Used to be a very good and reasonably priced restaurant. Although the prices are still ok the food is not as good as it used to be neither is the cleanliness of the building. Last time I went there was still dirty plates on the table from the last lot of people and it took the staff ages to sort... More

Went on a Friday night, there was two of us, there didn't seem to be much left and it was only 19:00, half of the trays were empty and we had to wait for them to be refilled however they only seemed to be re-filling some of the trays, which was the egg fried rice and chips. There wasn't much... More

Came here for a meal while on holiday - 8 of us, including 2 kids - and not 1 of us enjoyed it. 4 found hairs in their meals, chicken and sausages still pink - when this was brought up with staff, I was told it was meant to be like that! I thought that was food poisoning territory! Tables... More

Excellent choice of hot food which you help yourself to and then if want more.... you can re-fill as many times as you wish! Everything seems freshly cooked and is very tempting! Pleasant surroundings. Some of the tables overlook the "Boating Lake" where wildlife can be seen. This venue is in Cleethorpes so very handy if you are on holiday.

Chinese food is good but the Indian food is limited and all tastes the same. My biggest issue with this place and the reason I will not return is the toilets, there is never soap in the dispensers! I told them the first time I noticed just assuming it had run out but we visited 6 weeks later and the... More

Took my Son & his friend out for lunch, and they loved the all you can eat idea. We've eaten here before, and it's very good value, and we've never had a problem with the food. It's always been hot, tasty, refreshed regularly and plenty of choice. Yes, it can get a bit loud at busy times, and some people... More
