Service was great and efficient. Place was clean. Had a great spread of different types of dishes at the buffet. Staff were friendly and were attentive. A must try buffet if you are in the area!

I'm the first to say you get what you pay for when it comes to most things in life. However clean hygienic premises which serve food is a must. Visited here as part of a family get together and I'm pleased it wasn't my idea to choose the venue. Food quality poor. Dining areas need a thorough deep clean. Serving... More

We arrived at this fantastic looking restaurant and were looking forward to a fantastic quality buffet meal. Now I know as much as anyone that buffet and quality does not always come hand in hand but these guys have taken this to an all new low level. The place was full of chavs and the occasional decent family which I... More

Very busy at times, we waited about 20 minutes for a table. Food always hot and plenty of choice. I wanted some garlic mushrooms but the Turin was empty. A young gentleman who was one of the staff overheard me and informed me they would be out shortly as just being cooked. While we were sat eating the member of... More

This is the second time I have been here and I only went again because my mother was wanting to try it. Outside impressions are good, looks a nice place to eat, however walking in it's just feels empty, no atmosphere and cheap. Staff don't look well presented and the standard of food is very low. The chicken korma looked... More

Ok, it's an all you can eat buffet place. It isn't going to be amazing. None of them are. Some (key word there) of the food is actually reasonable considering it's catering en-masse. However, after enduring children putting their snotty hands in the food, hordes of drunk chav's pushing each other out of the way to get some more chicken... More

On the whole a lovely... More

The walls are quite grubby which is probably because they are often busy. Food is good (unless you catch it at the wrong time when pots are nearly empty). Lots of choice..Indian, Chinese and English food all available so something for everyone. I've cream and fruit salad also included. Draught lager not the best although possibly because the glasses are... More
