On holiday and we thought we would try this place. I have drove by it many a times. Think it's brilliant value for money plus there is loads to choose from. Chinese, Indian, English and a little Italian (Spag Bol)! Perfect for Lunch/ Dinner Time. Would defiantly go again.

You get what you pay for. I went with my family as we are on holiday in the area. There was a good choice of food to choose from, except the live earwig in the poppadoms wasn't on the menu. Some of the deep fried dishes were over cooked an when the foods were replenished I noticed that the left... More

Oriental Express is somewhere that I have been going to for years. For someone who is very fussy about food - I was nervous about this place when I first visited. But once I realised they have a huge range of both English and oriental foods I simply fell in love with the place. The place has a good food... More

Was visiting some friends in Cleethorpes and we decided to grab a quick dinner. The children wanted to go to this “all you can eat” restaurant, so off we went. To be honest, it’s probably not an experience I would want to repeat. The staff were friendly enough, but it’s very much a “budget” establishment costing less than 9 pounds... More

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
