average at best

been here many of times to eat just because it was convenient. It worked out at £15 pp with a drink and only£5 to take away a container of your chosen food. The food is of cheap quality and not really helpful staff i would go again if was starving but defiantly not a top restaurant

In a space of 2 months between visits this place has gone downhill. They have changed the management and obviously didn't show them how to cook the food before they left. Really poor quality food that looks like it has been out all day. Less of a choice. Such a shame but I have to say I won't be back.... More

Have been coming to this restaurant shortly after it opened and noticed how the standard of the food has dropped over a period of time. Went on Saturday for the buffet was surprised to see how few people there were or perhaps maybe I should not have been, definitely not like the old days.seems like they've tried spruce the place...

We went on a Sunday lunchtime and there were a few people there. The food was luke warm with very little flavour to it. It was all very generic, not what you would call good Chinese food. Soups were disgusting and the only thing passable were those that were straight out of a packet and deep fried

The food here was really tasty. Everyone seemed to really enjoy their choices from the buffet styles dished. Some of the younger members of our group enjoyed pizza as they're not into Chinese food. Nice selection on beers too. Soft drinks and desserts a plenty would come back again

How far can a good restaurant fall ? A great shame, have been many times in the past without an issue, came back into the area - was going to meet some friends. I had to text them shortly after arriving saying don't bother - food terrible. The food looked like it had been cooked and kept warm, not unusual... More

About 7 years ago this restaurant was good, good quality food, good value for money. Year by year it deteriored. Now it's a rip off. We paid more than 30 pounds for a meal for two during the week, most of the food was cold or there was nothing left. Dirty food trays were left there in the warmers with... More

This looks to have been taken over and now not as nice. Very limited menu compared to the last time I ate there
