£37 for two adults and 5 children all you can eat buffet on a Sunday, staff were very helpful and lots to choose from, plus ice cream with various toppings, anybody expecting the Ritz is going to be disappointed, but inexspensive lunch out for the family, anybody expecting more for that price is a complete buffoon

On a very hot day we sat outside and enjoyed the views with reasonably priced food and drinks. The choice of dishes was mind blowing.

All you can eat Chinese and Indian food sounds right up my street, unfortunately, my street is where I brought most of it back up. Sat out front in the summer is almost pleasant aslong as you don't mind poor quality ( in every sense ) beer and a stench that should gear you up for whats inside but instead... More

Food was watered down. Their idea (and the Manager/Owner regularly does this) of filling up the currys for example, is to add some water and mix around. The currys I tasted lacked taste, had the texture, colour and smell of dog urine. The toilets were dirty, smelly and looked to be unclean for some time. Overall, a waste of money... More

We enjoyed a great Asian buffet at the Oriental Express. My wife ate Indian, while I tried the Chinese fare. There was a good variety and each dish was well-cooked, flavoursome and kept nicely warm in the heated buffet. The staff were friendly and helpful - when I asked for jasmine blossom tea I was offered tea made from teabags... More

I love this restaurant, it is special enough for occasions yet casual enough for a quick treat. It is always very popular and full, I personally prefer to catch it on a quiet night as it can be a bit of a wait for a seat otherwise, but still worth it. There is a large choice of food so will...

As a fan of Chinese food I am disappointed I have tired it now on 3 different occasions just to see if it was a one off. The hygiene in this establishment is discussing tables sticky and when you do see the staff cleaning tables it's more of a tickle than a wipe. Hairs in the food as they have... More
