasty. This restaurant became Mimosa and now no longer there. Such a shame.

We went with our friends to this restaurant, if you like chinese food and a really good choice this is the place to go. The selection of food is really good and you can even pick uncooked food and hand it over to the chiefs to cook while you wait. There are desserts as well, a good choice from eton... More

This place was shut down some years ago and replaced with Mimosa. Mimosa has now shut down. Farnborough has basically nowhere to eat unless you go to North Camp or Frimley. In the centre you basically have a Weatherspoons.

The food here is very tasty and is regularly refreshed in order to keep a warm selection of food. The service has always been brilliant and is in a very handy location if you are planning on visiting the Vue Cinema next door. It is a little pricey for what you are getting - but I maybe did not make... More

Cheap, expect to get what you pay for - won't go back to be honest, prefer a proper restaurant but each to their own

Been several times. Clean, staff friendly and efficient. Food hot and regularly refilled. Good selection of Chinese and Thai food. Never had a bad meal, ever so reasonably priced.

Going there once is ok. I went there a second time, buffet hadn't changed at all. People are friendly even though a bit impersonal. The atmosphere is ok, on the first view, don't look closer. If you look for GF (gluten free) food this is the wrong place to go. Althought it's all you can eat, I found the price... More

As with most "serve yourself buffets" the food is a wide range of dishes. There has been a change of ownership to "Mimosa Restaurants" and this has resulted in a broader range of Asian dishes including more Indian based ones. The food is generally hot but what is most impressive is the cleanliness of the whole restaurant and especially of... More
