It is what says on the tin

We eat here often. Its a standard chinese all-you-can-eat buffet. The place is good, easy to get to and reasonably priced. The food is good too and you can order your own food if you wish. Good selection.

All I could eat was lychee (obviously canned) The food trays have opaque covers so you won't see what's inside until you open it. I dared to try sate sauce with chicken but when I ate it was like dog puke. I'm a bold man I ate grasshopper in Morocco and love all type of foods but this is so... More

I wasn't expecting much when I first saw the school dinner type serving area with the keep warm covers. However I was pleasantly surprised how tasy all the dishes were & plenty of staff on duty on a Monday night to keep things topped up. Plenty of choice & even lots of choice for deserts including a chocolate fountain. Plenty... More

Although the staff are pleasant and efficient, the layout is sterile and distinctly like a corporate canteen. The food was mediocre with quite a limited selection. The restaurant was only half full at 7.30 on a Saturday evening and quickly dwindled as did the food.

A girlfriend and I had lunch at this restaurant last week. Although cheap I feel it should have been free. The pork for the pancakes was minced and dried up, what ever happened to duck and pancakes? The main dishes had clearly been warmed to within inches of their life; one of the chicken dishes I had to take a... More

We visited as its right near the Premier Inn we stayed at. The food was average, nothing wrong with it, nothing to rave about either. Quite expensive late Saturday night price for what we got. The Perroni lager was nice and a good price however. Staff polite but we waited ages for them to replenish the crispy duck.

Went with friends. service was prompt and friendly and the food was acceptable and very good value for the price. Some dishes were excellent with obviously freshly cooked vegetables done carefully. Other dishes had chicken that tasted tinned. The main problem, however, was that there was no griddle with food cooked for you - which is a feature on the... More

Used the 'Groupon' deal, which worked out roughly half price for four adults (£26.95 for four adults)... And with this was OK.. Had we have paid full price, would have been disappointed. Food was OK, like all buffets some items better than others and they were slow at times to refill certain things. The drinks were reasonably priced, although soft... More
