What a disappointment! Having had a great couple of hours walking the beach we were drawn in by the great smell. That is the only positive thing I can say. The food was congealed, over cooked, and generally awful. I would expect more from a pot noodle. We coaxed the kids though the experience and left. I have to admit... More

Think the quality of the food has improved over last six odd months. Did go through a bad patch but all good now, very good value for... More

Visited here and the food was amazing, chinese, indian and english buffet food. Such a vast selection of choice and would be worth twice the price. Even ice cream for if you have that little bit of space left. Can't wait to go back.

An all you can eat mixture of Chinese with a bit of Indian + very nice sausages !! Yes a bit weird but very welcome and probably the best thing on the menu. This can be a very noisy place due to the low ceilings I guess but there are lots of children in here usually. It is very school... More

We often visit this restaurant if out with the Grandchildren as it is good value for money. The children are toddlers so we don't have to pay for them which is a blessing as they can be fussy eaters so we are able to introduce them to new foods as well as having the old favourites for back up.

We went here once and never again. Having often passed and said we would have to try it, we finally did and were sorely disappointed. Whilst first impressions were slightly hopeful once inside and seated it really went downhill from there. It was very busy and staff were running around like headless chickens and clearing people in and out as... More

There are a few places locally that serve all yo can eat Chinese food and we would go to any one of them ahead of this place. Food isn't changed out often enough so it looks unappetising at best.
